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.
