I have swapped out my frames on my 72 GTS and I have the old one is ready to roll. Litterally. Front suspension, steering, rear end is all there. I'll sell whole or cut where anyone needs it cut. I had a guy who wanted it but he's blown me off for 3 weeks now, so before the town begins yelling about "junk" and enforcing the "junk laws" I offer it up here whole or pieces. If it doesn't go whole, I'll cut into quarters and stash it behind my shed. Will ship but at your cost. Trades considered too.                Ron

What part of New York are you at? I just got a 72 GTS I'm working on restoring too! Tongue
Dont need any framework on it, but thought I'd ask.

Wow....Rome NY here, just joined this forum...been a "Torino nut" for a long long time, but now, as Jill Wagoner says, "I gotta put Mercury on my list" so, Mercury it is in the form of a 1976 Montego MX....it should be here this weekend. I cant wait! I want to restore her to OE, right down to the WSW tires (looking at Firestones...for an authentic look) and OE hubcaps. She sat in a barn for the past twenty years....

Never saw the car while I was there.

Well I wish I could get that frame from you!!!
I NEED IT!!!!
But I cannot get it from there to Kansas right now and even if I could I too have no where to store it either!
I will not be back from Iraq til Oct this year THEN will start working on my 72.
