63 Nova SS 1/18 Diecast Model


I have this "barn find" (lots of dust on it) Nova for sale. What you see is what you get. I don't have the box, and the rear antenna is broken off, I'm not sure when that even happened but I do have the broken off piece. I never realized the right tailight bezel was missing and I can't find it I'm afraid.

I'm thinking $25 plus actual shipping costs? I see them in the box (and maybe with antenna intact) for a LOT more money on ebay.

Thats cool as a 6 cyl.  far to often models are always depicting the high performance stuff, never a base model.

Only as a dealer installed option and apparently very few were converted.

Because they only offered a convert in 62-63 and never after that, the only way you could ever have a Nova/Acadian V8 convertible was by doing a conversion.

Were these dealer conversions sanctioned by GM?

One of the car magazines did a story on the GM swap kit. I can't find it using Google but I know I've seen the article posted online somewhere. It's a good read.

Interesting side note-

Around 1974, 3 different guys from my little town bought 350 horse 327 short blocks brand new from GM, all about the same time. For those of you who know the first generation Acadians/Novas, if you want to put a small block into a 62-67 Acadian/Nova and use a manual trans, you need a special block because the ball for the clutch linkage mounts in a spot that is unique to these Novas. The engine end of the Z bar mounts much lower and farther forward on a Acadian/Nova block than on any other model. When these 327s arrived from GM, they had a special bracket that GM had made installed on the block. None of these 3 engines went into a car that needed that bracket but those of us into the Acadians and Novas sure took note of this bracket and a number of us copied the design over the years when we needed something for our own cars. (I think I still have one somewhere that I made). Up until that point, any of us who had put a manual trans into one of these cars had fought with that linkage and it was always a fail. We never managed to get the geometry right and the clutch pedal never felt right, plus the linkage was always breaking because the geometry was wrong.

Google Chrome had issues with the link on my computer, I had to use IE to make it work right. 

Love this picture of the swap kit!

Hey Bob. I wonder where the second tail pipe is? Frank says Cheap buggers are telling us to use the one we cut off with your hacksaw!

Yes, noticeably absent is the oil pan, dipstick and tube, oil pump and pickup tube.

I know guys who tried the sledge hammer route, that never worked out very well for them!
