can I use a frame from a 68 galaxie wagon, for my 68 galaxie convertible build? Or does it need any mods?

Based on the diagrams in my 1969 shop manual, there are some slight differences between the two models. The wheelbases appear to be the same. I think 68 and 69 are the same generation platform, but there may be differences. Find a copy of the 68 shop manual(s) and examine the diagrams closely. It will almost certainly require some modifications to make it work. Compare the frames side-by-side if going to attempt this. You probably should avoid a Mercury frame. It looks like they have a longer wheelbase.
