Notice there is not even a hood scoop. 
I borrowed the hood off my neighbor's 
68 Nova street car for the weekend, painted it white, 
then painted it maroon again and returned it.  

This is a great example of how fast muscle cars were
in the late 60's, early 70's. With no more than a cam, 
headers, tuning and a some minor suspension work,
a 10 second street car was possible back then.
