Tube Frame for a 72 Nova

As I stated in my intro I have been laying with the idea of getting my 72 Nova going again. But I don't want to just redo it. Here is my plan and a lot of this is based off weather or not the frame is do able.

I want to replace the Sub frame with a full custom tube frame. I am going to ladder bar the frame with round tubing. I figured I could cut out and smooth the unibody rear frame with sheet metal and build tube mounting brackets to mount the body to the frame. I have started working on the CAD chassis already but if someone already builds one I may just go that route.

ANy help would be great. I did search for Nova Tube Frame but nohting useful came up.

Most folks hang the body over a race chassis.
