1985 Turbo Coupe Frame

Post by TBird23T »

I have a 1985 Thunderbird 2.3L turbo coupe that has a rotted out frame. The big down side to this is that everything else is in great condition, which makes it hard to just get rid of it. It sat for over 20 years in a garage where it obviously was not stored properly.

Any suggestion on where I can find a frame? I am well aware of my options to junk it, part it or repair it. I am hoping to find a new or good used frame but have been having a hard time finding a replacement frame for this car on the internet. I have been thinking of calling the junk yards in my area but am also trying to avoid buying another car for the frame.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

You won’t find a frame, the car is unibody. That being said it’s built on the Fox platform which is what mustangs were. Possibly you could find some repair pieces trying that route
