1970 Chevy Chevelle Malibu Project - Project XS Chevelle, Part Two-Rustification Restoration Photo Gallery
Here's one of our repaired body mounts primered and ready for reattachment to the body. The A-body ragtops used a special mount that featured an extra body bushing/cushion for support since there wasn't a roof structure to bolster rigidity. The inner cushion doesn't have a bolt going through it like the neighboring mount; it just helped support the body's weight and was held in by pressure. If all goes well, in our next installment we'll be test fitting the Chevelle to its new Art Morrison chassis, finalizing position of the main floor pan assembly, and be welding everything together so we can start work on the trunk area.
