Is there a way to remove the entire body from the frame on a 1968 Merc Cougar?

Using an engine hoist attached to the seat belt mounts is a popular way to do it. It lifts the entire body at once, instead of lifting the front then trying to lift the back, and can be balanced as well.

That's what I was afraid of... there is a lot of rust on the underside. This car sat in the woods for about 7 years and I finally have a house with a garage. I am starting the restore now and it is UGLY under there. any advise is greatly appreciated. If anyone knows where I can get some parts like a hood that would be helpful also.

Hi djkleen, I would suggest looking through this list of Salvage Yards which can be found here: www.oldride.com/directory/junkyard.html

Good Luck!
