  • torque box replacement

    I inherited an email seeking a shop in the Dallas area with the experience/capability to change a torque box on a '78 Avanti. I have not done this myself and do not know of anyone who has. Does anyone out there have a suggestion?

    I know Dave T-Bow does it in Mass. for $3000 plus parts. (40 hours labor) The labor hours should give you a guide if you find a local guy.

      A little closer to home, you might call Jr. at Independent Body and Paint in Houston. His phone number is 713-462-6947. He did torque boxes on my 62GT. I know they are different on an Avanti, but these guys are the best. In their shop right now they have a Triumph TR-4, that is having a complete bottom 1/2. They have two Porsche Carrera's that were wrecked, and several restorods that they are rebuilding. Also, a 67 Rambler that is getting a new floor.????

        I just checked my old Mitchell Crash Guide. While the parts was listed for $41.80 (1966), there was no labor time listed for that part. It was 4.0hrs for an outer rocker panel...
