  • Swapping bodies - frames 47-52

    Can you swap a 47 49 50 body to a 51 52 frame if you put a 51-52 front end on it? I.E. coupe to coupe or sedan to sedan.

    Yes, the bodies are the basically same 47-52. The trunk floor will vary as some had the tire laying flat and others had it standing up. The gas tanks will also vary due to the trunk floor differences.

      Swap bodies, Yeah sure.
      With no [or very minor] modification to frame or body ? Well, yeah ?
      IF, you have the correct combination of pieces. UMM, yeah. probably ?
      What are the correct combination of pieces ?
      HMMM
      Hope someone with a lot of experience chimes in here soon.
      Otherwise.
