You can run a free classified (click at the top of the page to get started) for "Parts Wanted".

G'luck.

I dont think a Monte Carlo heater box will fit a Camaro.........Pretty sure a Nova box will though......

parts swap

The novas are simliar body pieces. I did some rust repairs to the front cowl/ firewall on my 72 nova and the replacement patch was a 69 camaro piece and a perfect match, as were the toe boards on the inside of my car. My supplier was out of the " nova " tagged parts at the time. I was a little concerned before I got them home to compare the "camaro" parts to my car.

The early Camaro and Nova subframes are the same also, as long as it has the back mounted steering box instead of the forward mount. Rear axles are the same. Floors and firewalls are the same. The wiring harnesses....maybe but I can't comfirm that. Someone else may know.

Also FYI I purchased a better condition heater box for my 72 Nova at a U-Pull-It yard, I removed it from a 79 Chevy Concours, which is just a Nova with a name change. It also was a match but for being 7 years newer and more available, not to mention much cheaper than a reproduction. I spent 20 bucks instead of 250.

Why if your restoring a 69 Camaro would you even consider anything but a 69 Camaro heater/AC box?

X2 If you are restoring it then pretty much all the parts a available for you car, No need to hunt around for things that might fit when you can get the parts that will fit. JMO

the reason i asked if its a BBC or a SBC camaro is this...


The heater box is different on a big block car, well at least the heater core and the cover thats in the engine bay, the two nipples for the hoses for the heater core are in the middle not the side, to clear the valve covers of a BBC car.
