Derek K’s 1963 Nova Wagon

Built From The Ground Up

Derek K’s 1963 Nova Wagon

Derek Kinler picked up this 1963 Nova Wagon from a friend in 2013 to use as a driver, and as an ongoing project. However, this wagon is quite the sleeper as it was originally built for racing.

It retains the inline 6 cylinder engine, with a 4 barrel carburetor and aftermarket headers. The 250ci inline 6 block has 230ci heads, aftermarket pistons, and a mild cam. The original transmission has been replaced by a TH700R4 for streetability.
