Passenger front torque box and frame rail rust repair

"I paid $1200 for it. I paid pretty much what I could have gotten out of it parting it out. (9 inch rear, 351W C90E block and heads, P/S, A/C, and misc trim parts/wiring should have been worth at about $1200 collectively) I figure after buyng all…"

"I am really liking the Procar Elite seats in black vinyl. I think they are a little more "trip friendly". They are more of a Recaro design and look to be designed more for daily use than the race seats. Thanks for the heads-up on the seat…"

Passenger front torque box and frame rail rust repair

"I suppose it could be worse... I could have needed wh*** frame rails. :) I have been called crazy for saving this car anyway because most every piece of the the exterior sheetmetal requires replacement along with the floors and rails being shot. I…"

"Thanks! That pic was before the spacers were installed. (that's why the jack was still under it) Maybe this spring I will get a better pic of them on the car if I ever get the car pushed out of the garage."

"Dining room? Bring it on over! I have plenty of room under the back of my car. :) I have been toying with the idea of a Heidt's Mustang II front end. We will see how much custom suspension I do based on how the body turns out. The body…"

My 1969 Mustang fastback Mach 1 project in the beginning

"Wow, I never knew they made so many body panels for 69 Mustang/Rustang! I owned three flawless 1969 Mustang Mach 1's with engines ranging from a mild 351W with the 4 barrel, 390 and my beast of them all, my 428 Cobra Jet. I need to get some…"

Profile Information

First Name
Chris
My name is Chris Martin. I am a Mustang enthusiast. I have owned several Mustangs over the years, but life has always found a way of making me sell my pride and joy for the greater good. I think this one is safe...as I am older and at a better place in life now and I have more automotive experience now than in the past. (I was a Mercedes Benz Master Tech for 6yrs at Mercedes Benz of Nashville until last last year when I changed careers.)

I found this car after it sat under a tree for 19 years. Someone put a vinyl top on it to cover some bad body work on the roof.

By the time I got it the roof had rotted and caved in. The damage extended down into the upper rear 1/4s. The front torqueboxes and full floors still need to be replaced as well as the shock towers and passenger outer rocker.

So far I have replaced the roof, both full rear 1/4s, and both doors. They are only attached with sheetmetal screws for now because I had to quickly assemble the car to move it from Nashville, TN to Ephrata, PA due to a job transfer. I will weld them in place once I am happy with their position. Right now the driver rear 1/4 isn't fitting very well. I believe it to be due to a mis-stamping of the repro 1/4 panel.

I will post updates and pics as I go. Keep checking!

nice stang project the roof did look nasty but its a good thing these cars are easy to work on kinda intimidating at first but pretty simplefor the do it yourselfer. hey on that mustang II front suspension check mine out its all one piece mandrel bent 2X4 with all attachments for rack steering and sway bar and upper and lower control arms etc. i would go with this set up over all the other pieces you have to welld all together this is a simple cut and a couple of welds and your done mine cost only around 300-400 bucks and its strong as hell at least look into it website is www.cachassisworks.com these guys got all kinds of s*** for pretty much every application i use them for shocks crossmembers for alot of things so check into it.

Very cool project. Lots of work. But it is a lot of fun to work on a classic Mustang! I have owned 6 Mustangs and have have all of them in pieces at one time or another. What are your plans for this car? engine, suspention, drive train, paint.....? Good luck!
