    So it appears that companies make new stamped metal subframes for 67-69 camaro’s, and 69-72 Novas, but nobody makes a second generation subframe. Why is that?

    Check Speedtech. Schwartz makes a complete frame which can be installed with no cutting. My best to Beau and Luke.

    Welcome to NastyZ28
    1st Gen Camaro and Nova used the same chassis so it's the same subframe. My guess there probably isn't enough demand for stock replacement 2nd Gen subframes. You can find used ones

    Funny how popular they were for awhile to put under other cars. Lots of Tri 5 Chevys ended up with them and the dirt track guys liked them too.

    Thanks everyone! Went ahead and returned the new one and worked on the original. Pretty amazing what you can do with a grinder, and hours of time.
