Are you thinking about restoring a First Generation Mustang from the ground-up and are not quite sure where to begin? If so, the Mustang’s frame is an excellent place to start! Like the human skeleton, the Ford Mustang frame is the main supporting structure of your muscle car, and is the central foundation to which all vehicle components are attached. If you are ready to address your Mustang frame, don’t forget about the Mustang frame rails and Mustang torque boxes! Mustang frame rails are the two skinny large pieces of sheet metal that flank your Mustang floor pan.
A Ford Mustang features two Mustang frame rails, one for each side of the car, that typically run the entire length of your vehicle’s body. If you are looking to install new Ford Mustang frame rails, it would be wise to begin looking at Mustang torque boxes at the same time. Mustang torque boxes are patch panels that connect the floor pan, the inner rocker panel, and the Mustang frame rails. The Ford Mustang torque boxes provide a sturdy presence for the car’s overall foundation, while preventing the body from flexing and the frame from twisting or bending.
Because of their physical location underneath the car’s body and close to the road surface, your Mustang frame rails and torque boxes will endure a fair amount of wear and tear as the years go by. Over time, your Ford Mustang frame rails and torque boxes can begin to weaken, stretch, or even tear after many years of facing impact and resisting flex through turns. Additionally, since they are made out of metal, your Mustang frame rails and torque boxes are subject to rust or corrosion. If you are concerned about lack of support for your Mustang’s frame, it would be wise to start shopping around for new Mustang frame rails and torque boxes.
