Production of the steel 1966-1967 Chevy II Nova two-door hardtop started this week at Real Deal Steel headquarters in Sanford, Florida. The first produced model is set to embark to Las Vegas in October for the Nov. 1-4 SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The car will be displayed in the company’s booth.

Real Deal Steel published the below photos documenting the build’s progress.

Approximately 60 individual steel components are used to assemble the hardtop bodies. Prices on the Nova bodies range from $11,600 for bare skeletons to $16,400 for a fully optioned body, according to Real Deal Steel.

Because the 1966-1967 Novas utilized a unibody/front-subframe design, a wide array of aftermarket options (as well as stock front assemblies) allow customers to build their favorite Nova hardtop, from bone-stock to pro-touring or old-school gasser styles.

The Real Deal Steel bodies can be ordered with wider rear wheel wells to accept larger wheel/tire combos as well as floors set up for bench or bucket seats and floor shift automatic or standard, according to the company.
