Fictional build of a 1972 Nova that would have competed in the super six division (today's late model) at Sun Valley Speedway (now Anderson Speedway) in Anderson, Indiana during the mid to late 1970 time frame. Although I did not begin attending races as a kid at the Speedway until the early 80's, I have always appreciated the older stock cars.

The build consists of an AMT Nova body and a very modified M P C chassis, with emphasis on the detail to replicate the early Howe chassis. The engine is a straight line 6 cylinder that was mandatory for this division back in the day to keep cost down. My goal was to capture the overall look of cars from the same time frame, in addition to the imperfections (my body and paint inability). Ha! And I wanted to demonstrate the steps from start to finish.

And the sponsors are or were actual businesses in Anderson, Indiana. Don's Body and Paint located on Main Street (fixed my first wreck just after receiving my drivers license), Arts Pizza located on 29th street (some of the best pie around), Joe Lee's Electrical Service and Supply (a friend of my father who was an electrician), and Hunter's Automotive (fictional business incorporated from my imagination).

I now reside in the Nashville, Tennessee area but often times reflect back on my childhood memories of Anderson Speedway and the 1/4 mile bullring that kick started my interest and hobby of building.

Hope that you enjoy viewing...as much as I enjoy the other builds on this forum.

Very nice build! Looks like the paint is still wet! Couple of laps in the bullring should take care of that! fbr :)))
