  2. 73 Hood

    Body and Interior
    Hey guys I'm looking for a place to get a stock 1973 Nova hood. Online if possible. Everything that I find is either a cowl or something different. I'm not terribly picky but something that would bring it close to original would be good. Also would it be possible for the 1972 hoods to fit with...

  5. 65 Chevy II Nova Hood Spear

    I notice all the repop hood spears for 1st generation list 1962-1964. Does 1965 have a unique spear? Is it longer? Different shape? My original 65 spear has 6 attachment points and seems to look like the repop. Unfortunately the chrome though not pitting, does not look so good. Thanks in advance...

  9. Make A 4th Gen look like a 3rd Gen?

    Body and Interior
    Hello I am thinking of saving to buy a Nova, but the 68'-74' models are harder to find, more expensive, and (in my opinion) better looking to me then the 75'-79'. I was wondering if anyone have fabricated, or acquired the body of a 68'-74' nova, and applied it to the later model nova? Or maybe...
