I just purchased a reproduction SS emblem for the original die cast rear SS panel of my 1972 fake SS. The new one (from all classic car parts) does not line up with the holes in the panel, the new one seems smaller. Does anyone have a picture of the panel and emblem? It is a fake but I don't want to drill new holes if it is totally wrong.

Also my door panels for my 1972 have a wood grain strip in them? I was sure these must have been from a ventura or something other than Nova but I just looked at a four door that has the same fake wood grain strip and also the same spot for an adjustable mirror. Has anyone ever seen this? The car I found them in is clearly a stock 4 door in Moyack Musles' junk yard in Virginia. Are these a stock option?

You guys have impressive cars and inspire me to make mine better.
Thanks

SS questions...

You can look at my website to see tail panels with SS emblem. 70-72 should all be the same.....

as for woodgrain....the deluxe interior had the wood grain accent on the door panels....std interior did not.


there should also be a Nova emblem on the woodgrain....

Has anyone ever seen this? Placement of rear panel ss emblem and interior panels

Phil, you can see the original 1972 Nova brochure index at this website::yes:

http://www.classicnovas.net/brochure/72-i.htm

Once there, click on page 8 or 9 and study them.

You can right-click them, save as jpegs, and blow them up with any photo editor like MicroSoft Picture-It! to study them.

You might look at the 1971 brochure too.
Just back up to:
http://www.classicnovas.net/brochure.htm

This may help you, "MAYBE!", said the Red M&M":D

years ago when I put the taillight panel on my old 70 I had to drill and slot the holes so I could line the panel up evenly between the taillights. I also put silicone on the fasteners so water won't get in the trunk.



P.S. robsquezn owns the car now.
