    Probably at least 3-4 grand. Those b body frames are only for the 65-70 models though.

    I'm sure they could acomodate a later B body if you were ready to pony up the cash. From what I read the A body is the same

    frame almost as our Bs. If you read the up on the design it says GM just laid the new B Bodies ib to the old A body frames to save

    weight and in essence made a better handling and miserly car. 5-600lbs on average weight savings from the earlier tanks. I also read

    that GM hadn't really changed this frame from 64' to 96' all that much lol. Bless GM's heart!
