    I like the Nova/Chevy II wagons 62'-65'. But, if I could find a 64' or 65 ' Comet I'd grab it and do it up Dyno Don Nicholson style. I had a 63' Chevy II/Nova wagon with a built 327, Powerglide with a 4500 RPM stall converter, and 4.88:1 posi from the full size cars put into the stock 4 bolt axle rear. FAST street car, but the brakes were major drawback. It was pretty much a sleeper, and had rams horn exhaust manifolds and full quiet exhaust. Butch/56sedandelivery.

    It depends on the year of the car.

    110% Falcon... The nova wagon never came in a 2 door. 4 doors have two to many doors...

    I'll vote for Falcon. I like the 2 doors. 63-65 are the most popular years.

    My pick is a nova, don't get me wrong I like wagons of any make or model.
    my father drove a 62 falcon wagon for several years 6 cyl. 3-speed on the
    column (one of my learning to drive cars) Just partial to GM, My dd is Malibu
    wagon & my son drives one also!! Thanks, Rick:D

    I have always liked the novas
    but i would get a falcon because you dont see as many falcons,
    and the round bodys are cool looking

    not a great pic, but there's my vote.

    been torn apart for body and paint work for about two years now while it waits it's turn. i think it may actually be next on the list.

    Nova as it is easier to put a v8 in.Also chevy v8 you can get the most hp
    with the least amount of mods and cheaper to hop up.
