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
∑ 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.
