This is a good example of what can be accomplished with an old rusted out body.

It’s called a rotisserie restoration. The bronco is mounted on a rotisserie that I built for this purpose. The old frame is still attached to as to the body, and an inner structure of tubing welded into the passenger compartment.   The body and frame were taken to the frame shop first to make sure the geometry was correct, and then the tubing was welded in place. This insures that the body’s geometry will remain correct all through the repair process. The customer has already restored another frame and has a complete rolling chasse waiting for me to complete the restoration on the body.

The last time someone tried to repair the area under the left tail light they just made a mess of it. So it is marked and will be cut out.
