1963 Chevrolet Nova SS
I bought this Nova SS about five years ago. This
rebuild was started about year 2000 by the previous
owner. He was 3 years into it when he fell sick and
died. The car was by then nearly road ready. The
family held onto it for 13 years and decided to sell ( to
me ) for college funds for the son. They car is an
excellent build. Builder used many excellent condition
used parts and ( I assume ) new parts as needed. The
engine comes from a vehicle of 1975. Garage kept at
all times. When I bought this ,I took it to professional
mechanics for help with fuel and ignition systems,
transmission service and inspection, rear leaf springs,
and finally refinishing the interior ( paint ). Nova is now
road ready and show worthy. It is garage kept and
never driven in bad weather. Has clear title. I do not
have knowledge of any accidents. I have to assume
this Nova is not a numbers matching car. The original
engine would have been a 194c.i.d. " High thrift ".
Transmission is most likely the correct unit. While this
car may be considered a clone...It is the correct set-up
for this model year. As far as I can tell; the v.i.n. info
indicates a true SS model. 1963 Nova SS was only a
trim package at the time.
