1962, Chevy Nova II

This neat little skyblue Chevy II was originally my sisters car. It became my first car after she gave it to me when she got married to “the doctor.” The original drive-train was a six cylinder with a two speed power glide automatic transmission. I was 17-18 at the time and this car just never did have the oomph I felt I needed to have. So…after I blew the 6, I proceeded to look for a small block V8 to replace it. I found a nice little Chevy 283 long block that would easily fit the bill. Since I didn’t have a lot of money the 283 also fit the actual “bill.”
