Is there a advantage to use a 68-72 chevelle front clip on a mod seams like you are seeing more of this frame/chassis

The only thing I have heard from a few people is that it is hard to find some of the suspension components (ie spindles) for them. I am not sure, I have just heard some people saying that.

Most people run the pinto spindle with this frame, which is now available aftermarket. I think the main advantage over metric is that they have a little wider stance up front, and are overall a lighter frame. I see a lot of guys prefer the 64-67 models if you can find them.

In stock or modified form the older 64-72 chevelle frame is and has always been the best frame to use. Most builders do not use the stock spindles on this frame, the impala and pinto are the 2 most common used spindles. Rear % is better and overall car weight is lighter than some of the other frames being used like mid and fullsize metric gm frames and the crown vic fords. Also the lower a arms can be hard to find but there is still plenty of the frames and parts still left, just not at the local down the road yards.

New lower a-frames for the early Chevelles are available now from Southwest Speed.
