1964 Nova Wagon Project Car


Below you will find some pictures of my 1964 Chevy II Station Wagon. This was my parents first family car. It was my first car in highschool and I graduated in 1989 from highschool driving it. On to college, still driving it. Even today, up to when we began cutting it up, I was still driving it on weekends.


We have finished the installation of the Mustang II front suspension with Standard Rack & Pinion Steering but we are going to redo it with another crossmember and put a good basepan on it so we wont have to cut it out. I wasn't planning on so much horsepower so now we have to regroup and begin again. Just another set-back. NO PROBLEM! That is what makes this so much fun! Eventually the heater motor and power brakes system will have to be removed to fit the engine in the car with the valve covers intact. And lastly we are going to cut out the existing firewall to set the engine back a bit for weight transfer.

New Pictures: Of the backhalf job ** Are Finally Here !!!!!!



StationWagon1 Note where we had to cut out the crossmember to get the big block at the correct height to make motor mounts.
*****
StationWagon2 Another view of the notch we cut out of the crossmember. You can see the piece of metal we put in on an angle(not welded yet) to give it more support but not take up the full thickness of the old crossmember.
*****
StationWagon3 This is actually a 427cid mill we are using as a dummy to cut back on weight during the fabrication of the suspension. The 350 Turbo Transmission is also empty as you can see.
