That it does. If I had been any older than I am I definitely would've not gone the frame off route. Once is enough for me!

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

The Frame is looking good. Where did you get that replacement rear brace for the frame?

Picked it up off of SS396 or OPG, one of the two (Can't recall).

Went really great. Didn't take more than a day to chop out the old one and install the new one.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm doing my 66 frame and the rear brace on mine looks pretty bad also. I was going to try and straiten it, but not if a replacement is available.

I had thought about doing that in the first place as well, but when the rest of the frame was straightened I realized it really wasn't worth it. Plenty of knowledge to get it done on these forums too!

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

How do you plan to mount the transmission crossmember since you completely boxed the frame rails front to rear?

AH someone asked the grand ol' question that I jumped too quickly on.

Going to have a plate made up that will be mated to the frame with 4 nutserts and a rosette well in the center that I can position when I get the motor and transmission in place for proper measurements. It would've been stock and not and issue but I am going with a 200-4R instead.

The plate will be in an L type fashion that can let the transmission crossmember sit on top of and bolt like your typical C-Channel frame.

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

This is what I did, the holes are slightly elongated along with the center mount. It can be moved both ways and can be raised with spacers. This was before powdercoat.

As people have told me, it's like eating an elephant, just take it one bite at a time man. Keep improving yourself, but don't let the project sit for too long.

I was wondering the same thing myself. I decided to change my 65 Impala from a TH350 to a TH400, and only when I got about half way into it did I realize the Impala has a boxed frame, which complicated matters quite a bit
