Re: '67 ss

Good luck with the car. Looks like a decent project. Not a pos as another poster posted. I like 67 SS's. Perfect candidate for your BB project.

Re: '67 ss

The initial purchase price ($9000), of a car like this is an after thought considering how much money, time and effort will be spent getting it presentable.

I must say, it sure cleaned up nice. The car sitting in your driveway looks like a different animal than the one in the initial ad pics.

Re: '67 ss

I think it's cool that you bought it! Obviously you knew what you were signing up for and it doesn't sounds like that much rust scares you like it would scare me.

Looked like the floors were pretty bad in the pics. How does the rest of the sheet metal look?

Is the frame that bad too? I guess it depends on how easy it is to find a donor frame, but it might actually cost you less time to mend this one. This is assuming that a donor frame would need at least some work too.

Keep posting updates and good luck with the project

Re: '67 ss

The front floors and toe boards need replaced, firewall is clean, rear floors are good, needs quarters, trunk floor, probably a hood and deck lid. I don't think the frame is too bad, won't know till the body's off. I actually had an offer to sell it, not sure about that though. I told him if I did sell, I'd keep the 12 bolt for another car, he was good with that. I'm guessing he's wants to put a 9" in it.

I also like the people that put "I know what its worth" in their ads, when apparently (based on asking prices), they really have no clue what its really worth...


As for the frame interchange (I know that was a while ago), 1967 Chevelle frames differ from 1966 and earlier, in that they have a different rear spring pocket. You just need to make sure you buy/use rear springs for the year of the chassis...

As mentioned, any 66/67 "Chevelle" frame will bolt in, with the exception of the wagon and El Camino... Both of those frames need to be shortened about 3", BUT, all the extra length is in the rear overhang... All the suspension pickup points are the same, and even the body mounts behind the rear tires... The rear-most body mount locations need to be modified...

Once you go RAT, you never go back...

Re: '67 ss

Change of plans, sold the 67 SS over the weekend to a pro touring guy, put it's 12 bolt under my GTO for more tire clearance. Worked out well.
