I have a '64 Nova 4dr with a 6cyl, I've named her "Matilda". I've purchasedwhat seems to be a 67 327 that was used in a 68 passenger car. The code stamped on the rear of the block shows it to be 275hp from the factory. The engine was built professionally as a spare race engine for a '72 Corvette. Problem is that I only have a partial build list and the builder has since retired and moved out of the area. Matilda originally had 13" rims when I purchased her. Those of course will be replaced with 14" rims.. I am planning on using a 12 bolt for the rear end. I am undecided on the tranny right now. I am leaning towards a turbo 350. I will definitely be speaking to others with more knowledge about trannies than myself before I make that decision. Like I said, the car is in her stall in my garage. I just started on the suspension. I will also do the steering and the brakes right now. As I stated, I didn't build the engine so I want to make sure the car will handle and stop prior to actually swapping out the motor. I've looked around my area and can't find anyone to dyno an engine out of the vehicle which means I will have no idea what I am putting out for HP until the build is done and I can get the car on a dyno. The original plan was to turn it into a sleeper. Not so sure I will be able to call it a sleeper when it is all put together. No matter what, it's gonna be a fun ride. Here's what she looked like when I first purchased her.
