This 1970 Chevrolet Nova is a unique blend of muscle car and restomod. It takes the big power Nova idea and brings it into the modern age with a fuel-injected and turbocharged LS-based V8. And as you look at the upgrades to the body, suspension, and interior, you can see a custom that was thoughtfully constructed to be distinct.
The ways this Nova is different starts with the paint. It's a 2020 application of a color best described as "Blurple" because it often looks like a deep blue, but you get it out in the sunlight, and it has a purple-like radiance. So it never gets mistaken for the kind of finish that comes from the factory. Of course, that's far from the only deviation from stock. It's a truly intimidating machine with the side of the power dome in the cowl hood. And the RC Comp Hammer S wheels are an expensive addition, but they are worth it for their strength and style. Plus, they help draw attention to the awesome forward-leaning stance and extra-wide rear rubber. And while this one is bold and aggressive, you also can see it also likes getting noticed for being a quality classic. The crystal clear headlights, bright chrome bumpers, and overall good body panel fit is part of this car's memorable presentation.
The interior is dark and stylish. Pieces like the bench seat and wood-like trim seem very stock and untouched. It's kind of nice just because it feels like this Nova stays in touch with its classic car roots. But as you turn it on, the true nature of the beast really awakens. The classic wide speedometer has a bright and modern glow. The same goes for the factory-style tach. And where there used to just be filler space on the gauge panel now has been upgraded to a full digital readout setup. The TCI floor shifter is the kind of professional product we love on an upgraded Nova like this, but the Leash Electronics boost controller lets you know that there's something extra special under the hood.
You'll be showing off the engine bay just to showcase the full power build. This is a 6.0-liter V8 there we're told was rebuilt with LS9 internals, including the head gaskets, lifters, pistons, and crank. It also has modified LS3 heads, a Melling high volume oil pump, and Holley Sniper high rise intake with 80 lb injectors. And the On3 88mm performance turbocharger boosts the whole power package into the stratosphere. It's supported by the right pieces, like an aluminum radiator with electric fan and an Optima battery placed in the trunk for ideal weight distribution. As you look underneath, you'll spot the upgraded tubular A-arm independent front end, subframe connectors, and CalTrac bars. And making sure all this power gets to the pavement is a Ford 9-inch rear with 4.10 gear and those wide Mickey Thompson street slicks. The overall impression you'll get of this one is that it's built to be a solid performer, but you'll also appreciate how it's a solid overall driver. For example, the four-speed automatic transmission is built with a stall for a better powerband, but it's not so high that it eliminates a full rev range. And that transmission also has overdrive that will genuinely cruise on the highway. A new power steering system, power brakes, and front discs with drilled & slotted rotors make for a good all-around cruising package.
