66 Wildcat

Recommended Posts

I am trying to restore a 66 Wildcat with my nephew. I cant seem to find tubular front control arms, drop spindles, and disc brake conversion, floor pans, trunk pan for this car. I was told any B-body GM would share the same suspension parts but I ordered upper and lower control arms for a 66 impala and they aren't even close. Any leads on where to find this stuff or an accurate interchange?

These parts would have nothing to do with a "restoration".  They are modifications.  You might get good/accurate information further down the page under Buick -  Modified.

Good luck in your search.

Pictures of the car are always appreciated by the members and visitors.

If you wantbto buy off the shelf resto-mod parts, you should not have bought a Buick.  You could do as the 'derelict' guys do and put a new Art Morrison frame under the body. Scarebird makes some brackets for adapting OE disks parts to some chassis.  Dropped spindles?  I think the last I heard of them was for use on cars with king pins.  Want to lower it? - air bags.
