Now that I have that established, what is the bare frame weight compared to a metric impala weight. Any ideas.

Its irrelevant a leaf spring car is a better car than any 4 link oem suspension car.

if you can run a nova or seville do it youll be happy.

the rear rails bend easy when hit hard but they also cut of and repair easy, as well as usually can just be pulled back.

a impala, and nova I would say would be close, nova lighter though, the seville looks to have more metal up front than a nova for body parts hood etc..

So the seville frames are full frames w/ a nova type of front end. I just looking at this because of the geometry that the nova has which is the best gm has for all stock.

does this mean that standard nova lowers for a metric car could be found on the 71-6 seville?

no they are not full frame, a seville and nova are unibody cars and leaf spring rear. like a camaro with a longer wheel base.

if they are the same as the later 70's nova lowers than no it will not be the lowers for the metric cars you want the older than that ones like late 60's early 70's or something like that.
