Hey when you put a stock muffler on your vehicles, before install take a long drill bit and drill 4 or 5 holes in the baffles makes it sound sweet. Just saying. Be safe. Peace.

Rick are you not commenting anymore :-( I messaged you on fb. and on twitter. etc. im too shy to email you.
Classic Truck Rescue
No offense taken at all James. I did not mean to imply that either. Simply explaining why I can't answer all of my comments like I used to. It's all good.
Lawn Mowers & Things That Make Noise
@Classic Truck Rescue Im sorry i didnt mean to offend you sir. I have now watched all 140 of the ctr series :) in 1 month flat :-) :-) I appreciate your hard work. :-) Thankyou :-)
Classic Truck Rescue
James, I try to answer comments when I can, I just can't possibly answer every comment anymore. Between the emails, the messages on the CTR Facebook page, the comments on the channel, filming, editing and uploading videos, I simply would not have time to get any work done. I don't do anything on Twitter except upload videos. I hope you understand. Every now and then I pick a video and try to answer every comment made on that particular video. That is the best I can do. Thanks Fer Watchin'. -Rick

Do u stumble across very many chevy or gmc crew cab square bodies? I live up in central washington and have been looking and not finding many. Im planning to build one for my wife and thought maybe u stumble across one from time to time
Classic Truck Rescue
Yes I do. Unfortunately, I have a lot of people who ask about trucks that they are not serious about obtaining,,,,,rick@classictruckrescue.com if you are serious about a Square-Body Crew Cab....

1964 was the first year for a factory V8 Chevy II, but for some reason they dropped the Nova SS model (and all Chevy II convertibles); due to customers' complaints, the Nova SS returned at mid-year(although the convertibles didn't).

I have a 64 Chevy 3/4 ton C20 Pickup with factory pickup bed dump and power take off hydraulics running a ram that will dump 7,000 LBS that I have used hard since 1992 when I bought it from the the original owner in ND. When the original 230 L6 sprang a leak in the main oil galley at 300,000+ miles, I found a newly rebuilt 194 that was taken out of a cherry 62 Nova Chevy II. It had everything still bolted on it. Took me 4 hours to pull and replace the 230, and she was back on on the road. I noticed two things right away, 1. the 194 was smooth as silk and would rev 1000 RPM higher then the 230, 2. it now got 20 MPG and would travel down the road at 70 all day! Well I drove her to ND in 2002 and then life happend and she sat until 2013. I hitched a ride to ND, threw a battery in her, put a quart size fuel filter in line, and drove her home to Oregon. New fuel burnt a valve. Neighbor had a very built 250 he sold me so I slipped it in and I Still use her. Kinda miss the 194, think I will rebuild it and find another old girl for it to power.

@Classic Truck Rescue I started watching your CTR when I recognized the tow truck you rescued and where it had been. I live near by and I was hooked, then I watched all I could find starting at CTR1. Last summer I went back to ND again and I Started my 64 GMC that had been parked since 1991. I had to cut down a forest just to get to the hood, doors and tailgate. The trees were 10" in diameter. The tires still had air, the brakes pumped up fine, the carb still looked spotless, so I hooked up my jerry can and fired her right up and drover her around town a few times. Feeling lucky I moved on to my 63 GMC that had been parked since 1995... and she fired right up 3rd revolution. Now I was on a roll! I threw the battery in my 78 chevy Motorhome that had been parked since 2002 and poured some new gas in her... three revolutions and she ran perfect so I drove her around town and stopped at the gas station to top off the tires... They were still up! Now I was really excited so I tried my 68 chevy C30 flatbed dump. Luke ran out, cranked just fine but no start so I pulled the plugs and there was antifreeze in 3 holes 1, 3, and 7. Prayed and the Lord said "there's a head gasket hanging in the garage" so I emptied out my garage looking... no luck! As I was walking back to the truck it occurred to me that maybe HE meant the garage at my rental house... sure enough there was the intake, exhaust and head gasket I needed. Pulled the head, and it was spotless inside, still had the honing hatches in the cylinders! The leak had happened so close to my tear down it did not even have time to rust! Bolted her back together and she ran so good I drove her home to Oregon! Now she is being used at least once a week. Someday I want to come visit at your convenience and give you a hand on what ever for the day. Terry

Hi Rick big fan from Michigan did a little research on your friends Nova the 400 on the fender badge means it,s a 400 series Nova they came in convertable or what you have was called a sport or sport coupe (that different front fender chrome was on those only,the only engine was the 194 I-6 and powerglide a v8 was only an option in 63. Keep rescuing and keep tubing I,m watching richyarnell@gmail.com and as you say Peace Out Brother

Wouldnt have it.. there's so much rot in that frame by the time you get done putting that V8 in it it will be s*** in a week seriously it isn't worth scrap weight of course I'm not a Chevy guy neither so I know everybody in here will disagree with me but at the end of the day I wouldn't put a dime into it unless I was going to do a frame-up restoration including boxing the frame
Classic Truck Rescue
Well...when's the last time you bought a 1962 Chevy Nova Don.....and please...be honest. ....and be honest about what you paid for it.... I'm thinking never.....which would explain your assessment of this car's value....and would also explain why you 'Wouldn't have it"...and never will.

The 'twins'...."Louie"....y'all had me crackin' up! My dad used to work briefly for an auto salvage yard here in Houston back in 1966 and he brought home a 1964 Nova for me...black with all the chrome. Geez it was pretty! Of course I didn't know diddly about working on cars so he towed it off after a coupla weeks. Then later on he brought home a 1956 Chevy Bel-Aire....YUP!...hauled it off too. I couldn't show my anger for him because he was 6'6" and weighed in about 240!...no fat, just all MAN! Great video as always, Rick! I think you and Jim should do comedy in your spare time! Lol!

use the parking brake. I NEVER have jacked up or down suspensions. bad idea to do that. Also leave wheel offset correct. One note. Corvair 14 inch rims will fit those old chevy IIs'

I did plenty of unsafe things myself. just one thing I avoided. we are both still alive and going so what ever we did worked out.
NebukedNezzer Hace 6 meses
Yes, but its a way of getting a different size and profile tire on to the car.

P.S. The Corvair rims will fit on the Nova....but the Nova hubcaps won't fit on the Corvair rims...

I didn't say it was SMART to jack them up....look at it as my generation's version of eating Tide Pods. .....

straightening that trim , a trick that I found to work great was several different pieces of wood , dowel rods square blocks ect , and a small ball peen hammer with a couple layers of cardboard taped to the head it's almost impossible to destroy it , just takes time that way ...

In 1962 one of my buddies bought a New Nova just like this one. I drove it new and noticed one flaw. I bumped the shifter which was in the console between bucket seats. By bumping the shifter it went into Park, locking up the rear end. We were careful not to bump the shifter after that. The six cylinder was pretty spunky.

That car seems more like a candidate for complete restoration than for modding with a V8. If you think about it, most people try to turn those old Novas into hot rods in way or another. To restore one to original condition would be different and make the car very valuable, in my opinion.

Chevy production of the Nova. Was to compete with the Ford Falcon. In the early 70's. GM produced 4 cars using the Nova name. The front and rear moldings was the only difference. Nova Omega Ventura Apollo The first letters of each one spells out Nova.

That Chevy II Nova is so complete and original it would be dead easy to restore it to original. Obviously it would be more fun with a small block and the Muncie in it but being as original and straight as it is it would be nice to see it back as it rolled out of the factory. Even though it was a small and pretty cheap car in its day it must have been a seriously sharp-looking car. That's going to make a fantastic project for someone and, being so original, it's got to be super rare as they weren't exactly renowned for hanging together well over long periods. I'd love to know what the story with the Ford Econoline sitting by the dually frame is, it almost looks like it might have been an ambulance but it could have been a service vehicle or something...
