If you wanted a super sleeper in 1969, this probably would have been your best bet. A big block engine in a very plain package. You would have surprised nearly everyone in their hot Camaro or 'Cuda.

This is the relatively new Revell 1969 Nova kit, but boy does this one look plain jane. No “SS” grille, poverty hubcaps, and a plain round mirror on the driver’s side door. Furthermore, there’s a plain flat hood, too.
The “SS” grille is actually still in the kit, as is the rear bumper with SS trim, but of course you get the plain versions of each of these as well.
Inside the car, the platform interio features easy to detail door panels. The front seat is a split bench, although the buckets from earlier releases of this kit are still in there, too. The rear seat is separate. The steering wheel appears to be an SS item, according to the emblem in the center. The steering column has the ignition as well as a turn signal lever.
The engine is beautiful. Nearly everything is separate and with some careful detailing, this can be a contest winner. The chassis looks very good. There is a copyright on the frame rail, but it should be very easy to remove. The exhaust is two piece. Suspension detail is excellent. The poverty hubcaps mount to plain steel wheels which also have lug nut detail.
Decals include the speedometer, body pinstripes, body emblems, two sets of license lpates, tire stripes in both red and white, and fender callouts/air cleaner decals for both 396 and 427 engines.
