Does anyone have a close up picture of a real Nova Wagon Roof Rack? I have a rack and think it is a Nova Wagon Roof Rack. I will post some pictures.


Thanks,
Bob

If it is, it is a 1st gen rack, but NOT a 2nd gen rack. (ie. NOT a 66 or 67 rack).

Maybe someone else can speak up on the 1st gen's ??

I think that's the rack for the early Corvair applications. The Nova shared a similar rack design as the Impala. However, who knows what would have been used if you drove into the dealer and had them install a rack on your new Nova in 1963.

No, that is not a standard roof rack for a first gen wagon. The standard one is much better looking than that. I will measure mine when I get home.

Yes, ditto on what Danno and Maniac said. The rack is also the same one used on Impala wagons, but much longer tubes. The feet of the rack are a nice design.

Mine measures, 46" x 53".

bbqrat, Can you take a close up picture of your roof rack. Also, can you measure your roof rack please.


I am thinking Dave is right about it being a Corvair roof rack because it is not as wide.


Thanks, Mark for measuring your roof rack.

Just to echo Danno, the 2nd Gen rack is:
- pointed at the corners,
- had frontward bows,
- the feet have a joints
- the feet bolts holes are front and back and not side to side.

I have an almost perfect 66/67 rack in the garage at home (with the 4 oe feet and 4 brand new feet). If it helps I can take detailed pictures ?!

1st gen Canada version rack, maybe ?!?! :confused: :confused:

HTH?
