This 64 Chevelle SS is sitting in the weeds in a field and has been for a while.  The car was driven
by the owner's son while he was in high school in the late 1980's (I remember it was VERY fast),
but was parked in a barn when the son graduated and went off to college.
Here are a few pics of a 63 SS Chevy II that I rescued from certain death.  I was in the market for a
builder and answered an add for 2 1963 Chevy It's, one driver, one parts car.  The driver was a beautiful
hardtop 400 series car with no options other that power steering....One problem, it had been t-boned
on the passenger side, but drivable.  The parts car was a honest to god 63 SS car that was pretty
loaded with options.  One problem with this one too,

NO TITLE and it had sat in a field for over 5 years with no glass!  I purchased both cars for a whopping
$1100 and drove the 400 series car for a year.  I now have a good title on the SS car(3 year wait for a legal title)
and it is in being rebuilt.  This car came with P/S, P/B, SS package (ALL crucial emblems and trim missing),
front and rear bumper guards, pushbutton radio, tinted glass, and factory A/C.  Original motor was
long gone, tranny was shot, needs quarters, but that is it, the rest is solid!  Jack
Here is a picture of a 1965 Chevy II Nova. Has sat in field for three years and was pulled
to its current location. - Joseph
Living in the mountains of New Jersey (yes, we have mountains, not just the city of Newark
and the Meadowlands), we have many lake communities that still have quite a population of
old muscle cars layin' dead. I found this one while visiting some friends who were hosting a
Memorial Day BBQ. When I asked the old lady who answered the door about this Chevelle,
she rolled her yes back and said, "That's my daughter's, I wish she'd get it out of here!"
A few more years, and it will become part of the landscape. The last
inspection was 1994, and I do remember seeing this car running around for
sale. Kinda hard to sell a car on a dead-end street. - Dave O.

The car sat in a barn covered by pigeon poop for about 10 years, then was moved to this field
when the owner sold the barn a couple years ago.  The doors and quarter panels are pretty rusted at
the bottom, but otherwise the car is solid.  It has no engine, but the 4 speed and shifter are still present.
I talked to the owner about buying it, but he insists that he will make it
into a drag car someday. - Adam B.
