Longneck Rear Subframe with Swaybar Mounts?


Recommended Posts

Did any of the early 2002/1600's that came with longneck differentials have rear swaybars? My `67 doesn't have one, but I'd like to eventually add one. I realize that I could have the mounts cut from a later subframe and trailing arms and have them welded into the 1600's, but it would be easier to find a subframe with the mounts already installed.

Secondarily, how many of you have a 1600 or 2002 with a longneck differential?

Shortneck 1600s have sway bar mounts, but no sway bars. I have a 67 longneck 1600 with no rear mounts and a 68 longneck 1600 that has them.

No warranty on originality of parts. It was a hot setup in the day to swap the 2002 rear subframe with everything on it into a 1600, getting bigger brakes, a swaybar, and a longer rear ratio all at once. To accompany, of course, the transplanted 2002 motor.
