1964 Chevy II/Nova Body Panel Interchange


Please note that this is NOT a list of parts for sale. The purpose of this list is to help fellow Nova enthusiasts determine which restoration and repair parts will fit a 1964 Chevy II/Nova.

The "Avail from Parts Suppliers" column lists the availability status.

The "GM PN" column lists the original GM part number for the part (if available). These numbers are listed as LEFT / RIGHT. I've taken these numbers from several different sources so there may be some inaccuracies. Many of these numbers have been discontinued by GM or superseded with new numbers. However, they are still useful for reference and parts identification purposes.

Parts listed in green will physically fit a '64 Chevy II/Nova but are not technically correct for '64. The notes following the listing give more details about the differences.

Window Glass, Moldings and Mirrors:

* Check with local auto glass shops for availability. Restoration parts suppliers do sell some glass but shipping can be difficult and expensive. Most glass shops can cut replacement flat side glass for '62 - '67 models but it will not have the original part number/date code etching.

All '62 - '65 2 door coupes (hardtop w/o post) share the same glass. They also share windshields (and possibly side windows) with '62 - '63 convertibles.

All '62 - '65 2 and 4 door sedans (post) and wagons share the same windshield. All '62 - '64 sedan rear windows are interchangeable between 2 and 4 door sedans (but not coupes). Front door windows also interchange between '62 - '65 4 door sedans and wagons.

Wheels and Hub Caps:

Notes:


  1. A '62 or '63 grille is probably physically interchangeable. But a '62 grille would require the use of a '62 hood lip molding to prevent interference.
  2. The '62 parking lenses appear to be physically interchangeable with the '63 - '64 lenses but they are clear instead of amber.
  3. All handles are the same for 2 & 4 door, front and rear, but rear push rods are shorter on 4 doors.
  4. These parts are different for all body styles (2 door, 4 door, Hardtop, Sedan, Station Wagon). Front 4 door Sedan doors fit Station Wagons and the rear doors can be modified to fit. Commonly available reproduction 2 door quarter patch panels can be adapted to fit other body styles.
  5. These parts are different between 2 door, 4 door, and Station Wagon body styles.
  6. These parts are different between Station Wagons and all other body styles.

Please note that this is NOT a list of parts for sale. The purpose of this list is to help fellow Nova enthusiasts determine which restoration and repair parts will fit a 1964 Chevy II/Nova.
