What A Body Frames will fit a 1967 Buick GS 400?

I have a 1967 Buick GS 400 that I am restoring. While prepping the frame I discovered it needs some work. I am looking for another frame instead of repairing it. What other year A body Frames will fit on the 67 GS 400? I have been told that 64-67 frames for GM A Bodys are all the same. Is that true?

For sure 66-67 A-body frames are the same..Cutlas/442, Chevelle/SS, Tempest/GTO, Buick Special/GS. Different rear ends/brakes on some, but frames are basically the same..

Not absolutely positive, but the Chevelle frames may be a bit short in the rear.

An ElCamino or Wagon frame would be the same.

Again---not positive, but I thing the BOP versions of the passenger cars had a longer overhang after the rear.

Can measure for sure next weekend.
My 66 Elky is sitting next to a 66 GTO, and if those measure the same, then the Chevelle passenger car frame will be too short.
