65 SS rescue
Hi guys, my name is Gordon, I have a 65 SS 396 that I rescued from a lowrider a couple of years ago. I now have the time to actually start working on it, but I have a couple of questions.
The car had hydraulics on it, I took them off and it is on jack stands in my shop. I have a friend who scraps cars for parts and he gave me a rolling frame from a 66 impala sedan, are the frames interchangable? I didn't want to pass it up and let him crush it if they were so I didn't bother checking first. Also , is moving the body onto a new frame going to be extremely tricky? I've done lots and lots of bodywork, suspension, etc, but I have never taken anything off of a frame.
I think this will be worth while if the frames are interchangable because I can clean this frame up and get a nice rolling chassis together as my starting point.
Other than the hyraulics, the only other part that kills me to see is the royal blue diamond pattern headliner with yellow buttons! The body is very straight, needs floor pans, and a few minor details. I look forward to bugging you guys with more experience than me. I'm 27 and this has been my dream car since I was 14.
