Looks like you got your work cut out for you. I like how they did the cowl tags over there. By the way your car isn't missing it's sway bar only station wagons and v8 cars would have came with one. Dd

DD, thanks for the info! I still will put one on if I can get it since it will benefit the handling.

John, thanks! Indeed I've been around at PT.com for about 9 years....that site has cost me loads of money

I hope I can do the Nova a bit cheaper
(but I've allready seen too much nice stuff on this site )

Well, progress on the Nova project is slow....
I have bought some door hinge repair kits so I can start on that and I decided what direction to go for now.

I will keep the 194 I6 and have bought a T5 transmission out of a 86ish firebird, I also got one from a 85 camaro which has the correct bellhousing.
Ít will be a mix and match deal and I just have to take out the motor and see how it all will go together.

at least it will be a lot more fun than the powerglide

the T5 has a steep 1st gear and an overdrive, so quick "launches" and smooth highway cruising is what I hopefully will get.

This will be a budget build (what I think now) but it must end as a reliable car for daily use.

As soon as I can actually work on it in the garage I will make an update on my page again.

I now first have some work on the Camaro, have to get it ready for a 2 day show with around 50.000 visitors for which I was invited.

This is a cool project. I wouldnt mind doing a 4 door like this one. I like the original 194 with a T5 should be a fun combo ansd get decent gas milage. But ill say it still wont beat a BBC or a LS

well, I do want one I know.....still busey now cleaning parts, I am looking for parts for a front disk brake conversion, keeping it 4 bolt!

since parts are expensive to ship I think I have a cheaper solution with parts I can get locally... some modern cars have a 4x114.3 boltcircle, if I can get disks that will fit the 4 bolt hubs...(remove the drum parts) and make a bracket for the calipers I should get it to work and will not have to modify the rear axle bolt pattern.
