Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1970 Chevrolet Nova Pro Street was built to do only one thing - go fast! And with a performance-built big block V8, huge rear tires, and bold red paint, it doesn't try to hide its speedy intentions... which means everyone will hide from you on the street and the strip.
Novas have always been a great place to start for a speed machine kind of custom because these were born with a lightweight nature that doesn't leave out a substantial presence. And the muscular lines of the sheetmetal get noticed even more when they are finished in a bright red. Of course, this one also has an unmistakable race-ready upgrades style with the huge cowl induction hood leading the way and a wheelie bar out back. Plus, the seriously meaty rear tires on Billet Specialties wheels give this a menacing stance. It even does a good job of impressing with the details like the front spoiler, half-moon headlights, and a clean and shining overall look of a well-done classic.
The full black interior continues the right attitude. The door panels, dash, and other fundamentals have a clean look, but what you really notice are the competition-ready features. You instantly see it with the ProCar seats, Netami harnesses, and a proper roll cage. Unnecessary or misplaced is always the enemy. That's why you have a rear seat delete and items like the fuel cell and the battery are in the trunk. You get a grippy Grant GT sports steering wheel, and beyond that is the full AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauge package, including the large speedo and tach. And the TCI Outlaw ratchet shifter gives you firm control over it all.
As great as everything else is, it's what in the engine bay that you're going to love most about this powerful Nova. The 454 cubic-inch V8 has been bored .10 over to 476ci total. This is a tidy setup that you can tell was built for serious power. It has been enhanced and fortified with 14:1 compression, Brodix aluminum heads, Brodix HV 2007 Series Intake, and topped with a massive Quick Fuel FX-4700 1050 CFM carburetor. The whole setup was built to be stout, and this includes the fabricated valve covers, an aluminum radiator, steel-braided lines, AN fittings, and Assault Racing Products electric water pump. Plus, the long tube headers add even more power while also contributing to the thunder of the dual exhaust that exists underneath this car. And since this runs on race fuel, you know it has a sweet smell to go with the sound. The Powerglide transmission is a quarter-mile runner's favorite, and it's a manual valve body unit for full control. This feeds a 12-bolt rear end with 4.10 gears for quick take-offs. This was built to put serious power to the ground. That's why you have those wide Mickey Thompson tires in the rear. Plus, there's a ladder bar rear end with diagonal link and adjustable coilovers. And there are other great upgrades like frame connectors, tubular front A-arms, and drilled & slotted front disc brakes.
This Nova is so mean that it's just barely on the right side of the law enough to get a license plate hung on the back. So you know you want it. Call today!!!
