1965 Parisienne 4DR HT front suspension.


Hey. I've been flipping through the forum for a while now, trying to get an answer to this question, will a 65/66 Impala front suspension bolt directly on to my 65 Parisienne 4DR HT with no modifications, more specifically, the upper and lower control arms?

 

I am looking to put a 1 piece aftermarket lower arm, coilovers, and just a tubular upper arm. Got a chance for some really good deals out of the US, only thing is because it's special order, I can't return it. I really dont want to be stuck with some parts I can't use. Everything I read out there says it "should" be the same, but I really want to find someone who has actually bolted them on before, and knows first hand they are identical.

 

I had to guess on floor pans. I learned that since most guys want to "restore" their cars, that they don't want "close" parts, they want exact, so suppliers don't always list all models. But, I can say for sure the goodmark Impala floors pans were 100% identical, down to every line, rib, hole. Trunk pans were the same, but a few inches longer.

Yes, it's 100% the same. Impala/Canadian Pontiac 65-66.

I've done all Global West tubular in my 67. Stock stuff in my 65.

Steering parts change in 67.

Remember...you have a 65 Chevrolet when ordering chassis and driveline parts.

Mention Pontiac and you'll be running in circles.
