Steve Sanford. '63 Chevy Nova station wagon

I usually have a bunch of magazine references scattered about my drawing board when I'm working on a design concept, and this time I happened to have a VW book and a Nova magazine out when my mind wandered.... What if you crossed a Nova wagon with a Deluxe Bus...? Just some trim details here and there to get the spirit of a Bus on the Nova? Why...? You know me. Why not?
A roof rack, a full-length canvas sunroof, and VW door handles gets the party started. Then I added the taillights and license surround from the Bus at the rear of the Nova for a surprisingly natural fit. Nova SS beltline trim frames the VW influenced two-tone paint scheme.
The interior features a Porsche 356 steering wheel, and a simple European influenced upholstery pattern, and German square -weave gray carpet lines the floor. A floor shifter from a Beetle would be cool.
Radical lowering is a must, and the chromed Fuchs wheels lend a heavily German look to the rolling stock.
The powerplant can be a small-block Chevy, or a straight six, even. Either way, I think a set of Weber IDA carbs would be in keeping with the 'Cal Look' VW theme.
So of course, we'll call this mash-up a "Cal-Nova" wagon...
