If one side looks like this the other is not far behind, replacing torque boxes is not a beginners project.

If fishboy is working on the 67 in his signature then he will only have a drivers side torque box. It was not until the 68 model year that a passenger side torque box was added.

And if so, this would be a good time to add one to the passengers side.

Where are you located? If any where near Illinois or Wisconsin I know someone that loves to do that kind of work.

Fishboy,
Hows the rest of the under carriage? The floor don't look bad in that immediate area, but hard to believe it wouldn't be.

Are you referring to yourself? Curious what kind of work you all do. I have some painting and finish assembly to do yet. About 2 hours north of you.

Yes the drivers side pan will need to be replaced. The previous owner added a pc of sheet metal also at the floor to fire wall.
