Subframe identification

I need some help identifying which year camaro (or nova) subframe I have in my 1953 pontiac. Any help would be great. I've posted some pics also. Also I would like to know if it is worth cleaning up all the original suspension parts or just buying a new kit? I want my car to be magnificent when done, and the kits are reasonable. Thanks for any advice, this is first body off restore if you couldn't tell

If it's a Nova, it's '75-'79. If it's a Camaro, it's '70-'81. Older ones have the steering linkage behind the axle centerline. Might measure the outer wheel bearings, since they got bigger in '79, if I'm not mistaken.

Thank you for the info. I think it is a 70-81 camaro after looking at parts. Plus the 305 that was in it is from a late 70's camaro.

79 Camaro?

I have a pic of the front of the frame on my 79 Camaro in my project journal and it looks like that's it.
