Hey everyone,

Know you guys can help. I have a 55 2dr sedan. Bought the car on ebay and the seller had a extra frame with no damage.

Are all models (2dr, 4dr, wagon, etc) frames the same? Is there a ID number or other things to look for on the frames to tell what year/model frame I have?

Guess I can measure them both to make sure they are the same. Know that the convertable frame has the X-style brace.

Thanks for your time and look forward to some feedback, Jeff in SC

The '55 & '56 are the same except the rear spring hangers are different and there is a small gusset in the rear corners on the '56. Bodies can swap between the two years. All are the same except convertible which you noted. I think the front horns are different on the '57 and so they are not interchangeable with the other two years.
My '56 is on a '55 frame.
I understand the vin is stamped into the frame under the drivers seat (on top) but I didn't see it.
