The 1970 Chevrolet Nova featured here is a classic built Hot Rod. This clean build is well sorted and runs strong and looks fantastic. The custom Blue Metallic finish is professionally applied over well implemented body work and has been polished to a deep luster. The front and rear bumpers have been re-chromed, and all stainless-steel trim and grille work have been either restored or replaced with new parts to shine brightly. Super Sport emblems have been placed on the front grille and rear tail panel treatment and a steel cowl induction hood has been installed.
Inside the cabin is pure business. An aftermarket 4 spoke faux leather wrapped aluminum steering wheel frames the custom AutoMeter Dash Panel filled with full instrumentation including, speedometer, tachometer, oil pressure, temperature, voltmeter, and fuel gauge. Gear selection is handled by a floor mounted B&M Pro Ratchet Shifter and a dash mounted shift light is right at eye level to help you hit those shift points at just the right time. The black interior has been completely restored with new carpet, headliner, seat upholstery, door panels and dash pad. The trunk is clean and restored including new vinyl trunk mat.
This Nova left the Willow Run plant in Southeast Michigan originally as a V8 however now a 383 bored and stroked V8 motor has since been placed between the frame rails. This motor has been topped with a Weber carburetor with electric choke and Performer aluminum manifold fed by a dual inlet Spectra polished aluminum air intake. A set of Edelbrock aluminum heads cap the combustion chambers and an MSD electronic ignition lights the fuel mixture. The spent gases flow into ceramic coated headers that flow through a 2.5” dual exhaust system with “H” pipe and rear transverse mounted cross flow chambered muffler. The engine compartment is well detailed and features finned aluminum valve covers, chrome pulley belts and stainless coolant hose covering to add some shine under the hood. This hot set up is kept cool with a custom aluminum radiator and electric fan. The wiring system has been completely rewired from bumper to bumper using a Painless Wiring kit.
The underbody has been completely gone through with a rebuilt front suspension and steering that is power assisted. A brand-new complete power assisted four-wheel disc brake system was installed along with all new fuel and brake lines. The floorboards and frame rails are clean and free of any rust with no indications of any collision repair. Subframe rigidity has reinforced with subframe connectors, and a set of traction bars prevent spring wind up under hard acceleration from a start keeping the tires firmly planted on the pavement. Power is transferred from the V8 powerplant through a GM400 Turbo-hydramatic 3 speed automatic transmission to a custom Ford 9” rear differential. The combination rolls on a set of BF Goodrich T/A radial tires mounted on American Racing Torg Thrust 5 spoke 15 X 7 polished alloy wheels.
This classic hot rod has been completely rebuilt and restored and is turn-key ready to cruise your hometown main drag or cruise into a local cars and coffee event. With its deep rumbling exhaust note and stunning presentation, this Nova is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thanks for looking.
