My '63 4dr Nova 400 is bone stock (White/ Aqua) and I've been thinking about restoring it back to original. But... I see a lot of great looking first Gen Novas and wondering what a non stock, maybe mild or wild 4 door might be like. Paint, motor, wheels etc.

Does anyone have any pics?

I think the four doors are cool. They are easier to find unmodified and are definatly cheaper than a 2 door. I think mine would be on the wild end of your scale. I built a whole new frame for it, rear 4-link from a 70 Impala, Narrowed 12 bolt, 26x12.5 MT Sportmans, Cragar SS rims, CPP disc brake kit, Poly bushings, and a whole bunch of good stuff to come. With my recently aquired 427 4 bolt block come a little ol' 496. :D I guess i need to update my website to show some upgrades pics. If you have any questions, please ask away.

Great! Nice pics, thank you.
I've toyed with the idea of painting it not original, this is just what I need, keep it coming.

You are truly evil!!!

As for the prostreet s10 its still in the planning stages. It doesnt help when I take the moordoor out for a cruise. Today I took the grocery getter to get groceries. So now Im wavering in what I want. tetter-totter goes my head. I still would like to get more done to the moordoor before I sell it. So im learning about s10's and planning stuff for the nova. Im sure the moordoor will survive this year.

That Yellow 63 4 door is just plain AWESOME !

Got any more pics of that one ? ( or others,:)

We were originally going to go with a bright yellow (77 Corvette) on our own 63 4 door, but decided to be more subdued and go with mitsubishi (sorry) Durango Copper Pearl.
But, since it's not painted yet, might rethink, lol

Nah unfortunately that is my only pic of the yellow 4 door. I liked the wheels on it but he wouldn't entertain an offer on them. If anyone has a set let me know and I might give ya some change for them. ray.
I'd think those 4 lug aluminum slots would not be too hard to find.

As far as I know,same bolt pattern as early Mustang / Falcon (or Corvair), so I imagine many sets are out there someplace.

I do have a set of American Racing 14 x 6 , 4 lug wheels, new in the boxes, if anyone's interested - got em for our 63, but we might go to 5 lug, since we'd like to add the disc brakes.

Nah there not hard to find. I got a set in my garage. Just sitting there too. Not being used at all. Collecting dust...

Actually I think they are hard to find.

Blurry pic of my ´64 (not taken by me :) )


No, it´s definetly not wild and nothing special on it, just a normal 4door ChevyII. Hoping to get it repainted this summer, and with new paint, chrome bumpers, trim etc. it will start looking like a car again...
