94 CV has a 4.6, so distributorless ignition, fuel injection, computer controls power for lights, etc....
Not saying it couldn't be done, but major differences in the harnesses.

Sounds like a major headache. I would find a donor harness/es set and go to it.

Welcome!  Like other's said like using a Crown Vic wiring harness is an idea that wouldn't save you any time.  I think you'd be better off to fix your original, find a used wiring harness, or find an aftermarket harness.
 
Unless you are planning on swapping over the 4.6L from the Crown Vic into the Torino.  Then I could see trying to adapt the Crown Vic engine harness.
