This one needs to be hunted down.
The exterior looks to be in too good of a condition to let it die.
Floors and stuff are common to all our cars but the bosy is Montego only and no one makes repair panels.
Hell I'd put it at the farm and spray the quarters with something to keep them from rusting/rotting anymore!
 
Seriously, someone help us find this one!

After looking at other photos, I realized I had seen the yard before, but not the car.

A friend told me he saw Torinos in a junk yard near Abilene Tx, so I went and although there was a lot of neat old cars, no Torinos, well there was half of one! There were Rancheros, and Wagons, but everything was pretty picked over or weather ruined. All I saw worth getting was set of knobs for lifting the seat back (hard to find) and possibly some trim or a bumper. Kind of a disappointment. Here's a some shots.

1975 Montego MX - all they took a picture of was the emblem


'74 Montego sedan. Dude was selling whole cars. This is the same yard that a very rusty gold '72 MGT was found in

The gold, wrecked, and rusty '72 MGT (already recorded)

Hey Walt, are those pictures you took? If you did, are any of those still around? I wouldn't mind a nice shiny grill shell and/or tail light doors. Haha. I'm heading to a local yard in the morning. I'll take some pictures while there. Not sure if Paul has taken or posted pictures from there.

Each of those car pictures takes you to a Picasa album full of pics of that car. Like the '73 Montego in dark blue, click it come to find its a sedan and I wish I could have all those pliable looking door seals and roof rail strips and door panels and B/C pillar trim and so much more.
