Lol @ Hendy Ford.
Closer to RS, but US equivalent of the old SVE (Special Vehicle Engineering) of Europe who were responsible for the RS Turbos, Cosworths and XR models.

The SVT Contour is basically the american equivalent to the ST200 and it shares the same engine/drivetrain.

Anything is possible with a little fettling however they are a lot more different than you think. Mountings are all different and also the Front bumper shape were the lights are is different but like i said, anything is possible.

With a bit of time and some filler it's possible but they certainly aren't a straight swap. The Contour bumpers stick out more and have different mounting etc to conform to US safety laws.

Saw a Coutour today. Almost fancied asking the fella if he would swap me for the Mondeo. But then I would have to remember how to drive on the wrong (right, depending on your nationality) side of the car again. Bad enough when I have to drive the wife's people carrier!

Was only an SE model and not the SVT. Plus if my memory is correct, the contours weren't all that great of a car in the States. Low spec, very generic inside. One of my mates partner had one back in 99-00 timeframe and drove it a couple of times. Funny how the European Mondeo is so much more pleasing to me than the Stateside contour was.
