The 87 frame is twin I-beam, sway bars front and rear. Haven't seen this frame swap before and I now see why. Every dimension on the 87 frame is different than the 64. I'm not giving up, just more thinking and more work.

You can always use the front end from a 03+ crown victoria. On the later models the cross member unbolts from the car and happens to be the right width for an F150. It lowers the truck some and rides like a dream. Check it out over at FTE. There is a bunch of threads over there on the topic. It is pretty popular with the 70's models but your truck frame should be the same.

Here is another option one using a Marauder frame which should be the same as the crown victoria.

Heres how I did the hood of my 62 (same as yours I believe) with the same leading edge rust out.
After cutting out the rot I used 1/8 rod to form the leading edge. Welded patches to it and then ground it down. Good luck with yours...

that is some good looking work. Mine doesnt have to be perfect...i like your idea of the rod, i am a long ways away from worrying about the hood at this point, but I definetly will keep your work in the back of my mind, so when i do get to that point, I'll have an idea where to start. before you posted this, I had No idea how to make it look right....
thanks
