What is your overall plan/vision for the car? Are you happy with the current state or do you have bigger plans?
Overall plan is to keep it running and driving as long as i can until its time for a v8 swap (still has the original 6cyl). So far I have all new tubular suspension arms, adj coilovers, and new brakes up front. Next is a few interior items then its on to new rear leafs/rear suspension work.

Sounds like a solid plan. Are you planning a SBC, BBC or LS for the V8 swap?

Chris --- WELCOME to SNS , with u'r 75 Nova ……. and, another 'Six' , glad too have you here with us.

I was born in 'Big-D' ---- way back then, I grew up in Garland , & worked all that area -- Garland, Richardson, Plano
(back when Plano was a "small town". Even, Rockwall & Rowlett use-to-be-small towns --------- not, any-more.
My older Sister lived in 'Wylie' for about 30 years.(she's now down in Austin area.

Maybe you should just keep your Chevy Six --- (almost extinct, now).I am -- 250 original motor -- or it was (before I added-on).

again, Welcome

(ps. - go back and "up-date your sig box with your "city & state , and type of Nova U own ; year, 2door/4dr , custom ? ).

Most likely LS but not ruling out a simple SBC with some sort of EFI top hat.
