You can buy just the wheel arch as a patch panel. Buy four if you plan to put any size rubber under it as you have to raise the arch and stretch it to fit anything big under a Nova.

You will need two for each side patch panels.

https://www.ss396.com/nova/RWA-X68K....SABEgJT8PD_BwE

hear is a rear wheel arch Modified to hold tire bigger than 28 inches tall.

Running a wide street tire requires surgery to the "frame", moving or eliminating leaf springs and relocating the shocks to inside the "frame".

Same as an earlier Chevy II four patch panels cut and welded to improve tire clerance.



Even a Funny Car tire (36-14.5x15) will fit if you modify the body.

Big Dave,


Do you know of any supplier that sells the "full" quarter panels for 73-74 Nova's? I have only been able to find full quarters for years prior to 73, but for the 73-74 the replacement quarters are 'notched' below the back window. I have a bad dent into the body lines right below the back window and really don't want to have to try and beat the metal out and use a ton of filler, ya know. I've attached some pictures to show what I mean. Thanks!

I don't understand the restrictions keeping the manufacturers from making the full quarter? The random 'cut-off' line on the quarters they supply must be an absolute chore to try and cut out of the car and then match up! It goes at a diagonal across the body lines and all! Who thought up that? haha?

That "dent" is a pressure crease caused by some one hitting your car in the rear end in the past and not repairing the damage. You probably have a lot of hidden damage under the car as well.

The car sat in my dad's backyard for a decade while I got my life together, . It was from my half brother catching a long football pass and his shoulder hitting it at practically full speed. I could still kill him for it to this day...
