I have only had dreadnought size steel string and never felt comfortable about it

I love my nylon string classical guitar;just normal size one with 650mm scale length

What kind of body sizes(0, 00, 000, etc) of steel string guitar have similar size of classical guitar? (including depth)

My Taylor Grand Concert 12 fret is pretty close in size to my classical except for the narrower neck width.

I have a Recording King ROS-06 FFE it's probably what you are looking for and has a slot head, I love it and the neck width is right and sounds great (and it won't break you to buy)

IIRC, the body of the LV-19 Special Vine Edition guitar I owned had overall dimensions similar to that of a typical dreadnought, 16" (lower bout width) x 20" (overall body length) x 5" (depth at end block of the body). It does have a shape like that of a typical classical guitar but its body is larger.

I concur. In fact, here is a picture of my Taylor Grand Concert 322ce 12-fret and my flamenco guitar side by side.

Gibson F25 "Folksinger"?

14.5 inch lower bout, 2 inch nut width, and flat non-radiused fretboard

Gibson's LG and B series (including the Folksinger shown above) are very close to classical in outline. There's also the Seagull / Simon & Patrick Folk size that is very similar.

I just picked up this Eastman which is in the ballpark of what you're talking about. Great sounding guitar and I love the smaller size. AC708CE

I'm pretty sure the Larrivee L series, while similar in shape, are quite a bit bigger that a standard classical. I have a Gibson LG, it's exactly classical size and shape, very comfortable guitar. You could look into a Parlour too, even smaller that a classical
