It's easier to switch from mono leaf to multi leaf since the pockets that the springs set in on the rear end for the mono leaf are more shallow. To switch from multi leaf to mono leaf a spacer would have to be added.

A friend and I went through this on my '78 Nova when I switched to a mono leaf rear end from his '68 Nova. The rear ends of the 1st Gen. Camaro's and the "68 and up Nova's are the same width and use the same springs.

boothboy The Race!! Bentley Boys!!

The Gurney Nutting Coupé is nicknamed "The Blue Train" after the famous French train,"Le Train Bleu" which it was credited to have beaten in 1930 in a race between Côte d’Azur to Calais France. Ah! But the Gurney Nutting coach was not back from the coach builder, Gurney Nutting, in time for that race. The body was still under construction. The owner, Woolfe Barnardo, also had a Mulliner body awaiting another Straight -Six Bentley chassis and it is said that the Mulliner body was fitted to the Blue Train chassis and this was the combination that actually won the Race!

They are still trying to figure it out.

Too Many Projects The multi leaf springs were on 250 hp 327 and all the big block cars too. Nothing special about it being a Z because it had multi leafs...
The 6 cylinders and some 2 barrel 327/pg cars still used the single leaf.
