1965-again- "Cost-N-Me"

Starting out with another 65 Nova this time I have gone full frame...an RS Full chassis. Here is the start of my 65 Nova "Lessons Learned"

First I started to brace the nova body for full floor removal.

Very Nice i see a bunch of the Chevelle guys in the Chicago area have their chassis-frame its very nice and $$ are you going to reuse and of your OLD setup or was it all bent up in the accident ?

If you getting rid of the Cowl / firewall i would be interested in buying the Toe board area not sure how good it is
?

another 65 coming back......love it

WOW!

That is a heck of a set-up. I have not seen the full frame for a first gen Nova, but man that looks slick. I have had mine up in the air long enough to wonder if there was any need for creating a more complete frame under it and now...feel fingers slipping farther and farther from stock build. Can't wait to follow along with this project. Good luck, and thank you for the pictures of the bracing the front, that is what I have to do after I put some of the pieces of mine back together so those pics are helpful.

Floor out body on

Removing the back floor of the car and added more bracing.





Welded the last braces between hinges, and ready to cut.










Floor is out!!




Thought I would see what the chassis looked like before I install the new Triple adjustable Ridetech coil overs.




Sits pretty low



Putting body on chassis for first time.












Checking how everything fits back together. Had to cut bottom on core support off to get fenders to sit at the right height.




That's it for now!

Great to see you jumped back in after the crash. Gives me incentive to get back on mine. Can't wait to see updates. You are a craftsman at work. Good luck
