    This will need to be checked by a body shop and they will be able to answer these questions for you. Good Luck!

    all fox body mustangs are unibody vehicles( no conventinal frame ) the body shell itself is the main structure of the car.Those cars are essentially two pieces, that connected at the firewall, the engine compartment and the passenger compatment if all of the damage is in front of the door you could probably get away with just buying a front clip from donor vehicle, or just the side that is damaged!
