1974 Chevy Nova Project - Part 1
Found some old footage of my Nova before I sold it. I put a lot of work into it to get it back on the road and drivable, but in the end I couldn't afford to keep it and my jeep, with no place to work on either one. It's a 74 with a 250 straight 6 and an automatic. Basic, with no options, but the body was straight except for minor rust in the lower fenders.
