Interchangeable parts?

Raw newbie here, trying to learn on my own by reading and you tubing. Husband suggested a forum, so here I am.

I am currently very slowly restoring a 1969 Bel Air to be my daily driver. My question is, are parts interchangeable between late models Imapa, Caprice and Bel Air? I keep stumbling over what appears to be a reference that the 69 Bel Air is essentially a Caprice in repair manuals and parts seem to refer to impalas. I really could use some advice on this.

This will not be a show car at all. I intend to replace the automatic transmission with a manual in about 4 months.

Just about nothing will interchange from Late Model Chevys, but most parts from other '69's and many parts from '70 will fit. Of course Engines and Transmissions will be the exception as many will bolt right in from a wide range of years.

Interesting that you are switching to a Manual Trans. The hardest parts you will have trouble finding there will be the Clutch and Brake Pedals, but not impossible to find.

Keep us posted on your progress.
