    it is evident they used a taurus wagon tail, but regardless, they did an amazing job! Great find!!

    Pretty well done, I wondered what a wagon version of these would have looked like since they never offered one, according to a Ford designer at the time, they never even considered drawing up a wagon proposal.

    It gets a little strange with the transition from the narrower Taurus roof to the wider LTD body.

    They should have widened and lengthened the Taurus rear assembly to better fit the CV BUT still the workmanship looks great

    Agree. It's like "There, I fixed it" got plastic surgery.

    Love the idea, and I suppose they did they best they could using Ford parts... but, well, it's a little weird. Might have worked as well with an Explorer rear section...
