i have a 77 frame from an auto car for $350. pm if interested. i know that it will work for a 69 but not sure what you would have to do to get the bumpers etc to bolt on.

The last 2 feet needs to be grafted from the 69 frame and the body mounts are a different height. for a direct bolt in stick to a 68-72 frame

Depends on how original you want to keep the car. A 73 or 74 frame can work, but you will need to change to rubber or poly body mounts. A 74 frame would require a bit of modification to the rear of the frame but not extensive cutting/welding like 75-up frames. I found a 73 frame for my 72 by posting a WTB on the forum so keep your hopes up that someone will come up with something. Chrome bumper frames aren't cheap though.
