1969 Chevy Nova - Aug 2015

This 69 Nova came to us in great shape given it's 100208 miles.  It's an original 6-cylinder 3-speed manual with a floor shift!!!  It's all there under the hood, just not that pretty anymore.  The body was just painted and is completely rust free (this was a west-Texas car).  The interior is all there, but the steering wheel doesn't match - it's a Oldsmobile wheel.  Plans call for SS style stripes, all new interior and a complete detailing of the engine bay back to original.

Here's how it arrived...

First business was new stripes..

Outside is looking good...

Engine bay needed a serious cleaning so Scotlea did one of it's signature engine bay restorations.  Starting by stripping it down and getting it clean, then repainting each piece just the way the factory intended.

The interior suffered from neglect too, so it got the only rust patch needed - under the drivers feet.  Then came new carpet, headliner, sun visors, gauge panel, seats, steering wheel, package tray; and topped it off with a Custom Autosound stereo that looks like the original AM radio but is actually FM stereo.

Finally, the trunk - it was the best part of the whole car because it looks almost new...
