Been a while since I've posted. I am starting on a '66 galaxie 500 XL. It was hit and a donor frame and body are going to be used. The question I would like to pose is even though the frame is tweak-a-lated in the back and front is it worth trying to sell or give away as it is a south western frame and relatively free of corrosion?
Or is it just best to slice it up and scrap it?
Here are the pictures for consideration.
Poor thing was pounded pretty hard in the back.
Did a number on the body as well.
Rippled the quarter panel and sail panel.
The whole body on the passenger side is pushed and twisted up. This body jig is accurate to 1/16" of an inch.
The whole trunk floor is pushed up on this side.
The chassis was stripped today as I need the coil springs (selected for the weight of the XL interior, FE, C6 and factory air con), heavy duty (large bearing) 9 inch and FE mounts. Everything else is just spares.
It looks like the rear damage was confined to this area in the back.
The front damage looks like a side impact as the radiator support and bumper frame extrusions are bent to the drivers side slightly.
What do you think worth selling, giving it away or just scrap it?
