Got some '62-'65 ChevyII's in the yard. Any of you guys heavy into these cars? I sure dig 'em.
had a 62 four dorr daily driver for a while 230 six 3 on the tree, sold that one. i have a 62 400 series wagon with a 194 six w/powerglide all original where the second owners she onl wearing her second set of bias-ply shoes
I have a 62 conv, had a couple of 62-65 race cars back in the 70's have a 67,70,71
Damn, I love wagons. Have a roof, quarters and doors off a '63 from many years ago. Was thinking about building a wagon from scratch by grafting these parts onto my '65 mordoor. Gotta have a wagon.
Hey Hotrodbuilder, there's a super clean '63 ragtop for sale at my buddies shop in Huntington. Absolutely no rust ever.
Yep, cool cars, as an early teen, my best friends brother had a 67 SS and I just had to have it, they called me one day to buy it and I took a Greyhound bus to get it and drive it home. That was a long time ago and I still own it. I had many 67 SS cars and then got into 65's, had a few of them including a wagon, had a bunch of nos parts. Today I'm nesting a 65 SS and the 67SS. The 65 is slated for a Nickey straight axle subframe next fall/winter, the 67 is in hybernation since its car show days 35 years ago! I might have to wake it up one day soon. Look at the styling of a 56 chevy and notice the styling of the 66-7 Novas, lots of similarities. The 62-5's to me look best with a gasser build. Thanks for the thread, I like them Novas
I have a '63 convert with a 355 SBC/700 R4. It's in the paint shop now getting the color changed from white to Reflex Silver. It's a great little car and a blast to drive.
Got a couple of 63 SS 2dr hardtops. One a full drag car I have built over the last 20+ years and one I just picked up that will probably become a gasser. Put some horsepower in one of these bodys and you will fly.
I love the eary Chevy II's. This is one of the few cars for me that should be the way they were. For example, 62's and 63's should have the 194 in them. You want a V8, get a 64. Havent seen a 4 cyl model in the flesh ever. Always looking for that right 63 Convert to buy. Not one thats done, just a nice driver that needs some work. Well one day..
Yes, we love them here.
Now get one!!
How 'bout more pics of the cars in the yard?
Ya - that second car looks sweet! nice straight chrome.
I got a 63 4 door sitting in my backyard. My daughter is storing it here. says she's going to fix it up some day. looks like I'll be looking for parts and working on it
they can be cool little cars. i had a couple wagons, they look best to me stock but slammed.
I've had 13 of them. Still have my 62 vert that I purchased in 84 for $250. I finished it in 93 and now time for a redo.
I hit the Corvair thread with this Corvair roof on a Nova body, Steve Stanford design. Now I'm hittin' this thread also.
If I had the coin and the time, I'd be building this...bonafide "BADASS"!
My '64 Acadian wagon.
have a 62 im working on...need a radiator core support anyone have one........Larry in ohio
my friend owns this 63 ss convt. I think he wants to sell it
Got some photos coming during the week. Thanks for all the response. I am new here and am blown away how large this board is. All this and Acadians too, wow.
When I was in high school a guy I new had a '62 Nova convertible that he decided to sell. By the time I convinced my parents to let me buy he'd changed his mind and decided to keep it. One that got away--
360hp for Chevy II
Neat little cars. This article always makes me want to put a 327 in my Falcon:
Hey Bigcheese, thanks for the fuelie post. I always heard about this, never seen it in print.
You're welcome. Sorry it's not absolutely complete. I got it from a guy, who got it from a guy, whose wife's brother's girlfriend scanned it, or something like that.
I love them, but I am a bit biased. Here's mine.
my 64 wagon doing tow car duties. goodguys indy
This is a bitchin' idea. Have to put it on the list and start looking for the parts.
How about a narrowed in tubbed 65 chevy II...
Wait for it...
