Tail Light Conversions

Would it be easy to replace the stock tail lights on a 1973 Chevy Nova with the New Euro Tail Lights. Do you think it would even look good?

They make euro tail lights for a Nova?

I would never have guessed they would make them euro style tail lights for a Nova. They just wouldn't look right, the stockers will look much better.

1973-1974 euro tail lights on nova

i for one think euro lights on a 73-74 nova would look pimped out, that is of coarse assuming that your paint will match the euros (like black paint or another really dark color).

I agree,I don't think that it would look good either.When that Nova was made,everything on the body was 'made to fit' so to speak.It's not like these newer cars.Everything was formed to fit the shape of the vehicle.Those Euro's would look terrible.Leave it stock .

I am in no way against customizing a vehicle for one's own taste. I, quite frankly, cannot immagine how you would go about making them look right on a car of that style, and YES the Nova was Style.

Even for us non Chebby people.

euros are for euros, or ricers.......



full clears might not be bad, with the right paint...of course, you would need 2 red reflectors for inspection purposes to be legal.....


(Nova lights are best left Nova for the most part)


I guess to answer the first question: if they make them for the Nova, then yes, they would replace the stock lights just by swapping them out.


The 2nd question: I would think not......but, hey, its your car, YOU need to answer that question.....
