If you want to swap the body on to another frame I would forget it. New cars do not have a frame. What exactly do you want to accomplish?

I want to make a modern car with a Galaxie 500 Vert body.... all the modern stuff, such as anti lock brakes and modern motor and computer from a donor car or truck....


You can upgrade the engine, transmission and brakes without a new frame. The anti lock brakes might be an issue though. You could spend a 100 grand upgrading the car and when you were done it would be worth a quarter of that. It is better to keep it stock and upgrade to disk brakes and electronic ignition on the engine. You can even install fuel injection if you like.

Well... I’m well beyond that.... I’ve done all that.... not really about what it’s worth in the end but what I want to drive.... I’m in the middle of a full frame off resto mod.... this answers my question very well though.... thanks
