Finally! Starting on my 64SS!

Just wanted to share pictures of my Nova, had this car over 10 years and am finally able to do it the way I have always wanted!

Got the TCI front clip last weekend from Fed Ex, and am probably going to get the 4-link for the rear too! Ideally with a 9" posi unit. Really want those 8" wides in the back! I'm going to keep the non-factory 327 and T-10, add a vintage air kit to ward off the desert heat. I'm thinking gunmetal grey Americans to quasi-match my Chevelle.

I included a pic of the badge, I was able to decode that it is a real SS, but couldn't figure out the ACC line. I'm pretty sure it's a factory 4 speed. I followed the link in other posts, but did not see a "G" option... Interesting...

It's currently factory Goldwood yellow, but I plan on installing new door skins and quarters, and going with Tuxedo black! Kind of a resto mod theme! The pictures don't show it, but the car is full of mud in the doors quarters... Definitely want to get rid of the nasty vinyl top!

The previous owner raced the car alot, notice the fenderwell headers!

Anyways, enjoy!

Looks like a fun project -I think the A/C is a good idea. My tuxedo black 64SS is like getting into a hibachi in the summer - even with dead paint!

Nice start!

40447 designates a 64 SS, but you might want to check out the placement of the emblems...looks like they wandered a bit:

Oh you noticed! The previous owner ground off all the mounting screws on the emblems, filled in th holes, and used double sided tape!

The fender emblem on the passenger's side was actually mounted correctly, nice huh!

Pretty much going to have to get all new emblems!

It looks like the hood diecast sitting on the roof is from a '63. The rear one is correct though.

That might explain why the holes in the hood don't quite line up with the studs in the diecast!

Does anyone have a pic of a 64 piece?

Keep the vinal top, thats what sets your car apart from the rest. The vinal top, the moldings, etc. will make the car worth more money in the future because most people remove them due to the extra cost of restoring it correctly.
