Question 4dr frame swap on 67

Hello all

Anyone tell me if a 4dr sedan frame will swap out exactly for a 4dr Sport / hardtop?

Welcome to the team.


Considering all the 1967 full size cars from coupe, convertible, wagon, and sedan all have the same wheel base and track width it would probably be most likely all the frames are very similar in design if not exactly the same. The convertibles and wagons may have a beefed up frame with more mounting points, but that would be the only differences I would anticipate. I believe if you get a fisher body manual you will see all the dimensions on the frame and it will highlight any differences for the different body styles, but GM liked to keep things cross compatible across as many cars as possible.
