    Looking for a piece I can weld in. See pic. It needs to be a bit bigger than this. Anyone parting out a J body that is willing to cut me out a section? This is the passenger side. I bought this car that way and I have no idea why it was cut because there is no rust anywhere. Send me a price with shipping to 63010. Or call/Text Keith 314-540-3782. or keithfoy@att.net

    looks like the redneck way to get rid of the catalytic converter

    I think the front floor pan on a J-Body is the same as a M-Body,Can anyone confirm this.

    M-body is the same, that is definitely the catalytic converter hump that is missing. You could fab up a patch and run seat tracks for a more common body style.

    So there was some weird hump there for the catalytic converter? Guess a piece of smooth metal would be better than that.

    Thanks... Well I guess I know now why the hole is there. I still need some stock buckets to recover. I have some nice seats , but they need brackets made to make them fit the floor.
