AM crew: educate me on 1962 Chevy II's and nova's

Discussion in 'OT Driven' started by liberals=whiner, May 24, 2009.

  1. Im looking at a 1962 Chevy II, 4 door. Id like to know what to look for as far as problem areas (rust and the like), what should I ask about? Any information about them would be great. Car looks to be in good shape but I would like to learn before I make a final decision.

    4 cylinder is the rarest. Mine doesn't have any rust and is in original condition (sans a repainted fender and the seats being recovered in the 70's by the original owner)with under 40k on the odo

    My parents had a late 60s Nova. Very little rust (southern car) and a lot of potential for performance upgrades/hot rodding. If they kept it, I probably would have done a fair bit of go-fast work to it.
     
  5. The car is not an AZ car. Hence the large amount of rust. Ive decided to hold off on the purchase. Im deployed right now and since I would kinda have to go sight un-seen on this one Im gonna wait

    i have a 64.

    62's have some unique parts that are much harder to find then a 63-64.

    4 door cars are not very popular, so you should get it for cheap.

    2 door with no post is the most desired....
