Depends on the car. F-bodys and vettes came with aluminum and the rest of the LT1's in Caprices, Impala's etc came with cast iron.

I think you are mistaken. They are B-bodies.

Where did you get D from? The Caprice/Impalla, Fleetwood, and Roadmaster are all on the B body platform.

Caprice, Impala, Roadmaster are b-bodies

Fleetwood is indead a d-body, it has a longer wheelbase(7" in the wheels 13" overall) than the other hence the seperate designation.
