I am in the process of changing engines, installing air ride rear and AC.

Ken, your picture link did not work. I'm also in the process of swaping out the 6 for a 327. But I've had other car issues with the family cars so the 63 Nova project has had to back a back seat. :( Check out the thread" project 63 engine swap has started" that's mine.

Very Nice!! :yes: What radiator is that you have in the Nova?

:ragtop:
Thanks - It's a blast to drive. i picked up the radiator from Rudy at Modern Performance Classic. Not sure of the manufacturer. I am having some cooling problems. I ordered a spacer to move the fan closer to the radiator and hopefully that solves the problem.

Forgotten 62

Has anyone else run into this problem? Every time I seem to be looking for replacement parts for my 62 convertible, they start at 63 thru 65 and leave out the 62's. Is there a chart some where that lists parts that will interchange from year to year? I understand that some parts are 62 exclusive like the grille and emblems but some of the other parts must interchange.

MJ40, didn't you already create a thread on this? There's no need to post it twice. Everyone sees it when they hit the "New Posts" search command and you'll receive many more responses as a THREAD.

'62 & '63 convertible parts all interchange
as well as most of '62-63 Oldsmobile F-85 , Buick Skylark & Tempest convertible parts , such as the top frame , rear windows , top latches , rear seat and I believe the rear arm rests :yes:
Impala and Cadillac use the same top latches , Impala visor supports look very similar but are different ( they will work )
Chevy II / Nova , power top & power tailgate , use the same switch & knob
