Well , I like this 'Father / Son' deal . . . for sure.
Plus, - - for the son - - There is no better learning tool than a "Chevy Six Motor" . Think about it . . . depending how u'r 194 'runs now' ; you can find a better 250 engine and make it look like the 194 stocker (plus, be happier , with better power). 1st question is : does u'r 63 have power steering ? If that answer is NO - - - then, the 250 engine
Will DROP - IN . Don't even change the (front sump oil pan -- - - - - use the "Rear Sump Oil PAN" ) , and make it really simple. (only will work - without P/S) ( in a 1st gen car) .
I've been driving my Nova for a very long time with the stock 250 motor & p/g trans (like 18 yrs.) . That gives you $ $ $ for other parts , or gas money going to school .
Now the real secret to having fun with u'r Chevy Six . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . is too install a T 5 5speed tranny. My T 5 trans has made a hugh difference in the " FUN FACTOR " of my Nova , and one of the Smartest moves I've made in the 23 yrs I've owned this car ( I'm the second owner, too).
I like your Chevy II very much , and looks to be a clean one also. Have Fun & Learn A lot . . . . . . . just my 2cents . . . . . . . jim

But , with those "old photobucket - blurd-out pictures !
Still some good info about what they used.
FYI ; I went to the " Pertronix Ingition" up-grade using my stock small dist. (been running for 22 + years ) .
AND, I really like the 'Paint Job & color , very much . . . . good job . . . . . jim
So I suck at posting stuff because I don't like computers, but here we are. I've been in the process of tearing down my 65 nova and putting it back together. Here's everything thats been going on since August of last year.
Bought the car pretty much in stock form. It ran fine with just some...
