I got new rear wheel wells for the '67 and they have the later squared up shock tower mounts instead of the ones that kind of look like a triangle. Is this going to be a problem? '67 is a one year deal with the new wheel well but the old shock tower mount.

Looks like you're the guinea pig.

I could only find images of pre 67 and 68 and up. They look a lot different. Is the contour the same, is the mount for the body in the same place?

Yeah, '67 uses the new set up with the old mount. I think the mount is in the same spot so I'll just try it.

I think the body mount is going to have to be lowered.

Okay, I'll check it out. I'll probably have to do some altering.
