We have had quite a few questions about installing our Mustang II kit in cars that don’t lend themselves well to a conversion. Sometimes “modifying the frame rails” is necessary. What exactly do we mean by that?
I thought I’d put together some pictures that show a few frames that have been modified to accept a Mustang II crossmember. If you have any questions about your frame or any of our parts, please email or call toll-free: 1-888-648-2150.
If you’ve put our in something “weird”, please send us some pictures!
Would really like to see a 1949-51 shoebox Ford installation.
If anyone has pictures from their shoebox install, send them my way and I’ll put them on the blog.
After you have spent a lot of time modifing the frame rails to accept the cross member, you might save a couple a hundred dollars, over buying a sub frame from Fat Man ready to weld in. Its not worth the trouble.
Doesn’t each person have to decide this? We provide parts to help people save money (your figures… “couple a hundred dollars”), have fun (your words: “spent a lot of time” equals fun for lots of builders), and feel great (Lots of people: “Look at what I did, dear!”). For you this might not work in this case. I hope we can help with other areas of your project.
