Using a two-post lift, we literally pulled the body off the frame because some of the body bolts were so rusted in, the mounting tabs pulled free from the body from also being extremely corroded. With the body off, we saw how badly rust had eaten away at the frame underneath the passenger compartment from the top leaking and the winters in Wisconsin and Massachusetts. There were huge holes eaten through, and in one spot a body mount actually ripped out of the frame when the two parts were separated. We've got a brand-new Art Morrison chassis on the way for the Chevelle, and we'll be covering the build of that in a later issue of Super Chevy.
