There were two types of chassis for those cars, the Beetle (VW) and Chevette (GM). A Beetle chassis will have a "backbone" down the center of the car on the inside, the Chevy won't have that. Post photos and we can confirm. But a word of advice: if you don't even know where to start with the car, get rid of it and save yourself headaches later.
