Never knew. Interesting subject matter. How many Flintstones would it take to get it going?

A friend of mine in high school had a '68 4dr Nova with a 4cyl. It also had a seat and a steering wheel but that was about it! Very unusual car, cool subject though!

Just in case anyone missed it, the engine I am basing this on is the 6 cylinder from Trumpeter's 63 Nova. Thanks for the compliments guys.

The intake and exhaust manifolds have been cut, resized and reassembled. I hope to paint engine parts and start assembly next weekend. I only et a couple of hours on Saturdays for building, so progress will be slow. But this build is a primary one, so will be focusing on it.

I like it... Not all cars were pure muscle the plain Janes are a welcome sight to me makes ones collection more realistic in my opinion. I have several 6 cylinder projects to do once I find the engines for them.

As we say every time someone creates something cool.... You should've had it cast!
I can't wait to see it finished. It would be a treat to see it sitting on a show table and gauge the reactions of guys when they see the four in there!
