they don't make replacement floor pans for our cars. my guess would be they are too new. I cut and welded. Someone could make alotta money selling replacements though

1995 Blk SS
1972 Short Box C10
1996 F150 4.9l Straight Six and a 5spd

Since to my knowledge no one yet makes replacement B/D-body floorpans, here is the info I posted a little over a year ago. If you are able to find one of these cars/wagons in your local wrecking yard, you should be able use some of these pans if they are in decent shape.

Coupes/Sedans built on the B platform include:

1976-1985 Buick LeSabre
1971-1981 Pontiac Bonneville
1977-1990 Pontiac Parisienne
1971-1975 Pontiac Catalina
1973-1985 Chevrolet Impala
1971-1976 Oldsmobile 88
1977-1985 Oldsmobile 88
1988-1990 Chevrolet Caprice
1991-1993 Chevrolet Caprice
1994-1996 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
1992-1996 Buick Roadmaster
1994-1996 Chevrolet Impala SS

Station wagons include:

1988-1990 Chevrolet Caprice
1991-1993 Chevrolet Caprice
1994-1996 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
1977-1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser
1991-1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser
1988-1989 Buick Electra Estate
1986-1990 Buick Estate
1991-1996 Buick Roadmaster
-------------------------------------------------
All of these are interchangable with eachother.
Also note:
The forward section of the wagon floor pan should work(front edge of rear seat-forward), but the pan structure under the rear seat I believe migh be smaller(ofcourse you still might be able to use it to combine with yours)

The panel under the rear seat I believe is any wheres from little more than 1/2-3/4's the size of ours, before a wagons panel kicks up for the rear cargo area...

The best bet would be a visual comparison before removing or purchasing the panels.




That was what he posted back in Jan of 07. I've been trying to get Goodmark and Sherman and Associates to start making panels for these cars. Maybe if everyone called these companies or e-mailed them, they would finally take the hint.

71-76 is a different chassis/body. Larger. Our cars are the same as the 77 up B body. This is based on the mid 70s Monte Carlo platform...

Old cars, just like classic rock... 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

I'd say patch'em and hold on to the car till someone comes out with pans. It will happen eventually since these cars are what they are. Mine is rusty on the bottom also. Nothing through but not clean by any means.
