New to group long time Nova owner
Just joined the group and glad to be with fellow Nova owners! I purchased my 69 Nova SS in 1971. It is a true SS but was pretty bear bones with no power steering and had a bench seat with a 3 speed manual on the floor. I accidentally ran in to the guy at a gas station who ordered it new in 69 and he explained why he ordered it bare bones and without the SS trim. He didn’t have a lot of money for options and didn’t like the way the trim looked! Over the years I’ve made many improvements including power steering, air conditioning, 4 wheel disk brakes, tilt wheel, power windows and door locks and yes I added the chrome trim. I did all the work myself and recently upgraded to a ZZ4 350 engine and Muncie trans. It now has the correct bucket seats and shifter console with custom gauges in the dash and console. HD suspension with front and rear sway bars make it fun to drive. I’ve been a car nut all my life and now that I am retired I can really enjoy the fruits of my labor. If I can answer any of your questions just let me know and thanks to all for keeping the car hobby alive!
