Re: a frame conversion

Although the 69 and 70 Camaros share the same Drive Train, Electrics and Steering Column the two cars are all together different. The 67-69 Camaro share the same Sub Frame as the 68-74 Nova.

Here's one on Graig List for a very fair price: http://tucson.craigslist.org/pts/1427090005.html

Re: a frame conversion

70/81 is a front steer car meaning the steering arms/linkage is in front of the subframe crossmember and 67/69 is a rear steer. I also believe the mounting holes for the body are different measurements.
