Very true about the bondo Mr.Bill.. And yes we WILL CUT THEM UP !!! He like's to have something that no one has... It was his run around truck.. And didn't have a lot of money in it.. So let's cut it up.. It was a 4 door Nova, And was in very bad shape,, So I'm sorry to say.. It didn't make it..

As Randy said it was a rust bucket but the front clip is going under a 1948 F-1 for a friend of mine.Also it only had 48,000 miles on the inline 6 and it is going in my other friends 33 Plymouth 4 Dr sedan with a 700R4.So we are making good use of all the good parts,I hate to waste an old Chevy.

El Sonoma

Now I wonder what it'd look like if you kept the swept "C" Pillar (yes I know its actually a B pillar) and then added in an extended roof, some windows and a back glass matching the angle of the B pillar. Change the angle of the tailgate

Viola! A '53 Nomad!

Not a bad idea,I love Nomads. But I use it too much as a truck so it would not be practical for me if I would have to haul something tall like an engine hoist.
