Hi all, I have had a beautiful old 1963 Fairlane since 1987 (my very first car) and I have been planning a resto for some time. While taking it apart to review where I need to focus, I have come across a lot of holes and rust outs underneath. So many so, that I would have to replace the floor pan and a big chunk of chassis to get it anywhere near safe.

My question for today is, can I realistically swap the car onto a newer RWD chassis (complete with drive train etc)? Any suggestions as to what would be close in size? I would like to keep it original looking, but maybe update it to fuel injection, coils suspension, or whatever.

I have access to a complete shop so that isn't a big deal, and time is no object. I have a lot of replacement parts already and if I only had to pick up some kind of vehicle for the donor, then that isn't too bad.....Anyone try something like this before?
