Yo John,
Welcome!
I haven't heard of or seen such an installation.
But here is someinfo for you ;

NOTE: Ford recommends the use of safety belt systems for all vehicle occupants.


The supplemental air bag restraint system is designed to provide increased accident protection for front seat occupants IN ADDITION TO that provided by the three point safety belt system. Safety belt use is necessary to obtain the best occupant protection and to receive the full advantages of the supplemental air bag restraint system.

To add to miesk's info, the columns, wiring, and wheel/bag can be interchanged with a bit of work, but getting the sensors and computer in place would be the key to making it function. There are some swap threads for putting a non-airbag wheel ('92-93) in later years. Look those up and just reverse engineer the steps.

Before getting too into a 94-96 airbag, consider that those were about the first airbags ever implemented. They were not as safe or "comfortable" as ones from 10 years later. Many of the "horror stories" you hear about airbags were from this generation of bags.

Ive not had the experience of a 94-96 bag going off, but have credited the one in my 03 Mach 1 with saving my teeth in 2017. T-boned a grand marquis at 65mph. Airbag deployed about halfway between my face and the wheel, and was just barely hot, but didnt leave a burn at all. The bag deployed and contacted my face just as the seat belt locked. I walked away with just a very slight bruise from the shoulder belt and a concussion. Ive had quite a few concussions so they occur much easier.

That being said, I have no clue if a newer airbag could be retrofitted into a 94-96 wheel. Idk much anything about the SRS system in these old fords. None of mine have one.

You can replace the wheel with a 97+ wheel and airbag. I haven't ever set one off, but the airbag computer doesn't complain and the resistances are the same. I assume it would fire in an accident
