Project: 1995 Touring Sedan
As the Touring Sedan stopped production in 1993, I always wondered what a 95 Touring Sedan would have been like. 1994 saw the introduction of the far superior dashboard on the 98/88 and the L36 came out in 1995, of course.
Now, as I have a 1995 98, and a trashed 1993 Touring Sedan parts car, I thought it might be fun to build the worlds only 1995 Touring Sedan.
Major differences in the TS:
- HD Tranny 3.06 gear
- FE3 suspension with 16 inch wheels
- Speed adjustable steering
- Super duper Lear Siegler buckets
- Console with floor shift
- Black trim replacing chrome
- Full instrumentation
- Body Colour grille
- TS badges etc.
I think I got them all.
Now, the suspension changeover is pretty easy. Wheels also. Lear Siegler seats are a bolt in, with the caveat that I might have to do some wiring. Not sure how the console will fit. Trim I can transfer over easily also. Body colour grille can be had off of the LSS.
The harder stuff: 3.06 gear will wait until a future tranny rebuild.
Speed sensitive steering - This will require some research. New rack definately. Gotta wire it into the computer somehow.
Full insrumentation- I have the 3 dial analog right now. The four dial (with Tach) from the LSS should be a drop in EXCEPT for the fact that I have an analog odometer and trip odometer off to the right, while the four dial has digital odometer and trip odometer below the Speedo. Not sure where they get the feed for the Odo from.
Wanna do some basic performance mods to the L36 anyway (LIM porting, freerer exhaust and intake, etc).
I don't wanna do anything too radical as this is my daily driver. But I am thinking it will make for a fun project.
