Nova 1970

Title Status --
Exterior Color Cortez Silver
Interior Color Gray


We often see cars from this era upgraded for raw power, but this 1970 Chevrolet Nova restomod is a bit different. There's plenty of added power from the upgraded V8, but since this is a modern fuel-injected LS1 motor, it also has a daily driver kind of potential. In fact, with an overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, updated interior, and cold-blowing A/C, this classic Chevy has all the appeal of a modern one.

Cortez Silver is a 1970-correct color, but this one has a sleeker and smoother shine that tells you that you're looking at a modern clearcoat application. It's impressive, but not too fancy to drive, and that seems to be this restomod's overall theme. It has nice classic details like the big chrome bumpers, SS grille, and a clean look to the sporty profile. And there are also the right well-integrated upgrades to announce this is an upgraded classic. You see it in the crystal-clear headlights and the cowl hood with subtle LS1 callouts. And the Torq Thrust wheels have a red line trim to draw added attention to the 18/20-inch front/rear sporty stance.

The interior goes for a clean and comfortable presentation. You can tell it's something different by the more modern upgrades. The seating is out of a 2004 Pontiac GTO, including the well-contoured front bucket seats. The center console with floor shift is borrowed from a 4th gen Camaro. You also have an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, cup holders, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The Grant GT sports steering wheel is on a tilt column, and so that means a good view to the AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauges.

The smooth inner walls and copper-colored covers make sure the engine bay is ready to be displayed. At the center is a 5.7-liter LS1 fuel-injected V8 borrowed from a first-year final-gen GTO. We're told it came out of a low mileage car and then rebuilt with a hotter cam before going into this Nova. And it certainly has the look, power, and rumble of a well-done performance powerhouse. And as you look through the engine bay, you'll notice nice components everywhere from the Optima red top battery to the headers. It was built with real driving in mind, and so you have a four-speed automatic transmission, Flaming River rack & pinion power steering, power brakes, and drilled & slotted front discs. There's only about 23,500 miles on the full build and that seems ideal. This has a lot of upgrades with the LS1 motor, an upgraded front suspension, QA1 coilovers, an overdrive transmission, and more. So it's nice to have a few years and a few miles under a caring owner who takes the time to dial-in these modifications. That's why you'll find this Nova fun for far more than just the occasional ice cream run.

This restomod is a stunner, a coddler, and a driver. That makes for an irresistible combination for those who want the ultimate Nova. Call today!!!
