History
Purchased the car all original 4/2/19 with 57,000 original miles on it, I’ve been upgrading it little by little ever since. The car still has the original 194ci engine in it for now, but a lump ported cylinder head and cam have been added from 12Bolt.com, Holley Sniper EFI, and a Clifford Performance 6=8 Kit.
194ci engine with cam and lump ported cylinder head from 12 Bolt, Clifford Performance 6=8 kit, MSD ignition, aluminum radiator, complete Holley Sniper EFI system, Ford 9” rear end with 3.25 gears, 700r4 transmission just added, disc brakes all around, 17” American Racing Torque Thrust 2’s, interior is all original and in great shape, original paint and trim, single flow master with dual outlets. New engine, interior, and paint are in the future hopefully. 😂

Hi Jason,
Great Nova! I was really stunned that it was so similar to my '63 build in so many ways - even the color. I don't know how to correspond with you outside of this showcase format, but I'd like to get a conversation going with you somehow. Let me know if you are interested. I'm particularly interested in getting my 194 with lump port head to run better. I've attached a couple of pics. I'm just now switching from 700R4 to Muncie M20. Original interior. Strong sound system. If I can private message you somehow and/or we could get an email correspondence we might be able to share some ideas.
Mike
