    Looks like there's nothing even close on an early Nova to bind the spacer! I was looking for an early Nova to do as a BBC powered gasser, but they want crazy money around here for rusted crap. I ended up finding a '63 Falcon for $500, and built it with my 464 BBC instead. Not the Nova I wanted, but close enough.

    Great idea on the ball joint spacers. on the other chevy's these only work for travel not hieight, but the way they have the coil on top, it seems like they were made for these cars to raise. Great job!!

    I had a hard time to find a 65 or older Nova over here too.
    Alot of them are pure race cars with modern chassies and no way near street legal.
    This one is sold new here in Sweden and probably had a straight six and 3 speed from the beginning.

    I was impressed with how much it raised the front,and super easy to install.
    Just got to get a new frontend alignment.

    Looking good. The dual redline front runners are epic.
