Yes it will work. You have a good donor car allready. A lot of front clip installs are done using Novas. The rear end will work as well. I run a set of 3:08 gears in my 57 pickup.I run a 350/350 and still have good power, and toqure.
If you want to haul heavy loads or pull a trailer with your truck , i would install 3:73 gears in the rear.
If you look on the top or right(passenger side) of the Nova rear end you will find a set of numbers. Take those numbers and look them up on the nastyz28 site and you can find out what gears were in the car from the factory.
Hope this helps some.Sounds like a good project. Good luck.
Go to Custom Classic Truck shop on the net. They have a wonderful site and lots of help for your project.
