I own a 1966 Chevelle2 door hardtop ss, I need a better frame because the place I stored it in was not ideal. I purchased a 1965 Olds 442 body and frame very clean sold the body saved the frame for me. After 8 or 10 people told me they were the same frames back then Now I am finding out the frames are different. Does any body know if so and can this 65 frame be modified?

I would have assumed they would have been the same. What have you found to be different ? What happened to the Chevelle frame in storage ?

The frames may not be exactly the same, but they should interchange. What's different? 65 442s do have different mounting tabs for the rear suspension. Also, the frame horns may be different.
