Description:

1963 Chevrolet Nova 300 Series

1963 Chevy II 300 Series two door sedan hot rod. Solid, straight, Texas car with very little rust and a very nice drivetrain. Presentable and fun as is or would be a very good starting point for a project if you want to personalize it and make it your own. Car is currently located in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania.
The front subframe has been replaced with a TCI unit having tubular control arms, a sway bar, manual rack and pinion steering, 2” dropped spindles and disc brakes.
The rear suspension includes stock leaf springs with new shocks and 2” lowering blocks. The rear is a 4.11 12 bolt posi that was narrowed to the stock Chevy II width.
The engine is a professionally built hydraulic roller 383 with Pro Action/RHS heads. All valvetrain parts are from Comp Cams including the cam, retrofit roller lifters, roller rockers, pushrods and beehive springs. The carb is a 750 Holley on an air gap dual plane intake. Runs very strong on pump gas.
Transmission is a Manual valve body Powerglide with a 10” converter and a B&M Pro-stick shifter.
An Optima battery is mounted in the trunk with an emergency shut-off switch mounted in the right rear back up lense. A high output alternator is mounted with a low mounting bracket and billet pullies.
The cooling system consists of a very nice aluminum radiator with fabricated aluminum shroud and two thermostatically controlled fans.
A Holley electric fuel pump is mounted in the back of the car drawing fuel from a stock gas tank with a rear exit, baffled sump. All fuel lines are Parker pushlock with Fragola fittings. Between the pump and the carb is a Holley regulator and a billet fuel log.
Overall, the body of the car is very nice. There are no signs of the car being wrecked or having extensive rust repair. All body panels are original. The floor pans are solid and original as is the trunk floor - nothing more than a few pin holes. The rockers, quarters, and doors have no rust. The front fenders have had some rust repair just above the head lights. There was also some rust repair in the panel just above the rear bumper. Subframe connectors were added and a 10 point roll cage was installed to stiffen the chassis.
Although the car has many good qualities, I want to be sure to point out that it is no show car. The previous owner had the car resprayed many years ago with a very low quality paint job, which looks decent from afar, but has many flaws. There are some scratches, chips and imperfections for sure. The area below the fuel filler cap is wrinkled up from spilled gas. The rusty areas on the fenders above the headlights were repaired with body filler which is showing signs of cracking. All the glass is good, but the rubber gaskets have cracked from the hot Texas sun and should be replaced. The interior is pretty scrubby with fiberglass seats, faded carpet, painted stock door panels and no headliner.
In summary, this is a cool looking and really quick Chevy II that has a lot of potential. The solid, straight body as well as the quality drivetrain and suspension parts, make this an ideal starting point for someone looking to build a really nice car. Or if you’re so inclined, enjoy it as is!
