The #'s we do have has your boat being built in 1970
#2443 = 1970
#2449 = 1970

2443 is Craig's and he is a Nova guru so I'm sure he's knows what hull he has. Maybe something got screwed up or yours was bought first (in 1969) and the other two sat for a while before being sold in 1970.

Thanks for all the info....

I looked at my title and they did a really good job with this one it was originally titled in VA and it even has the engine numbers on it.

Also I am missing one of the original sets of the HM exhaust manifolds, any idea where I can find some????

At this day you are only going to find 40 year old exhaust used and most likely used in salt water. Either custom or you will have to go with something a little more modern.

If you're looking for new manifolds, might check Glenwood. They seem to have some less-than-mainstream stuff for old Fords/Olds/etc marine.

One more thing to consider.The width of the exhaust is critical.Elderbrock logs may work.The fords H/M were tight between the center manifolds stock!!!!.My buddy has a 24 nova like that with twin 350's in it.Got to almost pull a motor to replace center spark plugs.You can't even take the manifolds with out moving one motor center to center is tight on them.Back in the day another friend of mine actually made a plate that went in between the bell housings and rotated the engines away from each other for clearance and ease of maintenance..FYI JOHN SR PS a old style set of stainless marine might work if they had them for ford's?????

Hi;

If you still need any original, parts, photos I'm scraping a hull but have all the original parts, getting out of WAY TOO MANY PROJECTS.
Getting rid of a project and have a pr of fresh water HM 351'a complete with all parts intact including manifolds, bell-housings, water pumps, Bought the boat for the engines which were reported to have 13 hours since rebuild, engines are clean and look to be as advertised (10 year old rebuild). I getting rid of everything which will include a complete Nova 24 with Mercrusier 350's in need of restoration, trailer 2 351 HM's Vee drives, all running gear, props, shafts, rudders, stuffing boxes windshield, bow rail, and even a rebuilt opposite rotation 351 @ $7,500. All the HM parts look like new.

You may want to post that on the couple Donzi boards for the right eyes.
