Imagine tooling along the highway and seeing this 1970 Chevrolet Nova coming up behind you. It's a pulse quickener, and certainly a novel one. Its high impact appearance combines the model's overall factory configuration with some well-chosen modifications to give it a look all its own and combine with boundless big block power to make this classic one helluva ride.
There's no mistaking the identity of one of America's best-known vintage muscle car, and yet this particular Nova looks unlike any other. It sports an ultra- aggressive color scheme, including blackened bumpers both fore and aft, as well as a sizable hood scoop to serve notice that some serious power lies just beneath - which is no idle boast, in this case. Minimal badging and an inclined stance add to the visual impact, which comes at no compromise to this Chevy's fit and finish - in the midst of the modifications are window and light trim that appear very fresh and surround clear cabin glass, and the exterior alignment is also in good order. Circle the car to get a better view of things and you'll see no blemishes of note and any minor water spots will come out easily with a comprehensive detailing that's sure to elevate this classic to well within the vicinity of show quality curb appeal.
Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by an interior that's been thoroughly refreshed while retaining an overall stock sensibility, with just a couple of aftermarket upgrades blended into the mix to amp things up. The black vinyl bench seats in both front and back are in top form - they show all the hallmarks of a recent restoration, with no discoloration or creasing on their covers as they loom above carpeting that's in matching condition. The aftermarket Momo steering wheel blends nicely with its surroundings, and just a little farther forward the dash area is another strong feature, with a new pad running across its top and clear, functional gauges in the instrument cluster that are joined by a trio of aftermarket counterparts just above the shifter. Raise the deck lid and you'll see that the trunk area received plenty of attention to bring it up to speed as well, with fresh carpet on its floor and a new rubber seal in place to keep the elements from intruding.
Rest assured that this Chevy packs more than enough power to back up the bold statement made by its exterior. There's a 454 cubic inch V8 at the center of the engine compartment, dressed up with a chrome air cleaner and billet serpentine pulley system. It's been armed with an Edelbrock intake manifold and Holley double pumper 4-barrel carb to take full advantage of its considerable displacement and exhales into a pair of long tube headers leading to a 3” exhaust to create a deep, resonant sound serving notice of this classic's arrival. Upgraded plug wires help bring maximum spark to the cylinders, while a sizable aluminum radiator and electric fan take their places up front to keep operating temperatures in check. The big block pairs with a fortified automatic transmission that's shifting smoothly to make for a drivetrain that offers g-force inducing performance. Tubular control arms have been added for enhanced adjustability and improved caster, and power brakes - with discs up front - bring fade resistant stops as this skillfully modified Chevy cruises on its set of color matched steel wheels with chrome hub caps that sport beefy Vanderbilt Turbo Tech tires.
