1963 Chevrolet Nova Additional Info:

1963 Chevrolet Nova Convertible
Complete rotisserie restoration done by Wayne Bushey in York PA, wner of Nostalgic Nova. The car is spectacular and essentially a brand new 1963 Nova.
Paint is incredible with incredible attention to detail. Door sills, nder hood, nder trunk, ll paint is spectacular (pictures). White with red interior. New door panels, ront seat rebuild, arpet, olding, ills, eatherstripping, tc. (interior looks brand new). Black Mercedes cloth top (not vinyl) really makes the car stand out. Top and frame are virtually new. Additionally, t's really like two different cars! With the top down, t's a red and white convertible (red boot). With the top up it's a black and white convertible! I have had people do a double take wondering if it was the same car! I really like the fact you can change the whole look of the car with the top up or down.

283 V8 motor overhauled (pictures) with Turbo 350 transmission. Drives excellent, trong and smooth shifting. Has new dual exhaust with chrome tips, ounds great! Engine bay is car show ready with all new nuts, olts, asteners, lamps, nd hard lines. Undercarriage was blasted down and painted gloss black.....you can eat off of the bottom of this car (pictures). New Disc brake conversion with all new hardware and lines (pictures). All chrome and bright-work are spectacular and new or polished.
The rear end was shortened 3/4 of an inch on each side with new Moser axles, o larger tires would fit in the stock location. 10 bolt rear with 3.36's I believe. Rear sway bar. Cruises great at 75mph. Handles great and tracks straight as an arrow. Currently has rear tires 235/60/14, .5 wide on 7" rims, ront are 185/65/14, .5. They look awesome and give the car a great stance! I have measured, nd believe 245/45/17's and maybe a little more, ill fit in the back. I was planning on converting to a restomod style eventually where I could swap back and forth between that look and the current stock look, ut time has not allowed. I also have a set of Church Boys Racing tubular upper and lower control arms and front sway bar that are new.

This car is a beautiful example of what a 1963 Chevrolet Nova looked like when brand new! Wayne really did an amazing restoration on this car and it shows! The car is not an SS (there were no V8 Nova convertibles produced by Chevrolet). I have put chrome SS emblems on the car which are removable - very subtle. This is not a cheap car. There is virtually nothing that needs to be done on this car besides get in and drive. If you want one for less with pitting in the chrome and paint/rust issues, his is not your car......if you want a practically brand new 1963 Nova with almost everything new or replaced, his is your car.

Always gets tons of looks, ecause you don't see them often.

All restoration information chronicled in Nova Times dated September/October 2014 issue. See pictures.
