Are the rear quarters on a 70 Torino coupe the same as on a fastback? I found a near cherry coupe and the price is right for the quarter.

There is a body line that runs the length of the car on a coupe that the fastbacks don't have. The wheel opening is the same,but that's about it.

Well now here is the million dollar question: Does anybody sell new sheetmetal like quarterpanels for a Torino fastback? You can buy them for any other non Ford car.

There is a company in Canda that hand makes a lower quarter for the 70-71 Torinos. I can't remember the name, but they aren't expensive, about $100. The quarter only comes up to just below the character line above teh wheelhouse. Be sure your outer wheelhouses are in excellnt condition as well.

Be sure you have a GOOD bodyman install these, as they do require ALOT of work to make them look good. I have one on the driver's side of my 70 GT and the guy who did the work was awesome.

Buntmans states on thier site that they have the lower quarters for the 70-71 model, but they do not list a price.
