The structure is only as strong as the metal it's made of, the factory seam has a flange that's bent and adds some rigidity but if your weld is good the strength will be as good as the sheetmetal itself. The 71 Chevelle is a full framed car so I see no problems with doing a butt weld on the floor anywhere.
