GM subframe identification

Hello fellas!

I need some help identifying this GM subframe.

I was told it was out of a Nova, but he was not sure. I know the wheels mean nothing but the aluminum mag wheels that were mounted had "Camaro" center caps.

Do any of you guys have any thoughts or identifiable indicators?

Thanks!

Could be a G body front clip.Check the hub to hub to see how wide,,, If it's 61.5'' it's a Camaro,,60'' it's a Nova and 58'' it's a G body... I think I'm close just pulling them #'s out my head this early..

I will measure the hub to hub width and get back to you.

I have been looking online, but I am not seeing any subframes with those flat (4 bolt) flanges on the front.

I did find a picture online indicating Nova that had those flanges, but it never indicated what year.

Seems like this clip was identified as a '78-'80 Camaro on another thread.

It looks like it is 61" wide. That is measured from the base of the wheel studs with the rotors on. From the flat part where the wheels would touch the rotors.

It also has 11" rotors on it.

It will be going in a 1953 Chevy 1/2 ton truck. I want to find out what it came out of so that I can order an Energy Suspension polyurethane bushing kit for it.

Those darn flanges have me stumped though. I have not seen any Camaro subframes that have them.

OK, so it appears that it would be a 1975-79 Nova, Skylark, Omega or Phoenix subframe.
