Welcome to the site. You're pretty brave. What direction should you be going?

a.) Way, way back in time before all that happened
b.) In the direction of the nearest crusher
c.) To SNS for information and help, so you can show us one of the all-time start-to-finish build threads!

We wanna see it done. Good luck.

Anything is doable. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. What kind of shape was the Chevelle in when you started on it?

You are a brave man but it sounds like you have a great deal of skill based on all of the previous cars that you worked on. Good luck. If you are interested, I bought a fully restored 1967 L79 327 Nova SS (VIN 118) that I am in process of converting to a Restomod. While the engine was built up as an L79, I know that it is not the original (numbers matching) engine. As I tear the car apart, I am selling off major components. I was just about to list the engine and Muncie M21 transmission. I am not looking to get rich, I just want the parts to go to a good home where they can be used in a restoration. Eventually, I will be selling the complete Dog House (brakes, steering, springs, shocks, etc.) If you are interested, please let me know.

Attached is a picture of the engine, transmission and Dog house.

Here is some info on the engine and trans:

1967 Nova SS L79 327 V8 complete Engine and Muncie M21 Transmission for sale
I am selling the complete driveline out of my 1967 Nova SS due to the fact that I am installing a Detroit Speed Suspension and LS Driveline. Before I started tearing the car apart, it ran great (I have video of the car running). The car and all the mechanical parts are in great shape. The car was restored in 2010. It would be a great drivetrain for someone that is restoring an old Nova to original condition. I am looking to sell the entire Driveline but will sell individual components.

Identity Crisis, I have not yet thought about a price for the Doghouse as I want to keep it for reference until I complete my build. I anticipate that it will be about 12 to 18 months before I get my car done. If you can wait that long....make me an offer.
