1976 Chevy Nova Street / Strip Update: 2014/8.12

30 July 2014 - 03:27 PM

With things coming up close to a couple of projects needing paint. I figured I'm pull this one on out of the dust.

 

Well, I bought this AMT/ERTL 1976 Nova Hatchback about 6 years ago along with a couple of other kits for $1.50 at a yard sale. The doors and hatch were already opened, a few fiddly bits were off the sprue but nothing really assembled. So, I'm going to try my best from memory to build the one of 2 1976 Novas I had. One being a Hatchback the other a 2 door Sedan. So lets get started shall we?

First Box Shot along with the kit and various parts.

Trying to figure out stance. The front is almost spot on, rear needs a tad bit of work.

Empty Bay! Lots of potential, now if I can find the right engine in my spares.

I dug around in my spares box and found some better tires (front and rear) than the lethargic tires that came in the kit. Something a lot meatier like what I had on my Nova.
