Forget it, not gonna happen !! There IS no easy way - If you want the repair to last......

The Mustang is (and always has been) a unibody car. That's why Ford could build them so cheaply before unibody became an industry standard.
When you have frame damage to a vehicle, you have to bend, straighten and weld until the repair is finished. Spot welding won't last very long. After you hit too many potholes, the spotwelds will crack and break, then you have to start all over again.

You mean under a fast back body? You would probably have to modify it or the body as the Torino was longer. The Mustang had its own frame it did not share it with another model.

I added a link for frame replacement on Mustangs see below

NO WAY! Neither car came with a frame! That said, the front clips might be interchangeable since they were built on the same platform..but it would be a lot of work, including some welding..

They were both designed for Ford's big block 429 engine..
