I'm not sure if Plymouth is the odd one in this, but Dodge and Chrysler should be the same

I agree. . . But only from 71 up.

There's some mis information in there

I was about to get excited about this... I have what I feel is more rust in my front subframe than I can "convert" with Eastwood's rust converter. I was thinking of looking for a suitable replacement, at some point, and this would widen the field of prospects.

Failing that, I already need to improve my welding skills to handle some of the bodywork, so I may just learn to weld in some additional support.
 
or maybe I'll win the lottery, and have it all done profesionally... Hmmm... Not likely.
 
I'll cross that bridge when I get there....

I know 71 Plymouths were 120" wheel base in 71, and my Polara is 122"  But I thought they were all the same in 72 or 73

I measured the front sub frames from my parts cars 69 and 71 300's and then compared them to the one in my 68 wagon, and I believe, as stated in that link, that they would physically bolt in fine.  Will all the body panels, bumper brackets etc still go on with no hassle.....I doubt it.  But if you have a little skill then I think this might be a simple solution to a bigger problem.

N0 Brian.  71 had isolators on the frame.  The holes are allot bigger on the 71 subs.  Can it be done?  Yes with the production of some aluminum hocky pucks.  The second thing about the 71's is the frame sits about 1 1/2" lower than it's earlier equal models POLARACO2010-10-11 20:03:46
