Can anyone with a 69-72 chevelle help me

I have been all over the internet trying to find the factory dimensions and weight for a 1970 chevelle malibu 350, and i cant find it. All i really want to know is the same info they give out for new cars that they had back then (ie. curb weight, F:R weight ratio, wheelbase, Front/Rear track, length, and width). If anyone knows where to get this info, or if anyone has it, please tell me cause this is driving me nuts . If anybody in here might just know the track (center of front driver tire to center of front pass. tire / center of rear driver tire to center of rear pass. tire) then that would seriously help me out. I think i might have found what the wheelbase is, and what the track is for the rear, but i want to make sure everything is correct and square. Or if anyone in here has a 69-72 chevelle i would greatly appreciate it if they could measure theirs as well (just track).

Thanks,
classic

I suggest buying a factory manual for your Chevelle. It will have all of the specifications and a LOT of good info.

Dealers in Hemmings Motor News offer them for sale.......and other old car publications do also......

Yeah thats what i think im gonna have to do, i just wish those Haynes books gave more detailed info. I might be able to find something out at work since i work for AutoZone now, but who knows. You know what i was in the public library one time and they have service manuals and all kinds of books on older cars, and a copy machine, i think im gonna stop by there today.

thanks,
classic

Oh i know, i was just sayin that they suck (thats all we have up at work). And i wouldnt suggest going to the public libray, the chilton books dont have anything either, I guess ill have to get one of the chevy books for myself. Does anybody have a suggestion/preference as to where i should go online to look for a 97-04 corvette front k-member? Ive talked to all the local junkyards and been to some websites, but i just wanna get the best deal i can (since its gonna be an expensive part anyway) and i like to keep my options open.

Thanks,
classic
