Need to replace both the front torque boxes for my 1970 convertible. What I've seen on line from Sherman and others excludes the convertible Cry.  Do you know of anyone that makes them, or do you have drawings or sketches that I could use to have them made?Thumbs Up

I might just be wrong, but will say it for sakes of discussion hopefully for you to come up with a solution,

Been a long time since I seen and played with a convertible, but isn't the torque box the same as a hard time plus a brace welded on to it?

again, been a long time since I seen one.

See what the ones for a 69-70 mustang look like.
67-70 mustang, 66-69 falcon, 66-69 fairlane/torino are all derivatives of the same chassis.
I don't think the 70-71 torino changed structurally, also not sure whether the steering was the only change for 71-73 Mustang
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

All 70-71 Torque boxes are the same. It doesn't matter if it's a convertible, fastback or Ranchero. They are all the same.
