In all vehicles except the Camaro and the Nova the frame stands are the same for all engines.

Only the first gen Camaro and the X body Nova required a unique frame stand. This was because the motor was too big to fit in the engine compartment without hitting the steering gear box; so they moved the BBC up and over to clear it with special frame stands.

Those disc brakes and hide-a-way headlights are rare options in 1969 and are worth pulling if you still have the car.
