66 ford galaxie convertable

Hey guys, I am going to look at a 66 Galaxy convertible soon. Just wondering what to look for as far as rust on the frame, major issues to check etc.

Hello Garycc,

The 1965-1968 frames are notorious for rusting from the inside out. What may look like a perfectly good frame from the outside will not always be the case.

I'd purchase a borescope camera and peek inside the access holes.

Here's some pictures from a seemingly good 1966 frame. But it wasn't.
