year one sells them new for an arm and a leg but I wouldnt pay that for one. All Novas 69-74 are compatable and the others that use that body style(appolo, omega, buick special) 69 to 72 chevelles also use them. You also see them on ebay from time to time dirt cheap. Drum spindles are easy to come by its the disk break spindles that are a bitch. Good luck, Danny

I didn't build it, I didn't break it so lighten up, I'm just trying to fix it

i have been told many times that 64-72 chevelles and clones are also interchangeable...on a side note, i hear you can make drum spindles into disc spindle with a simple machining operation. is this true?

rfine67, drop me an e-mail and I'll send you one for free. Yes I have seen a drum spindle been converted to disc by machining around a 1/4" I think from the top mounting post.
