After a year and a half (on and off between other builds) I finally finished this build.

 

Wanted to do something different on this build... This 69 Chevy Nova as a straight six engine. Engine is from the "63" Trumpeter kit.

I love it Felix. A six and dog dishes. I like Super Sports, but most people I knew drove cars like this. And that's okay. It brings back fond memories. I once owned a plain light yellow '74 Buick Apollo with a six (Chevy 250) and dog dishes.

Nice job, it looks very "Stock", I remember that green.  The white walls make it look even more "Stock."  Love it!!

Having turned 21 in 1969 I've seen my share of Novas. All kinds, most were turned into some kind of street racer. Your 69 is refreshing and spot on. Great stuff.
