I race a 73 chevelle and am looking for parts cars and spares. I am wondering what Buick Olds and Pontiacs are built on the same platform.
Thanks

OK, someone told me that Monte Carlo(73-77) suspension parts will interchange too. Is that true? Also how far off would mounting points for front fenders, etc. be from a Cutlass to my chevelle. I would like to put a new body on after this season and I thought maybe go a Cutlass and go with a little bit of a different body style(as if a 73 chevelle if different enough). In my class there is a 74 Chevelle, a couple of big Montes and the rest are Metrics.

73 to 77 monte carlo, cutlass lemans and regal all use the same suspension parts in the frontas the 1973 chevelle. Frame hors are different on the monte and chevelle, with monte being longer (only difference) Similar year camero and el caminos also use the same spindles and lower control arms. Drag links idler arms and pitman arms are the same monte, regal chevelle and cutlass. These are a different cars earlier than 1973 and after 77 (metric stuff from 78 on up).
