Blake Hughes' 1966 Chevrolet Nova Wagon - Torque

By , Photography by

Interior: It is all stock except for the gauges that are mounted in the factory Kleenex box under the dash. There are two batteries mounted in a custom box in the rear to handle the cranking amps required to turn over the engine.

Suspension: The air springs are from a RideTech Shock-Wave kit they found used on Craigslist for $500. The air valves and compressors are hidden behind the back seat in a set of eBay suitcases. "They even smell old."

Cool handmade stuff: Blake hand-fabbed the fuel tank that holds 26 gallons of diesel fuel. A Holley Blue is used to pump the diesel to the engine-driven CP3 injection pump.

Paint: Paint and body are courtesy of the factory Aztec Bronze and the endless California sun.
