hey folks,
I have a 78 El camino and I just picked up a 87 cutlass that has complete dual exhaust, good gas tank and a bunch of other parts. frame is just rotten out of her
I was just curious if that stuff should bolt right up, or who if anyone knows whats actually interchangeable between g body cars, is the frame the same on a cutlass and el camino? I
anything is helpful. thanks :You_Rock:

Lk Camino,
Hi! To start, the gas tank won't work, the frames are different (rear frame horns are different and the Camino has a 9" longer wheelbase). Because of the longer wheelbase, the exhaust system would need reworking.
The front and rear suspensions are the same, dashes can be exchanged as well as seats, door panels, heater/AC (I think).
If I've misled you I'm sure someone will make it right for you.

The exhaust will need extended 8-10 inches in front of the muffler inlet.

oldtinsmith seems to have covered most of the other points.
