1971 convertible rear frame rail

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the difference between the coupe/fastback frame rail and the convertible frame rail?

I am looking to buy the torque box and rail as one piece however, CJ only lists the passenger side for the vert.

Also, has anyone ordered from Mr. Mustang? they seem to be quite a bit cheaper than CJ

As i suspected, the only difference between the rails is the torque box. The vert torque box is more narrow due to the width of the inner rocker. Therefore you can buy the fb/coupe rail and notch the torque box. This is what ill be doing as I'm going to make some custom inner rockers

I can't help but wonder if simply installing subframe connectors might not eliminate the need for inner rockers on the 'verts. That would surely open up the options available for exhaust systems and other things that the added underbelly superstructure gets in the way of.

On the 6566 years there is another piece of metal that runs inside the rear frame rail. Its a right angle piece roughly 1"*2.5, and it's spot welded along the lenght. I don't believe the replacement has it.
