Terry W’s 1963 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Terry W’s 1963 Nova

Terry started this 1963 Nova resto-mod project about 5 years ago with his son. The pair reworked the entire car inside and out.

They performed all of the work together without any additional help. They began with a 1961 Corvette 283 small block and mated it to a 700R4 overdrive transmission. The pair also performed all the paint and body work required to get it looking as it is now. And of course the interior was totally revamped as well.

“I can get in this car and go back to my teens driving like I stole it. Not really but I do like pushing the pedal and hearing that motor rev.”


Terry plans to convert the rear to an adjustable 4 link in the near future, but other than that this 1963 Nova is just about done.
