Looking at a 1968 Olds 98 parts car, boxed frame?

Hi All
I've come across a 1968 Olds 98 4 door hardtop that is complete but in parts car condition. I haven't crawled over it real well yet, but one of the things I found is it appears to have a fully boxed in frame. Was that standard on the Olds 98 of this vintage? Will that interchange with anything else besides the 4 door models? John

The "holiday sedans"(no posts) had fully boxed frames all the way to '76

My 1983 Ninety Eight Regency Brougham (I know it's a much later date) had a fully boxed frame too. Maybe something to do with its weight being close to 5700 lbs.

Thanks for the info guys. I guess the 4 door hardtop does have a pretty long stretch without support. I never stop learning about these cool old cars!

I believe it is time for a chorus of the refrain from Fat Bottomed Girls.
