    That's two Chevette's and a 'homologation' Nova 1.3 Sport running on twin Webers (or it would have been when first registered)
    The Nova came with a single Pieburg carb, and Irmischer UK (GM tuning company) sent the 'Sport' pack to the dealership - fitted after registration.
    pre-jetted pair of Webers, different rear exhaust back box, and various pipes, cables, and brackets, so that everything fitted.

    As Griff says, the Nova is the special car Phil.

    I'm having a bit of bother getting my head round the words "Nova" and "special" being in the same sentence. Unless it's describing the average driver, when you'd normally see "needs" in there as well.

    Although, I'm informed by Someone Who Knows About These Things that a Nova Sport is supposedly quite desirable these days. But then, he's got an MGB, so...

    If you must know - my first car, at the age of 12 was this 50 beauty... Complete with electrician's tape go faster stripes to aid my travels around the small field I learned to drive in. Boy was I cool

    Already spoken to John

    Sadly I've done a bit more research since (There is a great deal of info on the Nova Sport Register website!) and it's engineless and probably too far gone, realistically... I've got enough on my plate!
