wheels this will not work

test fit a wheel vintiques 15-8 396ss wheel
the stock pontiac 15-7 rim fits over the rear disc brakes fine
the wv wheels hit on the inside i was thinking of using those or series 29 rally wheels from them but i think those would hit also

pic looks funny car is on jackstands

427 side markers

bad pics but you get the idea
always liked the look of the older style Chevy marker
in this case 69 camero
the light plugs in the same but you do have to elongate the whole a little

Very Nice!!

i have a 79 that had a 454 and a Muncie in it. the muncie is still there but I blew up the 454 last spring. 350 roller in there now until the 454 gets rebuilt.

anyways, if you want a set of header i have a set off of my 79 they are black flowtechs. PM if your interested, not looking for a lot of cash for em.

keep up the good work, and keep us posted. Big Block 4th gens rock!

I love that idea for the side markers. I may have to steal it if that's ok with you. I already shaved the "Nova" script off the fender and put the '64-'67 V-8 emblem a little lower. This may be a cool touch to finish off the look.
