there's a thread on here "65 mustang pans work" or something like that...

 FWIW i have a rear footwell new mustang pan left as my car was good back there on that side so i cut that part off and just used the front section...

Yeah that does sound like a disapointment. I might be better off buying sheets of steel and making my own. That sounds like the way to go.

if you look at the second picture thats a store bought pan ,
 they are flat with little profile-  
if you look at the old piece in the picture with hole in it they even have the profile backwards, 

short of 80.00 with shipping for 1 pan ,
 i bought 4 foot x 4 foot of 18 gauge metal for 40.00

I was looking on the auto krafters website. They have floor pans on there. Anyone know if those are any good ? I was thinking about getting those for my 73 gts but dont want to get them if they are crap.

The window was down for who knows how long. I had to jump the switch the other day to get the window up or there would have been 20 gallons in there with the last couple days of rain.

Yeah, I know......but the point is that now you can see what the CV floor is, and get a better idea of what you'll need to do

They are putting a complete pan and frame under a torino, we were considering cutting patch panel/partial pans out of a CV. Both are roughly the same size, with a channeled frame...

That Crown Vic idea is interesting.
Have to see if I could get a floor pan cheap to check it out.
Thanks,

Has anyone looked at Crown Vic floorpans?
Cars are the same size, frames are similar...
I know a couple threads here talk about doing a whole floor/CV frame swap to install mod motors, but might also work as patch panels.
And there's millions and millions of them.
 
Just looked at the C2C pans....
What crap.
Better off with a sheet of metal, a brake and a bead roller.

Yeah, not worth the money at all to me. Even if free.

Starting to think I am going to have to buy a full used pan just to get the section I need. Which would not be good, since I already have one I bought that is only missing the one section. I didn't think it would be so hard to find someone selling it by itself.
Still, 4/5ths of a pan is better than what I have in the car right now.

We bought a cheap plasma cutter because my wife wanted to play with one. Might give it a go on the Ranchero floor.

These floor pans are incompatible and total sh*t. I just wonder how they can even sold these with name Torino. You can buy same sheet metal plate from hardware store.

Yes. I have one set. I hate being cheated AngryAngryAngry

I'm still looking for a driver's side front pan from the seat support on, including at least the toeboard of the firewall.
Just saying. Embarrassed

And as far as those aftermarket pans, unless you can find what John was referring to I would avoid the new bent pieces of junk that most are selling for our cars. I am NOT a metalworker in the least, and I could do better. Now, Mustangs are no problems, can get a whole stamped floor or just about any piece you need. Not even expensive.

Pun intended! Thanks, I'll get a better look soon. There is a guy from Vancouver Canada who always has an ad looking for 72 Montego parts that I see on my Seattle search if you are looking to get rid of some parts.

I called Desert Valley about floor pans because I was going to be down there in January. They sell the pans in quarters at $199 each so that would be $800 plus shipping.

I picked up the t-bird today and the floor pans look pretty solid, hopefully there are no hidden surprises.
