    Picked up a set of seats for one of my project cars and I think I have narrowed them down to 1966. The bottoms look like they may have a prevision for power. I am trying to confirm make before putting a rare seat in my 55 were I would be happy with a mass produced seat. These seat tilt to the...

    I was a teenager in the 70s, and we didn't quite grasp how fully awesome these cars were. Friend of mine had a black 63 for a little while. Believe we cracked the block "washing" the engine when it was still hot. Instead of rebuilding, we got a Corvette. Yeah, these babies were a little cheaper...

    Hello, I am new to this site. I have a 1973 2 Door Custom. It is 100% original except wear items like belts, battery, shocks, wiper blades (I still have the crome ones)........ It is Dark Green in color with a Green Interior. It is a plain Jane version. My grandfather purchased it new and he...
  5. Electrical
    On my 68, I'm slowly changing parts that I know are not original or even original/authentic looking and this week I wanted to replace the combination horn relay/key buzzer. I looked around and found a reproduction that has the stamped cover lid that, from what I've seen, looks correct and is...

    Cant find backing plates for front drums anywhere. I would like to keep everything original as much as possible. The car has been sitting a while and the front brakes locked up and cant get the shoes out so I can at least move it around the yard. Maybe I'm missing something trying to get them...

    I notice all the repop hood spears for 1st generation list 1962-1964. Does 1965 have a unique spear? Is it longer? Different shape? My original 65 spear has 6 attachment points and seems to look like the repop. Unfortunately the chrome though not pitting, does not look so good. Thanks in advance...

    Hi, I just found a 69 L78 nova, docs and numbers, that I'm restoring and would love to restore the car to as it rolled off the assembly line, so my question is, is their any website, book or anything that I can references for the correct stickers, chalk markings, and paint markings; on the...

    I have a 67 ss orig 4spd car (11837), non numbers matching. I'm getting ready to tear down for body and paint (by no means a pile, just want it to be nice and clean), but have been seriously considering doing a T-56 magnum and ls build, is it sacrilege to cut it up? My head says no, but my...

    Here is a 67 ss (4spd) that should interest a few people lookin for nice car. I considered it myself, but since I want a CW front clip and built motor (my neighbor is a hot rod engine building legend! Seriously :D), it would be a shame and quite stupid to ruin an all original car (Haven't...

  16. 3rd Generation Chevy II/Nova's
    Hey guys and girls, I'm trying to get to know my car better from tip to stern. I ordered the book a week ago, an excruciatingly long time to wait (also the amount of time I've had the car and waiting to get the knowledge to match the tools). I've looked through the site and seen some jumbled...

    Having a problem getting my carb to run smooth. It is a model 7042984 for 1972 inline 250 (California model) Does anybody know the difference between the California model and the #7042014 which was the Monojet for cars with A/T except for Calif. For some reason my original carb, #7042984, is...

    Hello Everybody, I am having trouble with the original carb on my 1972 inline 250. The car was originally equipped with the model #7042984 Monojet for California cars in 1972. I can not locate an exact replacement. Anyone got one for sale? I see a model #7042014 that was the Monojet for...

    Hi, Does any one know off hand what type of hose clamps would have been original to a 63? Can they still be purchased anywhere? Also I had my air cleaner powder coated and am thinking I might want to put on some reproduction decals. However I am not sure which ones I would need and where...
