’66 Nova SS
Dennis Hellebusch
Washington, Missouri

Since The General never produced a Nova convertible in 1966, Dan Yates from St. Louis, Missouri, decided to build one. He took a four-door sedan as the donor car and installed a frame extension to keep the body from folding in half. Next, he installed a windshield and convertible top from an older Nova convertible and spent the next five years on his creation, which took over 5,000 hours to complete. Underhood is a 350hp 327ci that’s mated to a Turbo 400 and pushed by a set of 4.11:1 cogs out back.
