No.

Now that I have said that, how about what kind of car is it? A few cars, if I remember correctly, had same wheel base (and floor pans) but came in two or four door models, but not too many. Don't tell me it's an AMC,...

After reading your post again, I believe what you should be most concerned about is the wheel base of the car for "free". If it is what you want/need, then build your own sheet metal. I guess I am more confused with why the floor pan is an issue?

The floor pan should be the same. Since you're going to be riviting on a new skin, I wouldn't think it would matter much any way. The wheel base on all metrics is 108 inches 2 or 4 door.

thanx guys, the reason i asked about the floor pan is because i knew the WB was the same, i just didnt know if maybe the 4door pan was stretched. and if a monte body would fit over the top of it.

when ya get thru using the 4 door body and do the engineerin you come out with something that looks like a MONTIBU. They're the ones everyone looks at and wonders "Now just what is that thing?"

Hey hoozier Down here in the deep south they actually pay you to come get them out of the yard now. They block the view to the hiway from the couch on the porch, next to the washing machine.
