Hey Steve, post up some pics! I got some left over 66 parts, but I don't think they'll help you much.

Im not a 100% sure on the motor yet . a buddy of mine gave me a turbo 350 it needs a converter .The tranny has been laying around for years so we will see if its any good . the motor I was thinking about pulling the 388 out of my truck . but then that wouldnt run . just the way work is right now , I dont know which way to go . I just want to do some low budget drag racing and do some up grading later when I can afford to do so . the body is hammerd the more i look at it . but all that can be fixed with a little time . i will try to learn how to up load some pics . it took me 2 weeks to learn how to get register on the site so Im sure it will only take about 6 months to load some pics :D

So your thinking small block? So what kind of numbers you want to run? On a budget you got to go NOS! Gearing , subframe , tires and traction are your big issues. Cage if your going to go fast enough!!! We got Ryans t-350 if yours doesnt work!:yes:

small block for sure , its got hooker super comp fenderwell headers. I would like to do some where in the mid 12s . to start then put a little nos unit on it . then when i can afford it put a cage in it :yes: I think it would be cool to make the best of both worlds and still be able to drive it on the street . And be able to take it to the track . the car allready has offset spring hangers with a m/t drag tire it should hook up . we will see talk to you soon dave :D

93 or 94 chevy p-up. truck ran great! Its a throttle body motor so you could just convert to carb and distributor. He works nights so ill leave him a message. It has the 700r4 also and the computor is still all hooked up with the complete wiring harness. It might even start up!!!:eek: Ive allways thought of useing it for a project!

Steve,

There is a guy here who is parting some 63 Novas, if interested I might be able to take a look at some items for you, take some pics, whatever. If interested in some smaller items, I can bring them out with me in June as long as they'll fit in the back of the minivan :D

It doesn't look all that bad, even if the pictures look like they were taken with a cell phone :D I've seen alot worse trust me....I'll inquire about the 63 parts...anything in particular? i.e. parts you'll need right away?
