Every time I hear “Chevy Nova”, all I can think of is “I remember you used to drive that crappy blue Chevy Nova. What are you driving now?”…”Same crappy blue Chevy Nova”. Now, if you’re a bit younger than me, you might need to look that one up! The Nova in this feature is not blue, and DEFINITELY not crappy. What it is, is a high calibre pro-touring build that started out as a quick re-paint, but quickly snowballed into a full SEMA award winning build.
Thanks to Kelly for submitting. Click here for more Pro Touring builds.
P.S. Thank you to all those who replied to my question in the previous post, I was overwhelmed with the amount of response and pleased to know that the site-hosted builds are appreciated.

The Roadster Shop are back again with another incredible build which just oozes copious amounts of talent. The last time I featured one of their metal sculptures it was an award winning ’62 Corvette. This time they’re keeping it in the GM family and are back with a ’67 Nova. The fabrication work in this build is completely mind blowing, it doesn’t even matter that the car isn’t finished yet, your jaw is still bound to drop once you see the new custom body-lines, all-metal interior work, subtle roof chop, the customised bonnet (hood) with clearances for airboxes built into the engine bay, and of course their Fast Track chassis. This build is just rife with details, make sure you check out the full thread.
This isn’t the first time a Nova has been featured, click here to see the others.

I don’t know if you guys have noticed but I like to feature a bit of everything here, from big dollar to small budget, high power to electric, cheque-book-built to DIY, fabricated to bolt-on, and so on and so on. If I had to put my money on it, I’d say the most popular builds would have to be a combination of the following elements; DIY, engine swaps, and some fabrication thrown in for good measure. This build features all of those plus some wow factor, a ’74 Chevy Nova with a 13B turbo Mazda rotary powering the wheels, submitted via email by Daniel. If this isn’t enough Chevy Nova action for you, check out another one featured previously on Build Threads by clicking here. On with the show…

When you see the words “Fesler Built” in the title of a build thread you know it’s going to be something special. Here’s a 1970 Chevy Nova that’s worlds apart from Axel Foley’s ride. The Pro-Touring boys certainly know how to piece a car together.
