I need to box in a coupe frame from a 65 Chevelle to meet the specs of a 65 Conv. Chevelle. Does anyone know where I can obtain the specs? Has anyone attempted this conversion? I have already verified that the body mounts are the same.

The conv and elky use two extra mounts at the front of the frame where it turns in before the front suspension.

Leo, Thanks! I'll be sure to check it out. I hope to have my frame boxed in and converted within a couple of weeks.

I have a 68-72 ragtop frame sitting in my garage if you want to take a look at it.

Never be afraid to try something new, an amateur built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.
