Hi, i just bought a crown victoria 2011 for cheap, thinking to rebuild and fix it.
But now I see pretty bad damage on the frame(I live in Canada, winter is bad for cars).
So my question is, can I fix this? I took pictures

Welcome to the FFO!

Anything can be fixed given enough time and money.
Are the mounts shown, in the same position just on the left and right of the vehicle?

Hi, thanks for answering.
Yes the bad one is on the left side.
The pictures are both left and right side.
Last owner repaired the floors this summer.

You bought it for cheap. The correct repair will be anything but cheap.

Unless you have to repair it because of local laws, I would only do some preventative measures then drive it til it drops.
There are a lot of these Crown Vics, a lot.
My guess is the correct repair would exceed what you paid for the vehicle if you paid a shop.

Wire brush the loose stuff and paint with POR 15 for the area. The paint won't make the metal any better. It just stops future rusting.

The worst one is doing almost nothing. If there is a bit of metal still attached to the mount it may make some sounds as the vehicle flexes. You might move any loose body metal away from that mount.
