Here's a link from facebook. Causing a lot of stir. I figure that if anyone has ever heard of this that it would be someone on this site. Sounds like an amazing find if it is true.
Without any Dealer paperwork or documentation, its just a nice story. The page from the book that they posted was full of inaccuracies (a V6 '63 Nova??).There isn't enough information or pictures to decide anything about this car. The info doesn't say anything about a dealer install. Even if it was, it wouldn't be a numbers matching car. As Frank mentions, the dash cluster is '65. Not enough evidence to make any kind of decision on this one.
It's well known that dealer V/8 conversion kits were available for 1962 and 1963 Chevy IIs. Nobody knows how many were done by dealers and nobody knows how many were done in backyards. Chevrolet does not report any factory V/8 Chevy IIs produced in 1962. A document purported to be an official GM report, showed three V/8 Chevy IIs were built in 1963, all 283s and one a 4 speed. These may have been factory builds for internal use, as no documented V/8 1963 Chevy IIs have ever surfaced in the consumer market.Here is what someone posted on the site as a way of proof of this. It states the dealers offered conversion kits but does that mean the dealer installed them? Big difference between the dealer offering the conversion and actually doing the conversion.
