I was concerned over whether a car that didn't come with one would have the provisions to add one in. It's a daily driver (230k) with a street resto (paint, interior, suspension). Since my daughters both drove it to high school I added safety stuff: Granada PD brakes, shoulder belts, and high back seats out of a '70. I'm just working it to keep it functional/safe and drive it forever.

Take a lot of measurements and pictures! As far as the panels go I would try to replace as much metal as needed and go one panel at a time. Some areas you might have to remove more than one panel but remember that the car has a unibody and basically the body is the frame.

Ford started putting the passenger side torque box in the cars (Mustang coupes and fastbacks) in 68 and if you had a 6 I canít remember if they got them but I think they did. You can add one very easily if you donít care about the car being original. Besides itís your car so you can do what you want with it.
