74 Chevy Nova Update 19 - Big Block 454 V8 Engine Makeover
Here I show what I have done to the Big block 454 v8 engine that was in the 74 Nova. Though I have been working on the body, behind the scenes I have been also working on this engine. Now I reveal what I have done to it. Internally I replaced the oil pump as the engine was rebuilt by previous owner.
74 Chevy Nova Update 7 - Block sanding Hi build Primer
I did the first block sanding of the Hi Build primer. Heres the results.
This shows all the highs and lows in the body work. All imperfections are
block sanded down leaving a flatter surface. I also show the blocks I used.
1974 "Reborn" Chevy Nova Custom Walkaround HD
The grand finale. My "Reborn" 1974 Chevy Nova Custom. Walk around HD video
with a look of the interior as well as a look at the engine bay. Proud to
say that I did it all myself from metal work, body work to final paint. If
you have watched all the 74 Chevy Nova Update videos, you saw it happen
from start to finish. Music: Bad Style-Time Back.
