  • '66 Nova Wagon

    I have a '66 Nova Wagon that I'm trying to setup as a daily driver. When I bought it, I was told "fly in, drive it anywhere', but we all know how that works out in most cases....

    I've been spending a ton of time on it lately and I hope to start driving it regularly within the next couple of weeks.

    Anyway, here's a pic:



    More pics and info to come...

      thanks.

      It was originally a 283/pg car, but the previous owner installed a 350/200r4 combo right before I bought it.

                I was lusting after one of those for a short period of time back in the late 90's. That is a great canvas to work from, the sky is the limit. Good Luck with it!

                  The previous owner did a lot of crappy work, so I've been trying to fix his mistakes.



                  Here's a partial list of what I've done:
                  • made cribbing boxes - was able to get the rockers are about 22" off of the ground for steering box replacement
                  • steering box replaced
                  • converted to manual steering
                  • exhaust finished off - my first shot at doing tailpipes and I'm very happy
                  • engine bay cleaned up and painted (as well as I could without removing the engine and other items.
                  • touch up paint on engine
                  • steering column and steering wheel cleaned up painted





                  ... and some pics...
