Frame for a 1970 Skylark
probably any "a" body(cutlass/skylark/lemans/chevelle), from that era, i think the 70's had front stear suspension, maybe the '71 did too, they changed it to rear stear around then, not sure. you didn't mention if yours was a two or four door. not sure if they were doing the split wheel base(112"/116"), with the "a" bodies then, probably were. the "a" body was introduced in like '64, i'd look for something a little later, maybe '68 or '69, because by then then had more or less universialized things like transmissions and rear differentials. i know in '73 they underwent a major overhaul, not heard of anyone using the frame/chassis from a post '72 on a older one.
...wait a minute, it's the other way around. it was rear stear and they changed it to front.

Rear steering in old GM cars? I don't think so. The cost to repair the frame would all depend on the level of damage. I would replace it before I would repair major damage. Any frame from a 'A' body GM car from 68 - 72 should work provided the wheel base is the same. There were 3 wheel bases, 112" 116" and 121" for the wagons. This is not definitive so measure and compare before buying another frame.
