Frame for 1965 Hardtop

New Member here, been reading for a few days and have found this forum to be very friendly and informative.

I just picked up a 1965 GTO Basket Case and the frame is shot so I'm looking for another frame that will fit.

This project is too far gone to be a "restoration" so its going to be a restomod. Body and interior as original as possible, but on any suitable frame or rolling chassis that will fit with minor modifications. If anyone has a line on where I can get a frame, or a cross reference of something newer/more common that will work or can be modified, I would really appreciate it.

Also, My car came with many extra parts that I will be posting for sale soon.

Replacement frame:

Art Morrison is doing some beautiful work, they changed the profile on A-body frames to provide a bit more ground clearance. I don't have any experience with their A body unit although their Camaro frame was a dream to work with.

Thank You for the lead! I was hoping to find a repairable original frame, but a modern rolling chassis may be the only way I can go.
