Hi, I'm new to this forum. I just bought a 1962 Chevy II Nova 400 2Dr Coupe. It has a 194 6 and a Powerglide. It also has 4 lugs and is mostly original (missing hub caps :(). I wanted to upgrade the wheels with some wider, larger steel stock-style ones. I'm pretty limited with my wheel selection so I'm thinking of swapping to a 5 lug setup.

I wanted to know what 10 bolt rears will swap over easy with 5 lug setups. Are there an sites that have an extensive database for this conversion?

I want to limit this all to bolt on parts. I definitely would like to revert back to all stock in a few years. Thanks!



BTW This is my Nova.

Looks like a nice car. For a direct bolt in you will need a rear end from a 1964/67 Chevy II.

It's not too hard to weld up flanges either. I have a 10bolt posi waiting to go in, just need to move the spring plates.

If your keeping the 6 cylinder you can redrill your stock axles and get full size brake drums with the 5 lug pattern already.
