Well after being a Camaro owner for 18 years, Ive decided to finally go old school. I got disappointed at tryint to get my 2010 SS under 3500lbs and keep it stock appearing. So I picked up my 64 nova ss a few months ago. Its a heap and the sun casts a funny shadow on the ground when it hits all the holes in the floor pan, but for a weekend warrior/drag car, shes not too bad. It came straight from the boonies of TN and was pretty rednecked out when I got it. The owner was asking $6500 and I took it home for $5500. I drove down there with a trailer saw the car for 10 minutes and left with an empty trailer. He called me a few minutes later and offered to let her go for $5500.

For starters it had a 1965 front end on the car. It was rattlecanned black, and a shoddy rattlecan job at that. The rear suspension left plenty to be desired and still does, but I straightened it out some and un-rednecked it as much as I can until I get more funding.

The car is a 64 ss coupe with a 383 backed by a glide and a 9". There is no interior other than the dash and a racing seat. Shes a bit rough, but she runs well.

Since I got it, Ive added an alternator and wiring for the lights so I can eventually driver her around. Anyways, I deceided to turn her into a black and white for halloween. So $18.00 later and here she is.


Im having real trouble finding headlight buckets for her though. Thats the main reason she isnt streetable yet. She appears to be a true back yard built race car with literally every possible corner cut to save money. lol
