I've got a Chevy II that I built into an altered wheelbase drag car.
I want a nova wagon ... soooo bad
I had one, liked it, but life got in the way.
Always wanted another, but I would put a Ford 289 in it. Reason: the Chevy II is SUCH a Falcon clone, that a Ford engine fits better, I bet. Seems like the Chevy engineers forgot that Chevy V8s have a rear sump...
The chevyII v8 had a center sump pick-up just like the L6s did.

292 L6 Powered '63 Nova
same here ('66 wagon, v8, column shift 200r4). just moved the mess to my driveway a couple of weeks ago.
I've posted a bunch of the nova wagon pics I've taken over the last few years here: TheLongroofSociety.com
Be warned though, lots of the wagons in SoCal are 66/67.
Here is my 62 which was the first car I ever owned. I sold it and about 16 years later I found it in Florida and bought it back. Black top is the first time I owned it and the trailer is how it is now.
Fresh from the paint shoppe this week.
Flattened Baby Blue w/ Cadillac Pearl roof
Used to be tinted primer & the original white, now she looks the same from 30 feet away but now has quality paint.
The pearl is amazing looking!
Bought at the Super Chevy show at Maple Grove, Pa. Was looking for 56 Chevy stuff and bought this instead. It still roams in the eastern Pa area under different ownership.
Here are a bunch of pics from yesterday:
CPP Nova Day 2012
very cool, thank you. 57 4dr gasser snuck in,eh? panel style wagon was different to see..., not many made? or custom?
I'm in the process of getting my 63 back on the road after sitting for 7 years ..
The guy with the 57 usually brings a 65. It's the cream/green colored one pictured here:
The pics from that day can be seen here: CPP Nova Day, 2011
The panel style wagon is a custom. They also didn't make 2 door wagons.
jbon64, FYI your wagon was for auction on eBay recently. It still looks great. I wonder what it went for?
Ours made the cover of one national mag and one Northern Calif Cruzin news for Feb.. Kinda cool for our work done.
I love the wagons. I used to see a beautiful red one down at the Dade City, FL car show.
Congrats Bill on the mag coverage....Greg SNS CGM.
My 64 Acadian...looks better with the whitewall tires on it.
Here are some pics of my '63 Nova sports coupe.
I bought it 17 years ago off of the lady who had imported it into New Zealand in '67. It's had around a 8 year rebuild involving 3 trips to the US to buy parts.
Runs '64 327/365HP crate engine, along with kitted glide, and '64 10 bolt 3.73 Posi (to get 5 lug pattern). Also has discs up front.
It's been down to the last nut and bolt - only thing that didn't come out of the shell was the main loom.
Just so's you know it wasn't mint to start with
My 62 Chevy II. Rebuild in progress.
My daughters 64 wagon. This was her first car we bought for her 16th birthday although we didn't have it finished and on the road until right after her 17th birthday.
I want to find a wagon to tow the race car with and for a summer cruiser.
Mine is coming together slowly, but surely. Another month and it should be ready to repaint the body (leaving the roof as is).
Here's mine car(s)...
Gotta love them Chevy II's.......nice looking cars for sure.....
This is my 64SS with a 250 L6,This is when it had the dual 4s on it But it runs with a 3x4 tunnle ram intake.Nice wrinkle in the side wall and the front end Almost? off the ground.
hi guys NOT TRYING TO HIJACK THIS THREAD but i need a "nova " scattershield /prefer lakewood with the throw-out fork at an angle ! thanks mike
How about the 63 Nova Fast backs? I belive only 3 ever made.
It is my understanding ( and I had a article/ad still can't find it.) That the fastbacks were a Fiber glass kit you could buy.
