The mid section of a 1965 Mustang full Floor Repair Pan will fit a Gran Torino. The cross supports were removed from this car because the original type of seats and cross supports were not going to be used in it. You might be able to leave your cross supports installed, if they are still good. You can see that you have to trim to fit like any other patch panels. There is a picture below of a pair of the mid sections of a 1965 mustang full floor repair pan.

The pans appear to be cut out from the mid section of a 1965 mustang "Full floor pan". These "mid sections" are probably available for sale seperately without having to buy the full floor pan.

There is a picture below of a 1965 mustang full floor pan. The blue outline is the portion that jimmy had used to repair his floor pans.

There is a company that sells the right side for $60.75 plus shipping and they sell the left side for $61.75 plus shipping. The blue outline in the picture below shows the portion of the pan that they sell. There is probably another company that just sells a smaller portion of the pans for a lower price.

That is excellent! I wonder if it could be easily adapted to a wagon floorpan?

He had also made a repair pan for underneath the left rear lower seat. He had used the 1965 mustang right side under rear seat pan to make a patch panel, for the left rear under seat area. In the picture below the blue outline is the portion of the panel that he had used.

Then he had trimmed the excess metal off of the panel to make it fit better.

Then he had drawn an outline in the rear floor where he was going to fit the new patch panel.

Then the patch panel was trimmed some more to fit into the area that was cut out and it was welded into place.
