‘71 to ‘70 Chevelle Build
So there’s a junkyard just a few miles down the road from my place that’s got a 71 chevelle (I’m still waiting to hear back to see how much they’re asking), but it’s in rough shape... There’s no interior, it’s sitting on its drums (no tires or wheels), no motor or transmission. (Other than the chassis it’s pretty much just a shell...) The frame seems to be solid, but front drivers side frame horn has been cut right before the front suspension...
I know that from ‘68-‘72 all the two door a-body frames were interchangeable and I would love to build a ‘70 on the existing chassis if it’s possible. I hate to see such a work of art go to waste and I know that it wouldn’t be a cheap or easy endeavor. Would it be worth it to fabricate and weld a new horn onto the frame and dive into the project, or is it something something I should just let sit and go back to mother earth?
I guess you could say just too ambitious and naive, but I’d like to get some opinions from different points of views. Please feel free to ask any questions you have if I’ve missed any big things to look at on the car, and I’ll do my best to answer all of them.
