    I'd say it was welded on to solid metal ahead of and behind the rust, but exactly how solid it is...hard to say. There are no door-fender gap issues so it seems to me the upper half of the frame rail must be fully intact, and the lower half is of course absent, then patched. It's probably "fine" structurally but my concern with it is that it can very quickly become "very not fine" if the welds let go, and while I am not any sort of knowledgeable welder, those don't look like quality welds to me.

    Hmm...I believe that's been posted in this thread before. That's roughly a half hour further travel time than what I just did to go see that '80 Town Car, which was in London lol (Ilderton is right adjacent to London).

    Can't remember why I told myself I didn't wanna do that, but there was a reason. I'll talk to my buddy and see if he wants to go that route.

    If anyone is interested in a 1986 grey on grey Grand Marquis with flawless frame and very good but not perfect body for about $1k, please get in touch. Car is in Windsor. Runs, drives and stops. Perfect dash pad. Needs tires before it can roll on its own again. Front bumper has rust peeking through the chrome, rear is good. Package tray behind rear seat is absent as was either moisture or sun damaged, I forget which. Only body issues are minor paint issues and some rust by one of the cornering lamps, as far as I know so far.

    A contact of mine saved it from the crusher and intended to put it on the road, but has run into a financial situation and needs to sell it. I am buying it pending availability of storage at another friend's house to save it from the derby. Seller is mostly connected to derby people and is trying to get me to save it from them, because if he sells it to anyone else, it will go to that fate. However if I can't line up a buyer it'll be a moot point having saved it.
