SHOW QUALITY, LASER STRAIGHT, BUILT 327, TUNNEL RAM, AWESOME PRO STREET!
If you're going to paint a car bright yellow like this 1963 Chevrolet Nova, you'd better be able to back it up with solid performance. Well, never fear because this Pro-Street Chevy II delivers big power and massive acceleration to go with its extroverted personality.
Built from the ground up as a take-no-prisoners Pro-Street beast, this car is more than just a big engine connected to big tires. In fact, it has enjoyed a comprehensive restoration that's comparable to any show car, stripped to bare metal and practically rebuilt at the molecular level. Professionally built and with just over 2600 since it was completed, it still stops traffic everywhere it goes. The bodywork was expertly done so that not only is it laser-straight, but the modifications to accommodate the various upgrades are virtually invisible. Paint is two-stage urethane with an impossible shine and a glow that's so bright you'll shield your eyes the first time you see it in the sunlight. Aside from the hole in the hood, the bodywork sticks to the factory design, complete right down to the chrome bumpers and minimalist trim that was a trademark of the low-priced Chevy.
The interior is pretty far removed from stock, starting with that beefy roll cage that's a requirement for any self-respecting Pro-Street machine. Wrap-around buckets grab you and firmly hold you in place, augmented by a set of 5-point belts for both driver and passenger. The factory dash is technically still there, but a billet insert holds an insanely complete array of carbon fiber Auto Meter Ultra Light instruments, along with a Monster Tach up high on top where it's easy to see in the heat of combat. A beautiful leather-wrapped steering wheel isn't flashy but sure looks awesome, and mounted on a tilt column, it's easy to get comfortable. A custom center console holds the AM/FM/CD stereo and its associated speakers (there's a pair of 6x9s on the rear package shelf, too) as well as the flip-up switches for firing the beast itself. There's also an amplifier and a shotgun subwoofer mounted between the wheel tubs where the back seat used to live, and the surprising thing is how nicely finished it all is. Despite the racecar hardware, this sucker's really comfortable on the street. Even the trunk is neatly done with a custom fuel cell and rear-mounted battery.
The engine is an over-achieving 327 cubic inch small block. Stuffed with a steel crank, forged rods, a full roller valvetrain, and 11:1 compression, it cackles like a full-race piece on steroids. Twin Holley 450s on a tunnel ram make that hole in the hood totally necessary, and it spins to dizzying speeds without apparent strain. The suspension is a custom tubular setup in front and a 4-link out back, complete with coil-overs all around. A TCI manual valve body TH350 3-speed automatic with a Boss Hogg 3500 RPM stall converter snaps off shifts like rifle shots and feeds a Currie 9-inch full of 3.50 gears. Weld wheels with skinny MT Sportsman tires up front and 29x18.5-15 Hoosier meats out back complete the wild Pro-Street stance.
Yeah, it's fast. It's also beautiful inside and out. If you want a brand-new build that's done to an exceptionally high level and pays tribute to the awesomeness that is Pro-Street, this is an A-ticket ride. Call today!
