   SORRY I know there is suppose to be pics (just thought you might want to know what I cut up)
 Scraped a 69 mustang coupe (cut it up with an ax and 5#sledge)That really sucked so I bought a set of torches for my second chop job (it was also a 69 stang coupe) So much easier. These were in late 74.  
  Then in 80 I cut up a (SORRY GUYS) 75 gran torino wagon.
  86 I cut up a 75 elite and I hated to do that but it was a money pit and back then this cars were not that popular.
  Since the mid 90s my son and I have cut up 3 fox bodies.
  SORRY about no pictures as this was back when I was just doing it to try and make a few greenbacks.

My uncle had an 87 F-150 sitting in his yard at his farm. He wanted it gone so he gave it to me so I could use the engine for my Torino but it ended up needing a rebuild. Just pulled the 351W and c6, everything else was way to far gone to save. Took it to the scrap yard when the prices were high and got a decent chunk of change.

And yes, that is a tree growing in the back of the truck. Had about a foot of compost pile/dirt in the bed.

Memorial Day weekend I tore this Q Code baby apart and will scrap it this week.
Lots of goodies left, but really got tired of being near the bucket loads of rat feces, so leaving the seat and rear end in it.

Joe...did you pull the axles and carrier? I'd be curious if that has the N case under it.

I did pull the rear end out of it...with a Sawzall and 2 blades. The lower arms are a piece of cake to cut, but the uppers are rough to slice through. I made sure I was not underneath it (all the crud hanging to the undercarriage).

Looks to have been changed out before it was parked. No N case, no tag, awfully clean. With the exhaust system they had on it, and it being a Q Code, there is no telling what it is.

Hmm. So, it's got a standard case. If automatic, and the Q code, I'd wager it was a 3.25:1 geared car, like the 74 Q code I parted out a few years back.

It would have a ''N" embossed on the front of the pumpkin .  My Q code has 3.25 , it's a shame the 1/4s are bad, as I was concidering them.

No N, but door tag shows a code for a 3.25 ratio. I ended up keeping the door tag, dash vin number and both cab numbers off it as a reminder of what a shame it was it became so rotten. I'll pick up the other Ranchero this Friday or Saturday. It is totally complete but will probably end up parted out.

Awesome! I was telling Ian that I use my Wrangler and a big chain to roll all mine on their sides. I have to be careful, as there is a 50 foot dropoff by my garage (as anyone who has been there will attest) and I've almost toppled over that in the Jeep by doing this, LOL. Your backhoe is MUCH nicer to use.

2 more receipients of the sawzall treatment. The Prelude was a project car for C that (after 4 years) she decided that she was not that attached to. The Ranchero was a true GT that gave it's parts to several people for their cars.

I keep the control arms that will come off. However, I get pretty whacked when I try and try - just to strip a nut or something. That is when my little helper makes quick work of popping out that rear end.

Always keep sway bars when they are the larger type and the crossmembers. Ranchero was a GT, but a low option 302 with the smaller bar.

This is one I cut up to make a race car out of but never used it. If only I knew betterCry. This was in 1980 when I did it.

Here's a bird I bought that I planned to restore.
I decided to strip instead.
At the same time I sent this one to the yard
 
Those 2 cars gave me a decent inventory of parts.

Don't have any photos yet and I didn't do this, BUT I know a guy on the Maverick forum that had a '72 GTS 4 speed that was too rusty and scrapped. I've PM'ed him about the car's specifics. The engine (now stroked to 393ci) and the toploader now live in his '70 Maverick.

This is my 1969 Torino GT Formal top. We restored it, drove it for a month, and a student driver totaled it 
:(  We've brought it home to be a parts car to another 69 formal top body once we can find one.

BTW, I'm Jolene. New to the group. :)

Sorry, let me try that again. This is my 1969 Formal top GT. It was totaled when a student driver decided to turn left in front of us. We'd only dirven the car about a month after restoration. We've kept him to be a parts car for when we find a replacement GT formal top (69 only). That's proving difficult to find!!

I hope I can save the wheel lips, only problem there is the right front wheel lip is junk, I'm not gonna need the vinyl top trim, it looks to be in good shape, no dings or dents if anybody might want them. It has the rally gauges complete with the bezel , I've already got three sets of those, I'll check the wiring once I get the car which will be in a couple weeks, it's way back in the woods and gonna take some time to get to it, plus its too dang hot out right now lol
