I bought a 64 GTO convertible in April 2010 out of Missouri. If you're interested you can read about it here:
I've been driving if for the last couple of summers. One issue I did notice was the frame had a few soft spots on it. I've been looking for a replacement frame and about a month ago I found this advertised locally and made a deal.
The reason for the purchase was this was sitting under it.
The frame has been blasted and coated, all new front suspension, new brakes, brake lines, fuel line.......... and best of all, a 3:23 Posi rear end.
I figured I'd start a thread detailing the frame swap.
To make things a little more interesting, I'm converting the car from automatic to 4 speed in the process as well as likely going to front disc brakes and a dual reservoir master cylinder. I dropped off the M-21 I have for it at the tranny shop today for them to go over it. If anyone has a floor shift column they want to get rid of, let me know.
I'm parting out the Skylark so if anyone needs any convertible parts among virtually anything else you can think of...... PM me.
I'll try to keep this updated as work progresses. Wish me luck
