Ok. So all the susspention bits will go right into the 74, wich is like 200# lighter, has no rust, or sunroof.
That would be my suggestion. The 74 is super solid if I remember correctly. Not saying the 75 isnt nice. But sunroofs are a huge consern for me every time.

Ok. So if the motor isnt put together I say swap it all into the 74, front suspention and rear suspention and build the motor.
If the motor is put together... then I guess I would button it up and run it. Meanwhile polishing up the other chassi. The 74 has a h145. Good for 70ish #s or torque, the 75 has an h150 good for about 90#s of torque
The 74 front struts springs and brakes are 1200 units. Realy light but tiny brakes.
The 75 has slightly better stuff.
But the big deal is body construction. The 74 is alittle bit more flexi, but alot lighter than the 75. 200# or so. And thats like 10+ free horse power, and its easier on the diff an h150 would stand up good to the lz for a bit. The sectret would be small tires. The smaller the better. Light wheels. Could be super crazy.

I know 10 hp or so doesnt seem like much,
But think of it this way, that 10hp is being used up in the drivetrain to just move the thing, putting strain on all those components to get it done. Since the rear end is rated for around what your putting to it, might wanna make it as easy on that thing as possible.

You can always swap the central pumpkin from the h150 into the h145 I know on the 1200 it needs a spacer, can't remember on the B210 one if it does or not, may need to see the 1200 wiki. However the B210 H145 uses the 1200 style driveshaft flange, so you need the original or a 1200 driveshaft.

Also loose the shitty parkbench bumpers and you shave another ~100 plus pounds off. The later 77-78 bumpers bolt right on, look better (tighter to the body) and are much much lighter (still kinda heavy compared to 1200 or 510 bumpers though).

The b 210 h145 is exactly like the 1200 unit. So you would need a 2mm spacer and 2 gaskets. But you can just swap the whole rear end right in. Very quick.

Yeah the 74 bumpers are tucked good but the inner core is cast iron or some shit. Super heavy. Id just strp the cores out of the 74 ones then there super light. And tuck good.

Use the 74 . It does not have the CAT hump in the floor. fitting seats are much easier

Engine bay is cleaner too as engine bay relay box isn't until 75, also no fuel tank return, and the interior trim is just slightly different.

The weight and CAT hump really are the biggest deals.

Never thought of that... I like it. I just used the 78's because I liked the chrome look better, it was lighter, and I got a really nice set super cheap. The mounting points being further into the bumper itself was just a bonus. The bumper absorbers on the 74-75 are shorter to compensate for that different mounting points. Pulls it in an extra 2 inches or so but still lets the bumper function. The parkbench bumpers do work good though, definitely saved my car's ass (literally) at least once due to this stupid women rearending me at a stop sign in her honda while talking on the phone. It hit hard and put a dent in the bumper shaped like the license plate but no damage to my car. She ended up just taking off really quick.

That sucks. I removed my bumper since I fucked it up, but I drilled little holes in the bumper shocks and slid them in.

My friend got rear ended in his 210, by a 00 Camry. He got out of his car, looked at the perfectly straight number, looked at the camrys bumper in the ground, and said, have a nice day.
