Help with 65-70 wheel base length
I posted this in the "brake and suspension" forum yesterday and didn't get any response, so I thought I'd try here.
I have a 1967 2 door hardtop and I'm toying with the idea of doing some serious suspension mods. In order to do this, I'm contemplating swapping out the frame from another "B" body donor car to which I'll do the mods.
Now I'm on the lookout for a donor car, but I need a car with the same wheel base and therein lies my problem. I've been searching on the net looking for the differences in wheelbase lengths of the 2 door, 4 door, station wagons, etc, and all I can find is 119". I'm sure there's a difference between models, but I'm not finding it.
So, my questions are:
1. What's the various wheel base lengths between the different models?
2. I've heard there's some differences between the 65 and 66 frames to create issues with the 67-70 models, can someone explain?
3. Is my assumption correct that another "B" body car from the other 3 makes would be an acceptable candidate for a donor?
Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated,
