    Anyone know if the rocker panels on a convertible are strengthened, like on A bodies?
    Thank you...

    Don't about A bodies. The front of rear spring hangers are reinforced like hemi cars.

      In A bodies, there is 1/4 inch plate in the rockers, runs the length, cant tell unless you cut out a set, wondering about the 66 B Body.....

      I would say yes. I know for a fact that 68 & 69 b bodies have the rocker reinforcement because I’ve cut into both years of those convertibles. I’m sure they ran those reinforcements from 66-70
