Has any body had any dealings with a one piece floor for a 66 /67 chevelle? I seen some on ebay the first ive seen for this year models and also the trunk one piece is available. I ve seen and used the split full length floors, just curious im about to replace mine.

I bought both the floor and trunk pan at Carlisle.The fit and trials of installation I couldn't tell you about but...Small details like one of the crossmembers need to have hole enlarged the access captured nut for body mount bolt and the seatbelt anchors included don't exactly look factory but appear fairly stout.All told given the amount of welding it could save and the amount of skill involved to install these small details probably won't be a cause for real concern.The floor had all braces and inner rockers as one piece,didn't have a lot of flex,but are probably of thinner guage than original.The trunk and floor both have a flange to mate up under package tray to tie both together to appear seamless.If I could find a bodyshop in MD that could do the install in a timely and correct fashion I would be happy to give my opinions or any other observations.My car needs full floors,braces,and inner rockers so I figured I'd why not try the one piece.Probably didn't address all of your concerns,but thats about all I can add at this time.

Keep in mind the one piece WILL NOT include the toeboard. If your in the boat of needing to replace an entire floor chances are sections of your toeboards are toast as well. That being said, I replaced my floors with the 2 piece, fit was as good as I expected it would be from previous experience; but likely would have used a 1 piece if it was available at the time. 1 piece trunk floor for sure is what I'm going with, glad they came out with it in time before I began welding on the 7 piece I recently sold. Good luck in your endeavors

Do they have a one piece floor pan for the 66-67 models? I didn't know that, who carries them as I'm very interested.

i was told that its safer to just use the two piec becuase when you cut the whole floor of you can knock the body out of whack i personally dont know thats just here say
