Working on the 3rd year of a project for my father in law.
67 Nova II. Full resto, including motor swap, 200R trans, disc conversion, new floors (the real estate signs with the Henry's wet patch wasn't fun) etc...
Getting to the tail end, but I am sure he will enjoy it when it's done.
You guys are a plethora of great info.
I guess the lurking is over.

Welcome to the site Ted. I'm sure he will love it when it is finished. Post up some pics of the car when you get a chance.

Hope this works.
Here are some photos from when I first started the project. The car belonged to my wife's little brother, who passed away before he got to get started on the project. Her dad could never part with the car, so it sat in the garage for 15 years. He had a lot of trouble with the straight 6 and 3 speed, so I decided to make it a little more user friendly. He's 75 now so it should be a little easier for him. I prob got 6 months left in the project.
Here we go,
Engine bay and floor pans.
Not seeing where I can add photos from the iPad?
I will keep trying.

I added some photos to an album in my profile, but I noticed there is a note that says I cannot post attachment on thread replies.
Maybe a moderator can hook me up to add them. otherwise, they are in my Nova album.
I had the entire car gutted and soda blasted, so I should be getting it back from paint this coming week. the whole undercarriage has been painted, powder coated or undercoated. I need to get all new rubber and then begin putting the windows back in. It will get a layer of Dyna Matt and the stereo will be built and installed. Still not sure if I want a radio in it, or going straight Ipod.
Upholstery is after that, then she goes home to Pops house. I am sure I will sneak her out from time to time. :D
Thanks for the warm welcome.
