Need help puting a 74 Nova together

I just bought a 74 Nova roller. It needs a drive shaft and radiator among many other things.

What length is a Nova drive shaft and is there any other GM vehicles that share the same drive shaft i could pull from the junk yard.

What are the dimensions of the stock radiator and what other vehicle share the same size. I'm piecing together a Hot Rod from junk yard parts.

depending on what rear diff is in the car, the driveshaft will be either 51 1/2 (8.5 rear) or 52 1/2" long (7.5 rear).
as far as a radiator is concerned, i bought 1 for each of my venturas and both turned out to be aluminum. only around 120 bucks. small price to pay for something new with a guarantee. i wouldnt take a chance on a used rad especially with no warranty, because if it leaks, your s.o.l.

Same as the Olds Omega, Buick Apollo, Pontiac Ventura, and the 67-69 Camaros'. 70-80's Camaros' should also work.

For The radiator..you have to put 19 X 26 unles you put the battery to the trunk to fit a bigger one like the one on an 79 camaro (19 X 31)
