any ideas where to find a G body 78 to 87 yo use as donor body build project. The car needs to be salt zone free. 78-87 Buick Regal, 78-83 Malibu, 78-88 Monte Carlo, 78-88 Cutlass Supreme.

I would expect some flood cars from Houston would surface, unless they got thrown away.

I have a 1983 GP. It's rust free but was cut on to lighten for drag racing. What parts do you need?

(Why didn't you include the PONTIAC G-body in your list? :O )

Thought I did. Looking for total floor and frame, complete with full suspension, axles, front steering, brakes etc... It's a major project.

There are poor cars, picked apart ones. Not seeing good ones do far. If I look away from the Grand Prix or Olds 88, my be a better chance?

Sounds interesting, what are your plans?

Looking at possible designs to build the Tempest. It's still up in the air. Have some door and body work ahead, then start constructing rear steel work for a 57 axle, or go pro touring with the better more upgradeble G body underpinnings. I am networking with some shops that have customed similar not carbon copy vehicles.

Can you post some pics? It might liven the place up a bit...

I was considering a floor chasis project. Some well experiencedcustom shops have some G class custom setups that far outperform factory stuff, I just need to come up with a lot of money. I do like a combo where streetability and handling plus goid track performance can be designed in. Don't see a lot if these Tempests getting that treatment, most rear HP handling for straight track driving.
