That is a really nice build.  Very clean, just enough detail.  I would be happy to have that on my shelf.

I really like this! Funny how the more mainstream cars become head-turners over the years.

Thank you Bob... I got the straight six from the italeri 64 Nova kit.


Beautiful. Do you mean a Trumpeters 63 Nova? As far as I know Italeri did not do a 64 Nova. Also, your marker light decal says 307. The 6 is a 250.

Oops my bad, you are correct Lee, it's the Trumpeters 63 Nova. Yeah, I could not find decals with the 250 marker, so I just used the ones that the kit came with.

Now that's what I'm talking about!  A true replica stock build, really nice work.

Well done and very nostalgic. This is how they were for the first several years. I don't recall seeing them rodded out on the street until they became more affordable to the average driveway car guy a few years later. That six makes it ring true.

The 6 cylinder; do you mean the '63 Trumpeter kit? I looked for a italeri 64 Nova and couldn't find one.

 

Very nice build

Very nice.  Did you split the exhaust manifold to get the dual exhaust?

Thank you everyone for the very kind comments. This was one build I wanted to complete a year or so ago but other builds got in the way. I'm very happy on the way it came out.

Felix, it is an outstanding job. Nice touch with those brake lines.

 

You might be able to find or make a 250 decal for the front marker light. Most years the six emblem doesn't exist.
