This is Kirk Husselman's 1968 Chevy II Nova currently under construction. He accquired it in May of 2000 and has done quite a few things to enhance her beauty. The first thing was to change the bumper (which was 1970 Nova fiberglass bumper) to the correct chrome 1968 bumper. He also installed new tires with Crager SS wheels. It's currently in the shop for a new paint job. The interior is in perfect condition expect for the driver side arm rest pad. The next thing kirk wants to do is modify under the hood. It currently has a Chevy 305 from a 1986 Monte Carlo.
