Pro touring style and possible historical correctness?

Hello, Iím Felix from Germany.

Iím currently building my 69 Chevy Nova, going the pro touring style route.

For the German registration as a historical vehicle I need some historical evidence, that the style of the modification were common during the early period of the car. It doesnít matter that much if itís from a racing application (maybe somethin is to find in Trans-am racing), like drag racing, nascar or just street use. The modifiaction must not be made on a Nova, any other car, also a production car with the design type of the modiciations might work.

These are the modifications Iíve done/ willing to do:

∑ Rack and pinion steering

∑ tubular control arms

∑ guldstrand mod

∑ rollcages / downbars

∑ minitubs

∑ aluminum fuel tanks

∑ big brakes, like 6 piston wildwood with vented rotors

∑ coilover shocks

∑ hydroboost brake booster

∑ torque arm rear suspension

Everything up to 10 years after production date is useable for me. Since the Nova is from 69, I can use material/information etc. up to 79.

Any stuff like old magazines, photos, catalogs, books, old advertisement and links to forums / picture galleries etc. will work for me Ė the more the better.

I know, this might not be so easy, because some of the parts/styles were not so common in the way we are using them now.

But maybe you can help me in this case? Thanks a lot in advance and best regards, Felix.

Some Chevy Monzas and Vegas had torque arms. They'd be in the date range you're looking for.
