New Nova in Los Angeles

Hello,

I've been lurking on the boards for some time now, mostly looking at everybody's pictures.

I finally got myself a nova to start working on. It's a 1963 400 series sports coupe with an inline 6. Good solid bones and runs but everything is 50 years old and will be slowly replaced or upgraded.

I'm looking forward to learning more from everybody and sharing my experiences as I progree through my build.


Thanks in advance for any help and experience people can share with me.

JR

It's going to be a cruiser. My immediate plans are to replace the worn out springs, upgrade to 5-lug, disc brake conversion, and replace the stock control arms. I figure those upgrades should improve the driving experience significantly.

I'm up near Pasadena. Thanks for the offer, I'm always down to get some ideas and suggestions. The more I plan what I want the more options I see are available.
