PROJECT 70 NOVA

SHARING SOME PICS, OF YESTERDAY'S DECONSTRUCTION, OF MY WIFE'S 70 NOVA! WE BOUGHT THIS NOVA COUPLE WEEKS AGO, IN CANNAN, CT...JUST ABOUT INTO THE MASSACHUSSETS BORDER. IT WAS BURIED IN THE WOODS BEHIND A STORE! YOU'D NEVER KNOW IT WAS THERE......SINCE IT IS NO WAY VISIBLE TO TRAFFIC ONLOOKERS. IN FACT, WE ONLY GOT THE LEAD ON IT BECAUSE WE INQUIRED ABOUT NOVAS, AT A MASSACUSSETS CLASSIC CAR JUNKYARD SPOT, WE KNOW OF. AT FIRST GLANCE....IT'S THE TWIN!! CLOSER SIGHT REVEALED HOW RUFF IT IS. VERY WORKABLE CONSIDERING WE HAVE JUST ABOUT EVERY NEW PANEL AND A PARTS CAR! BEST PART OF ALL, IT IS COMPLETE CAR WITH A FRAME....A MINT FRAME!!! SOME OF YOU ON HERE, ARE AWARE THAT WE (I) WAS TALKING ABOUT MY WIFES NOVA AWHILE BACK. TRUTH TO THE MATTER, THIS MAKES NOVA #2! THE FIRST ONE GOT HACKED BY SOMEONE WHO CLAIMED TO KNOW ABOUT RESTORING CARS. CUT THE ENTIRE BACK HALF (BOTH REAR FRAME RAILS ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE BACK SEAT, TAIL PANEL, REAR END DROPPED AND COMPLETE TRUNK FLOOR) OF THE NOVA. HE ABANDONED IT! IT CURRENTLY SITS NOT MOVEABLE ON 2 FRONT TIRES....WHILE JACK STANDS, HOLD THE REST OF THE BODY IN PLACE!! IT'S A DAMN SHAME -THE 1ST ONE (THE HACKED ONE), IS "BETTER" OF THE TWO.....IF IT WASN'T HACKED UP! NOW THAT NOVA'S LIFE, IS TO BRING THE NEWLY BOUGHT NOVA BACK FROM THE DEAD!! MY SCHOOL INSTRUCTOR, MY WIFE AND I, STARTED THE DECONSTRUCTION PHASE! EVERYONE WAS READY TO DIVE HEAD FIRST INTO THIS PROJECT. NO ONE WANTED TO TOUCH THE INTERIOR THO! PRIOR TO DECONSTRUCTION, WE HAD TO SPRAY CLEANERS AND BUG SPRAYS TO KILL ALL THE VARIOUS KINDS OF BUGS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE CAR. MAN...THERE WAS ALOT!! AS WE WERE CLEANING, MICE STARTED COMING UP FROM THE SEATS AND IN THE TRUNK AREA!! NOT FUCKING COOL! NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WAS THE ONE, WHO HAD THE PLEASURE (NOT) OF DOING MOST OF THE "TEARING OUT THE INTERIOR" JOB. OH..MY WIFE GOT IN THERE TOO! AFTERALL, ITS HER CAR!!! FIRST DAY, WENT BY SMOOTH! TOOK US 4 HRS, TO GET IT STRIPPED TO THE POINT WHERE ITS AT NOW! I WAS HATING LIFE, DEALING WITH THOSE STUBBORN DOOR HINGE PINS! OTHER THAN THAT AND THE INTERIOR, IT WAS A SMOOTH RIDE! ANYWAYS....HERE ARE PICS OF THE BUILD THUS FAR! THE 1ST "FINISHED" PIC, REPRESENTS WHAT MY WIFE WANTS HER NOVA TO BE LIKE WHEN COMPLETED!! SHE'S GOING WITH THE METALLIC PLUM CRAZY PURPLE W/BLACK COWL (2,4 OR STINGER HOOD). WE ARE TOSSING AROUND IDEAS FOR THE POWER PLANT. ONE THING IS FOR SURE...THE 6BANGER IS OUT!! SHE SAYS SHE WANTS SOMETHING OF THE 400ISH HP RANGE. NEW SUSPENSION, NEW WIRING, FRAME OFF AND ROTISSERE. DOESN'T LOOK LIKE MUCH NOW. JUST WAIT.......... THAT THING ON THE PACKAGE TRAY IS A BIG DEAD SNAKE REMAINS HERE THE BOTH OF US ARE ACCESSING THE DAMAGE! NOT HAPPY WITH WHAT I SAW. A LITTLE SUPRISE, OF THE LITTLE ROT AT THE COWL AREA AND A COUPLE SPOTS IN THE WINDOW CHANNEL AREA. IT'LL BE OK......

THIS IS THE 1ST AND OVERALL BETTER NOVA! IF IT WASN'T FOR THE HACK JOB IN THE WHOLE REAR OF THE CAR, THIS WOULD BE THE ONE!! VERY SHAMEFUL IT'S GOING TO BE CUT UP....EVEN IF IT'S TO COMPLETE THE CURRENT NOVA. COULD'VE HAD 2 NOVAS UP AND RUNNING. NO COOL CAR SHOULD COME TO THIS! IT'LL BE PUT TO GOOD USE!!!

Haha! I said something VERY similiar to you, when I looked at the car, for the first time!! I was rubbing and rubbing the vin. so much rust, I was wondering, if we'd be able to pull the vin off the damn thing. After a good cleaning, the vin is readable!!
