I have a 63 S2 alpine that needs a complete rear. I can buy a 67 alpine locally but I'm wondering how much of the of the front and rear parts will interchange and bolt up?
Can anyone enlighten me?

Are you asking for sheet metal or mechanical?

No sheet metal , I was referring to the rear drive housing .

Danny, lots of Alpine Guys convert the early series front using the late series IV & V including the rear a suspensions. I believe you would be pleased with the "newer"...

thanks. The shock on the 67 are the more modern looking style. The ones on the 63 are strange looking things?

I guess, when going to the 67 rear housing , I'll try to go to the modern shocks in the car by drilling holes in the body to mount the top ends.

Best that way. You should be able to get some measurements while removing the rear!
