So once I got my car jacked up and was able to crawl underneath it, I realized the rust was worse than I thought.
There's so much fiberglass in those floorpans that I'd believe someone if they told me they drove it here from Cuba. 😂
Luckily the rust is confined to the floor and trunk. It's solid everywhere else. I'll be good to go after a pan swap.

Tbe big question is, which pans will fit (or closly fit with mild mods) my 73 GTS coupe?
There are no local Torino's for sale at the moment, but I found a wrecked '72 Montego sedan.
Will the floor pans and trunk pan fit?

It sure would be a good donor. Check the cowl areas as well.

72-79 mark series Lincoln, 72-76 t-bird, Any midsize wagon, 4-door, or ranchero 72-79 will work, but they all have a 4" longer wheelbase and will need to be trimmed in the rear seat area.

Thank you guys! That's very helpful, I've seen some Lincolns floating around for cheap too.

Has anyone ever used Classic 2 Current pans?

It would be super convenient to have these shipped to my door for a few hundred dollars.

i bought a pair of the rear pans like that (probably made by them and sold by others) they are NOT stamped pans like original, the curved corners are just sheared and bent in a brake! i think i paid $79 ea. i could have made them the same way for about $10 but live and learn!
