I've got a 70 Nova .My car is buried in my garage,but your measurements sound about right .Is it a 12 bolt?You'll have to redrill lug pattern,pinion gear shaft is not as thick a diameter as a 10- 8.5 or 12 bolt car rear end .Just went out and measured my extra 8.5 10 bolt .It measures 54 1/2 "inside hub to hub. My 76 Blazer mud buggy 12 bolt measures 56 1/2" inside hub to hub.Are you sure of your measurements? What kinda car and what you wanna do with it?

Rearend for my 63 nova ss

Hey gang - I would like your opinions! I have a stock open hotchkiss rearend in my nova, with a 194cid 120hp motor with Powerglide. I am putting in this winter, a hopefully 300hp or so 250cid motor with 700R4. Would it be do-able to posi my hotchkiss rearend, or go with a 9" Ford cut to size?? Any other thoughts?? NovaBoy

The Nova rear end in the 62-63 cars has the same center as the 55-64 chevy rear end. You can get the posi units at several places. The carrier break is at 3.70 on most units:

Why 6 over 8 cylinders?

Hi there Henry Highrise! Because there is always a v8 in almost all Novas! I want something different! About 19 yrs ago I built a 250 six and had it in a 78 Camaro. I had the pleasure to dust off some 350's and a couple of mild 327's. this motor will have a bit more heat to it. After a short period of running the new motor, I will probably be attaching a centifugal supercharger to the engine, with about 5 or so pounds of boost! There are some guys out there who are playing with this stuff and having great success! I hav a book right now where a guy was getting 400+ hp with 6 to 8 pounds of boost! I really apreciate your question!
