614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1967 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova was built to do only one thing - go fast! And with a dual-quad V8 with a supercharger on top it doesn't try to hide its speedy intentions, which means everyone will hide from you on the street and the strip.
Novas are great cars to start with as a Pro-Street custom build because they are small in size, light in weight, but big in stature. These coupes started life as the budget Chevys, but the upgrade to Mystic Teal delivers a sleek shine and plenty of metallic element to bring out the stylized creases GM put into this design. These were already an exercise in minimum chrome accents, and so painting the bumpers (now lightweight fiberglass) really gives this a sleek modern look. Of course, the pieces of chrome everyone will really be looking at is the set of stylized alloys by racing master Mickey Thompson. They can't help but draw attention to the massive rear racing tires and street-eating forward stance. We also can't talk about the exterior brightwork without addressing the elephant in the room, or more appropriately on the hood. The big air grabber adds a great stylized touch with plenty of polish, and more importantly, this piece sits above the hood like a big flag warning others not to mess with what's directly below it (more on that in a moment).
Open the door, and this Nova is a bit surprising. It's absolutely competition-ready, but it's also finished to quite a nice standard. For example, everything is done in a teal blue, including the racing seat with leather inserts. The custom door panels, full carpeting, and clean dash all have the thoughtful look of investments. And the Budnik steering wheel has a pattern that coordinates with the exterior wheel, and the leather wrapping matches the interior color. Of course, there are also the right professional pieces, like the Simpson racing harness, a full roll cage, and a center console with fire extinguisher mounted. The trunk continues the roll cage for extra bracing and carries the right pieces like the fuel cell and battery tray. The custom dash is full of crisp AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges and correct toggle switches. Your right hand is instantly attracted to the B&M ratchet shifter, and that goes great with the large tach mounted centrally on top of the dash.
Ok, we won't leave you in suspense any longer about the monster motor. That fiberglass hood lifts off completely so you can show off the show-worthy shine on all the components. It's a 355 cubic-inch small block V8 with a four-bolt main. It has some serious performance upgrades, including a Comp Cams package with camshaft, lifters, roller rockers, and double roller timing chain. And those dual Holley 600 CFM four-barrel carburetors feed the Weiand 671 blower for some serious power. The full package exhales through Hooker headers as the Borla exhaust makes a straight dash to exit in the middle of the car. This big muscle runs through a stout TH400 three-speed automatic with a 3500 RPM stall to keep you in the ideal powerband. All this muscle is then sent to a strong 12-inch rear. The final step to make sure all this power meets the pavement is the reinforced four-link rear and massive 33x21.5 Mickey Thompson sticky tires. Stopping is even well in hand with four-wheel power disc brakes.
This Nova is so mean, it's just barely enough on the right side of the law enough to get a license plate hung on the back. Are you the one to tame it? Call today!!!
