1979 Chevy Nova

Hello Team,
I am happy to join this forum as I work on my recently purchased 79 Nova I found while on vacation in Oregon. As the title suggests, this Nova has been modified including a 454 big block which I was told came from an 80s GMC. However, I was able to do some research on the numbers stamped on the engine block and it may actually be a crate engine. Either way, I am pretty excited about the possibilities of what I can do with this thing. It also came with custom Flowmaster exhaust with electronic cutoff flapper valves in front of the muffler, so this thing is pretty loud!

I will have a lot of work ahead of me because it sat for at least a couple years. I have already done a tune-up, replaced the tires, and a few other small things here and there. My next big plan is to replace all the suspension bushings and mounts with polyurethane.

One thing I cannot figure out and I was hoping you guys might have some insight. The trunk has does not seem to be original. As far as I can tell, it is the trunk from a hatchback? Only my car is not a hatchback. However, the rear seats do fold down.

Anyway, enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think.
