69 Nova 4 cylinder


Started a 69 Nova 4 cylinder 3 speed. The engine is based on the Trumpeter 63 Nova 6 cylinder, the tranny is from the old Revell 55-57 Chevy series. Color is Testors Ruby red, close to Chevy's Garnet Red. Here is the progress so far.

That's what would have started the joke that the name Nova is taken from the Spanish translation.

Lookin' good, Lee!

They had them, but they are rare. Most went to fleet usage.
