Default J-ROD '67 Nova

We are currently building this '67 Nova for a local customer. It will debut at SEMA '14!!!

I've been a big fan of the forum, and thought I would share some build pics of this project!

It started out as a simple job that the owner just wanted to "repaint"... He bought the car online... (you know where I'm going with that...) After looking at the car I knew that it had some issues, but I didn't quite expect it to be as bad as it was... Its amazing what some people are okay hiding/ selling.

Heres where it started:





This is the BOTTOM of the floor...

We got some of the bad sheetmetal out of the way


YES that is a ROAD SIGN!

You mean they didn't come from the factory with road sign sheetmetal?

After media blasting




getting whats left squared up on our frame table



Our new inner rockers

And our new Art Morrison Chassis!!!



We built the inner and outer tubs for the car, not going too crazy on tire size. The customer has kids so the back seat was important



So with everything behind the quarters finished we painted all the hard to reach areas

Engine bay Fab




Getting an idea for ride height...




Shaved the cowl vents

Starting fab on the stainless gas tank

Routing the 3" exhaust through the Morrison rails! We try to build all our exhausts before the floor goes in, paying close attention to ground clearance...

Subscribed. Build is looking great. It's a shame how much cancer was hidden.
