Marple am putting an 78 Camaro front clip under my 73 Nova have been a little slow due to my operation but i know it will work. New a guy who put a Camaro front clip under his 69 Chevelle so i dont see why it wont work you will probably have to tie it in with 2x2x3 tubing possibly. Eddie

Yes it can be done, and it is actually really easy. I have a friend that has this done to his car. If you werent specifically looking for it, you wouldnt see it.

coolness.rumor has it the last two track champions at my track did this.theere were very few cars that could hang with em.(the 415 motors didnt hurt but...)i figure besides a nova this is the next best thing to running a camaro.

Why not use a metric caprice clip? It is more stock appearing and has basically the same parts as a camaro! Plus replacement parts are easyier to find.
