  I recall we had a similar discussing a few years ago.  At that time there 
were some suggested terms that might be more applicable.  But, I can't 
recall them at the moment.

  I think to some people "Frame Off" means that everything attached to the 
FRAME (yea, I know, actually a "unibody" in the case of a Tiger) is OFF the 
car.  Given that most restored cars were older (and had separate frames) the 
phrase became common.  As unibody type cars became restorable the term 
carried over, - though essentially inaccurate.
