Was at Hot August nights in Reno last night and met a guy who flagged me down. He has a 1963 Nova SS Convertible like I do. His Nova was a little different then mine. He said rumor has it that his Nova was owned by an old family friend who was close to some GM executives. His Nova has 5 lug wheels and a 283 in it. He said that the friend told the GM executives that he would love to buy a 1963 Nova SS Convertible and that he wanted one with 5 lug wheels and a 283. All the suspension looks original and all the 5 lugs drums have drum brakes etc. What was intersting is that on his crowl tag the options part had XXXXXXXXXXXXX acrossed it... The crowl tag looked original as did the rivets. I know many stories like with L79 Novas etc exist---any thoughts? He wanted my opinion --- all I could say is everything looked original. Pictures to follow soon!
