Regardless....
His so-called "full-frame" car has a sub-frame you can use.  No?

Steve - I think the yard here has 2 '68 V8 Furys and 1 '69 ( I took parts off that one). It's only

15 min from me. Has a bunch of 60's 70's Mopars, at least 20.

Then I'll have to put on my woolies and come up.  I was supposed to help you with those freeze plugs anyway

Stop finding me cars. . .   This was the last one on my list of wants.  I NEED another car like a hole in my head.
 
Have to turn the 59 into cash this spring.

Well there she is.  It's not as bad as I thought it was, but still needs some serious attention.  Nothing I can't handle though. . . .
 
Right now it's under 6" of snow already. . .   Sheeesh

I'm thrilled you got this car.  I truely believed this car should belong to one of us.  Maybe I'm living my life vicariously through others here, but, trust me, this will turn out to be a killer car.

Looks really cool Steve, hope it's all you hoped it would be, what a great project!

I'm always around whenever you want to check out my local "yard".

Wife calls it my PlayPen.

You're not the only one that "fell off the wagon" this w/e... see my other thread!

Yeah sure!  Great candidate for a 440 4 speed.. . . . .
 
Don't worry.  Us engineers can figure out how long it will take to break in half.  I can rig it to blow at 3,000 miles.
 
I have a neat little Magnum planned for this.  The one in Polaraco is going into this.  Since I will have an extra harness. . . . .   A little head porting and a stronger cam. . .  It already runs almost like a 5.9. . . .
 
Skinny little thing will fool the best of them.  OR!  I may put that 360 I got from Weeburn in this and throw the magnum heads on it.  Take that 318 and put that into the 550.  That's actually a better idea because I would have to buy 2 torque converters.  The other way, I just need to balance the flywheel.

Well. . .It's Back!
 
The Frame swap begins.  I'll be posting some pictures of the car before I start to rip it apart tomorrow.
 
Now that I had some time to look over the car, most of the work is in the trunk.  Surprisingly, the car was well taken care of.  The lower pushings have been done, the uppers were too, but the drivers side bushing tunnel is blowing out. 
 
Looks like the trunk is the worst of the damage.  I see some flaking rust in the rear rail, but can't tell if it from the trunk floor or the rail itself.  The floors are perfect, and I saved the floors from the VOAB JIC.  I saved the rear rails and may clip in the rails from behind the wheel back.
 
I'll try to get the pics up later tonight.  I searched for this thread and wanted to bring it up.
 
I am up in the air about the brakes.  I have Snotty's 11" brakes on the new frame already installed.  But I do have a set of 73 Spindles here too.  Either way I have to go with 15" wheels.
