Old Chevelle? Good idea. I saw this one awhile back getting exhaust. Gave me serious wood. It had to be a frame off restore as it was immaculate in every respect. I mean perfect everywhere. Wish I coulda got a look from the top down at it.
Yeah that body style just looks so slick rolling down the road at any speed. The extra wheelbase would help it feel more stable at speed too. The engine bay is probably a little easier to fit a couple of decent sized turbos and some good sized 6 bolt heads too haha.

A Datsun 510 is boxy, light, but not remotely American muscle. A death box with high hp.

I want to build a 510 or a Volvo 240 for reasons unknown.
I had a friend that built a Datsun 510 BRE clone with a turbo 4 cylinder engine that looked like a hoot to drive. Longer wheelbase helps for high speed stability, but there is a limit to what is enjoyable to drive around town and what will fit comfortably in the garage.
