    I recently picked up a vintage frame beam, the hydraulic cylinders are out being resealed and will be a big upgrade from the tree that I’ve been using.
    The pictured 63 Nova SS will be the first project I use it on.

    63 Nova was my first car. Wasn't an SS, though. Traded it in on the Maverick in January 73.

    I had a 63 too, sometime before I bought it somebody installed early Impala bucket seats, Mr. Gasket floor shifter, 250 six with a TH350 and a chrome valve cover. I think they did that to distract future owners from the street signs a gallons of bondo filling the rust in the rear quarters!

    I think the early Novas/Chevy II's were like Mavericks in the following decade, everybody either owned one or knew someone that did.
