Will a 69-75 Body fit on a 76 and up frame.
anything will fit anything just depends on how much work you wanna do but they will fit you'll just need to redo that 3rd body mount(rear edge of door) since the floor difference.
So are you saying you just have to take off those body mounts from the frame and move it. (Remove the rivets and drill new holes and bolt it back on)
it's a difference in heigth. the new floor 76+ is shorter, foot well for the rear passenger.
A 69-72 body will not fit without some modifications, those are the first gen's. The 73-77 bodies will bolt right up to the '76 frame. When swapping second gen bodies the big year to remember is '78. '78 was the year the rear footwell was intro'd, along with the correspondingly different frame (in that area)
You can make the early second gen body fit on a later frame, you just need to create one set of body mounts in the footwel area. A post '78 body on an early frame is a ton harder though.
