History
Purchased car many years back have slowly restored to as close to original as possible. Body, engine, tranny matching numbers. Hope to complete in a few more years. Needs tranny rebuild, new wiring harness as old one is very dried up, new radial red line tires over the 2 ply polyester to improve high speed driving. Carb rebuild to eliminate bog and improve starting. Check pinion alignment or tranny issues due to some vibrations, better drivable clutch for around town. Few small things to fix but that goes on forever. In general looks great and is very fast and loud. What else can one ask for from a rare Nova.

Interior
Original seats re-upholstered - Black. New rug. Interior looks original but no radio - can't hear it anyway.

Audio
Don't drive it much and engine sound is music to my ears when I do drive it.
Suspension
5 leaf - load leveling shocks
Disk brakes all around.
Needs emergency brake cabling.
Wheel and Tire
2 ply red line polyester - horrible control. Need to replace with red line radials.
