Hello guys. I'm not Nova owner, but I'm restoring such car for my client. I'm working on it for several years already and I think you will be interested in this project. The car came to me in very very bad condition. Picture attached. It looks much more better today, but still lots of work left. First o all the car was disassembled and sandblasted.

Shipping and taxes really makes big difference to parts prices, but what to do. It's impossible to get parts for Nova in Lithuania.

Wow. Huge project. Glad you’re able to save it and bring it back, especially being in a place where parts aren’t readily available. Nice work, and I look forward to seeing the end result.👍

Here are some more photos from all process. I couldn't find metal dashboard part, so I bought camaro one, made a cut and welded one from two. Tinned all the welds on the body, sandblasted and painted suspension parts.
From what I understand it is extremely expensive to build an American muscle car over seas in the European theatre, my hats off to you to do so much with so little and still make it look so professional!! Kudos
Here is a shot of mine..

I can't imagine how much more difficult it would be to build a classic American muscle car over than here. You're doing a great job, and giving an old girl a new life. Greetings from America.

Some more photos. Welding works are finished, body primed, interior painted in black, vibro and sound isolation glued all over the body. I'm working on Saginaw 800 steering box past days. Disassembled, cleaned and painter the body. Assembly now.
If you are interested in this build you can check my Instagram profile. There are more photos of this build and other stuff I do.
