  1. Frame work and restoration....

    Restoration Corner
    I'm in the process of building a chassis form the ground up. I'm working on the frame now and just made templates for boxing the C channels on my 64SS.

    Body Shop

My son wrecked our 4 door 67 car and bent the frame at the mounts under the firewall (it was rusted at the mounts). I'm having a really tough time finding the frame for a 4 door...
