I am looking to replace the frame of a 65' El Camino. What other A-Body frames could be used? I know that El Camino and Station Wagons have the same overall length. Is the wheel base the same for sedans? If so, could I lengthen the sedan frame for the rear bumper? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I think you have to use a El Camino or a wagon frame because they are boxed, most sedan frames are not boxed, the convertable frame is boxed but I don't know if it will work.

Enganeer, The station wagon frames are not boxed like the El Camino and Convertible frames. You will need a boxed frame to do it right. 64elcamino, a regular poster on this site has a spare elky frame(64ithink) that he said he was willing to part with, but he may have already let it go cause someone was interested in it. Find one of his posts and e-mail him. He is in Arizona, which may be too far for you. Hope this helps.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten.

I still have it, but as Leo said I'm in AZ. Not impossible to ship. If interested I can get some shipping quotes.
