    Recently bought a 1977 Spitfire from Ohio and drove back to Georgia. Bad mechanic in pre-purchase failed to see frame rust.  Now I have a hole in the frame. Local guy has a 70 spitfire rust free. Can the 70 frame be put on the 77 body?

    I thought they were the same but may have minor rear end differences. I only have experience with MK1 and Mk2 chassis’. If you’re taking the body off and onto another chassis you will possibly find alignment issues with the bonnet depending on if the front-end has had any accidents (i.e. brackets for front can move). Depending on how bad the rust is I’d consider repairing the original.
