    We bought a house that has 2 bathrooms with wall hung toilets. The house was built in 1965 and I'm not sure if they were from that time, although I wouldn't be surprised if they were.
    Anyway, we are remodeling one of the bathrooms (gutted to the studs) and only replacing the toilet in the other one.

    If I don't want to do much additional plumbing work, are my only options to go with either the American Standard Glenwall, Crane Rexmont or Gerber Maxwell Wall Hung?

    If I had it my way, I'd install floor mount models (I just like the way they look better and are also less expensive), but it seems like a lot of plumbing work to adapt the bathroom to a floor mount toilet.

    I don't want to keep the toilets there now because they are an ugly brown color and I want white.

    What would be the least expensive option to my problem?

    Any help appreciated. (Obviously, I am not a plumber)

    For 1965 wall hung replacements, I like to use the American Standard Glenwall and the Gerber Maxwell Wall Hung,
    I sell quite a few, they work well and they look nice.

    I wouldn't bother with the other two mentioned.

    No matter what you do adjusting carrier to fit new toilet is probaly not
    posible glenwalls are OK installed a few. You may need a new carrier to
    accomadate any wall hung W/C.

    pic added - do I have a carrier?

    Thanks for the help so far.
    Now, just to educate me a little more - I've attached a pic of the stripped out bathroom so you can see the piping.

    If I go with the Glenwall, do I still need a new carrier? Or is the carrier for the Glenwall the tank?

    Could I install one of the European style wall hung toilets that don't have a tank showing?

    It looks like in this instance, you'll need an even deeper wall since your vent stack is directly behind where the toilet was - basically, now you have NO available depth in the wall.
