Nice work on that Nova!
I had a 1:1 1967 Nova Wagon in the 1980's when I was living in Michigan. The car had documents that indicated time spent in Utah. So relatively rust free right? Within three years there were rust holes through the top of the fenders near the windshield/cowl area. That happened no matter what I did to try and prevent it. It was white with blue interior. I changed it to red with black interior. Added Cragars. Six banger with the Powerglide. Reliable, and looked cool. I love wagons. But it was so loud on the expressway I could not hear the radio. I learned about inexpensive cars with it. Long forgotten the buy and sell figures.
I'm building two of the AMT '66 Novas right now (no idea how that came about). In doing research for colors and details I'm starting to think it is really a '67. The trunk chrome is '67 and a quick look at the grille makes me think that is true also? Anyone care to verify that?
Also the rear window trim detail seems a little soft. At any rate I'm impressed with the under-hood detail, interior and the engine. Thanks for the heads up on the too tall carb!
