Sorry, I didn't say, I guess I am a little beside myself with this problem. I have a 61 not much other then the rear end is original. I have it all apart and the radiator support is out and easily accessible. I have thought of drilling down above the existing holes but there is still the plate the bolts go through. Any help or insight will be much appreciated.
Thanks

I'm more versed in C-2 details, so I'll defer this to my C-1 friends. Dennis

Here is some picture's of the radiator support I'm talking about and on one pic I placed a couple of washers to indicate where I am thing of drilling the holes.

Still don't understand why you need to drill the holes - there are no bolts through the radiator into the frame on any Corvette.

Its a radiator "core" support and I also have no clue what you are doing - please explain of get yourself a '61 AIM Assembly Instruction Manual before you Bubba something up irretrievably... Page 136 has what you need...

I have a 57 and assumed that my core support was the same as yours and was wondering why you are having a oroblem, but after looking, my bolts come right out as the bottom is an open trough.

If you look for new/repro 61 core supports online, you'll see that they all come with the bolts/studs in place. It appears to be a welded assembly.

Yes it is. Thanks for the input. Just another problem to overcome. Looks like I'm on uncharted ground, again.
