Body Assembly Manual General Contents ?

If anybody has one of those Body Assembly Manuals, lemme know if it has any info similar to what I'm looking for and I'll order one ASAP.

Today I removed the seats, pulled the carpet, and was surprised, to say the least. The entire floor is basically gone; one of the previous owners just screwed sheetmetal across the entire floor area and gooped a lot of what looks like roofing tar under, over and around everything.

But more importantly, it also appears the some (at the least) of the frame 'box' members or 'Torsion Boxes(?)' (if that's what you call them) under the floor are seriously rusted, rusted or through.

Before I can replace the floor pans (and I see they available from several vendors), and I'm guessing I can get a sheetmetal shop to roll a new tunnel, But I have to do some serious repair to the framing members before tackling that.

If the Body Assembly Manual has any details or info of the understructure, besides just "...original Ford trim parts instruction drawings..." (which is the only description for the manual that I can find), I should be alright.

The car is pretty solid and rust free, except for the floors, and I see there are replacement floor pans available. I just wanna be sure I have the structual torsion frame underneath 'correct' before I put in the replacement floor pans.

Get a shop manual. It's your best buddy for any car new or ancient.
