Fuel line

the fuel line is 3/8" with no return line. I have had the car a few years still
searching for the broadcast sheet. this car has some strange options no
exterior trim and yet bumper guards I wish had the original big block!!

Guess ya can't have EVERYTHING!!! That is a seriously cool ride tho, great color and love the interior. That radio and the speakers are neat too...

Definitely need to put the SS 5 spoke wheels on that puppy or maybe some dog dishers... :yes:

great car man, cant wait to see what you do with it.

Thanks!!

It will be my sons car he will be turning years 9 old at the end of Dec. he is already a big nova freak!! I do like the dog dish caps I have them on my
63 hardtop. luckily they are easier to locate than first gen caps and less $$
it is a pretty solid car some rust in both quarters mint floors and trunk.
not sure if he will be ready for a big block we will have to wait and see:devil:

Daily driver

the gal that I purchased the nova from became second owner in 1974 she drove this car is a daily driver roughly 60 miles per day. she said the big
block was killing her on gas so she had it swapped out. someone got a
sweet deal. the car still retains it's born with rear end, trans and bellhousing,
and original alternator go figure

70 BB Nova

Very cool...looks like a high horse version...the 3/8 fuel line and the tach appears to be the 6k version...

I see the cowl tag is October..early build..

***note the metal t-clips holding the radiator flap..most 70's have the plastic buttons on the BB cars...perhaps this about the time the transistion took place??

what is the code on the axle tube??

good luck with this...wilma
