Default 71 nova rebuild

When my father died last week the 1971 nova I grew up working on with him became mine.

It sat for 14 years after it blew it's rear.

So far I have replaced the rear put a new edelbrock 600 carb on it, new spark plugs, radiator hoses and other minor things. I have to bring it to ohio from new Jersey to continue working on it but it is at least in running condition now.

It has a 454 big block in it and the list of need to do and want to do is far to long to list.

Here are some pics of it when I I got it to my friends garage to start working on it.
