    does anyone have pictures to post of early olds 303/324 in a stock model a frame?
    32 frame? engine mounts? recessed firewalls? steering boxes? exhaust setups? thanks in advance...

    I'd have to put a tape on it to be sure but I think it worked out to be same as stock A
    that frame got a T body on it too so the firewall sits further back than an A

    Looking good, what are you using for a transmission. I just picked up a 303 olds with a manual flywheel. Looking into putting it in my 33" Plymouth
