they are about 80% the same. all the suspension and stuff like that is the same, and the frames are interchangeable, also. the main differences are that the Nova has a longer wheelbase-so the driveshaft is longer- and also has a frame around the windows in the doors, unlike the hardtop style used in the camaro without the frame. i think a dash out of a 68 or 69 camaro will fit in a Nova, as well as door panels.
they are the same, but ask a boneyard for a suspension part for a Nova, and also for the same part for a Camaro, and see which one costs more, even tho they are the same.
