Everything should just bolt right up.

Sorry but it won't bolt right up. Chevelle's are grouped by the followong years.
1964-1967
1968-1972
1973-1977
The '64-'67 are the shortest in width. The '68-'72 are about a inch wider but have the same mounting points. The '73-'77 are the widest and have different upper mount location(about 2" wider)and the lower mounts are different. Shocks don't mount in the same location. Anything is possible but it won't bolt in. Sorry.

OK, so the '68-'72 Chevelles are all direct interchanges. What other GM rears will also bolt straight up?

You are Welcome Odgers. I was hoping to sell the 75 to you. It is better to find out for sure. It is probably not worth the hassle if you have a 68-72 available.
Happy Racing!
