This looks just like my red 73 Gt! It was og orange but now red just like mine! It looks pretty solid. I wonder if there is an engine? There are no pictures of it.

I doubt it, looks like it was pillaged for parts, I was interested until I saw the rad rail cut up. can't help but wonder if this was another (swap) abandonment.

I'd bet that was another lazy engine and gearbox removal.
And it isn’t even that hard to drop an engine. It took my grandpa and I a few hours to drop an engine.

This makes the most sense. Maybe it was a parts car and had a good motor. But being a parts car, no concern about butchering. Or, the motor was good/not good and removed for another ill-fated swap. Again, no need to worry about the radiator support.

However, radiator supports are not commonly rusty and can be replaced a lot easier than....Floorplan? Still might be worth looking at....for say $1000 if not rusty/bondo-ey.
