Thanks, and yeah, I'm really looking forward to that moment, when the Chevelle is ready to race. Dad will drive few races first, then I will drive my license and then we can fight about who is driving the rest of those races. :lol: Here are few pics of the Chevelle-project: http://tapahtumakuvi...evelle Stocker/

And Wow, '64 Dodge would be very cool Stocker too, what engine is it running? Can't wait to see when you start building replica of it. B)

You managed to get me going again with my E/Stock Torino project.... I'll post few pics soon.


That Chevelle looks solid, not too much rust! Very cool project

My brother has a 426 Max Wedge is his '64 Dodge. Here's a pic of his car

I have most of the stuff needed to build the replica, I just need to work on the decals and find someone with an ALPS printer that could print them, because of the gold color...

I will be watching your Torino build!

Really nice job on this one I like the detail to the motor and underneath. By the way how did you make the electric fuel pump,filter and fuel preasure gauge?

John Pol


All scratchbuilt. Hard to explain how I did it, just found some good pics of the real things on the web and did my best to replicate them in 1/25 scale using Evergreen strips and Tamiya extra thin glue. Here's some pics of the scratchbuilt stuff I did for the Nova;

Autometer monster tach with shift light

Posted Image

Optima battery, Fram fuel filter and Holley electric fuel pump
Posted Image

CSR electric water pump
Posted Image

Headers extensions
Posted Image

Fire extinguisher
Posted Image

Other scratchbuilt items I did that I have no pics of are;

- Cal Tracs traction bars
- Frame connectors
- Fuel pressure regulator
- Radiator overflow tank
- Brake linelock
- Driveshaft loop

Scratchbuilding is new to me. It's surprising how some things looks harder to do than it actually is...

Here's a few pics of the interior before final assembly;

Very realistic and well detailed! A close friend of mine has a Nova Stocker and has set records in H/SA a number of times. He is also a model builder. I have to show him your fine build!

Very nice job !!! If I may make a couple of suggestions, Holley carb is on backwards and an HS would be a lower HP with a Quadrajet.

Nice work just the same!!

A 255hp 350 can run in F,G,or H Stock. As far as the Holley carb. being installed backwards.......it's not legal for Stock anyway! :unsure:

Yup, that's what I read in the NHRA rulebook, "G" being the natural class

And about the carb being on backwards, it is actually on the correct side, problem is that when I drilled the barrell holes and fabricated the choke tower, I did it on the wrong side :unsure:

Anyway, like you said, that carb is not legal for the Nova...

Now I was wondering what kit has a nice carb that would be correct for my Nova?

I've used Rochester carburetors from Revell Black Widow kit, they are maybe the easiest ones to get here in Finland. They're not 100% accurate, either, but much closer. In Revell '72 Olds kit, there should be correct Rochester carburetor, same thing with '86 Monte Carlo by Revell. I'm not sure about the Monte Carlo though, I have not seen one.

I soooooooo agree!

First off... I LOVE the look of this Nova! Amazing work... looks like something I would see at my local dragstrip and wouldnt mind driving/owning myself. AWESOME work man!

Yeah I would love to see a "How to" involving things like the fuel system components (filter, regulator, pump), water pump, line loc, and Cal Tracs.

Anyways... awesome work once again my man.
