Awesome write up!
Awesome built. Turned out great.
Glad to hear you are on the mend. Good luck healing up.
Thanks for sharing, I really like those Chevy II's, never had one.
Does the car have the stock front subframe? Are the headers custom-made?
Very nice love the ChevyII !
Actually, the front end was updated by the previous owner to a Speedway axle on a custom subframe. That is one thing that I didn't have to change out!
Headers are a swap meet find, not sure of the brand, but they are for a Chevy II.
cool car, it looks 100x better now than it did when you got it
Awesome car thanks for the posts!
Great looking Nova. I love the first series.
Always liked these Chevy s. I might add, many moons ago it was not that uncommon for the starter to be welded together or tacked in a bind....LOL. Looks like you been doing some nice work there gettin' it back in shape. Good to see it wasn't in too bad a shape. Not that my opinion matters a lot. Always have liked altered vehicles..
Totally sick car. Love the interior. Good work man!
I love your car! You did a fantastic job. What good therapy our cars are, huh?
I still remember sitting in Mickey D's when I was 15 or so and a Chevy II gasser pulls up to the drive thru. It was shaking the tables and glass. Hard to miss! I wanted a gasser ever since and finally am building a '55. I hope it turns out half as cool as yours!
Wow, what a transformation! Car looks great. It still has attitude, but much better manners!
Nothing better then a old race car saved and put back on the street. Very tastefully done.
Love the Chevy II's. A 63 Chevy Nova was the first car I built. And your's is awsome. I like to find me a 63 Nova wagon to fix up.
First of all, thank you for the inspiration.
I know its off topic, and I am not trying to derail your thread, but my son and I just drug this home last weekend. He wants to have it on the road the day he turns 16. Thats about 15 months away.
We have a bit farther to go than you did.
without trying to break any rules here or derail this tribute to a hell of a job a second time.... I might know of a guy with a really sweet '64 wagon he might be willing to part with to help bank roll his sons project, wink wink, nudge nudge
