Has anyone ever tried this swap? C3 Corvette IRS into a Nova, Vega or simular small GM car? I need to find out info on the frame measurements, width & so forth. Thinking that a mid to late 70's smogger vette would be the same with as the Nova.

THis might be an interesting project, since I currently have only frame rails back there right now. Width is set at 28 1/4" (2x3 .083 wall steel). No suspension at this time.

Ive been told that those c3 vette IRS are weak and cant take alot of abuse. Ive never owned one, but i know people used to modify a 12 bolt setup and stuff it in.

THis won't be a high HP application - 350-375 at most, SBC. Not the BBB Stage 1 for the '64.

Anyone got measurements or a rotten rolling vette frame?
