Yes, many companies sell adapter kits for head units, it a plastic casing that actually hold the headunit in place, just go to a audio store or a place that sells car audio and ask about them, they should be able to help, if not one for a 63 nova I'm sure you could find one for a different year/model car thar could work with a little persuasion.

You can buy sheet styrene plastic from any hobby store, there are even textured types so you might find a style that would look factory. Just be sure to buy some model spray paint to paint it with, regular laquer or enamel paint contain petroleum solvents that will melt styrene. I used sheet rubber once and it looked good also but I had to back it with aluminum sheet. If you want you could use aluminum sheet too, use a scotchbrite pad to give it a brushed finish. There are a million possibilities.

Here's a few links of some online suppliers.

Go to a boat shop they sell boxes for boats that will mount up. They have the cut outs for Din Radioes. That is what I put in My truck. Mounted back under the dash so it isn't seen well. Can send pics if ya want to see it. javascript: x()
