Nova Pro Street
SINISTER PROSTREET NOVA, BUILT 350, 500+ HP, ALUMINUM HEADS, COILOVERS, 2 QUICK
This 1971 Chevrolet Nova is one of the best-finished pro-street cars we've ever seen. While most are barely disguised race cars, this one is beautifully finished inside and out and definitely packs some serious horsepower deserving of the big, sticky tires out back.
A lot of pro-street cars focus on the going fast part of the equation, but the other half is making it user friendly and beautifully finished, and this car gets it right. The black paint is well done, offering a brilliant shine over some very straight bodywork. They obviously spent a lot of time smoothing things out and the shaved door handles, mirrors, windshield wipers, and emblems give it a sinister look that's very fitting. The two-door post body style is probably your best choice when you plan to channel a bunch of horsepower through it, so the doors fit well and probably will stay that way despite 500+ horsepower trying to twist it out of shape. The hood is very cleverly modified to fit the trick air cleaner assembly, so it has a unique look and clearance without resorting to a ho-hum cowl induction hood. But beyond that, the sheetmetal is quite stock. There's still a bit of chrome for contrast against the inky black paint, with front and rear bumpers in excellent shape and a blacked-out grille that emphasizes the Nova's clean design. At night, the headlights offer trick LED halos like high-end European cars, making this cool Nova really stand out.
The interior is civilized enough for street use, but the hardware is made for the track, which is the essence of pro-street. Racing buckets with harnesses, a full cage, and a big B&M shifter all scream race car. However, you'll note that the seat covers are leather, there are full carpets on the floor to control noise and heat, and a tilt steering column to make it easy to climb inside. A full array of instruments, including an Auto Meter Monster Tach, keeps an eye on the warmed-over small block up front and there are custom toggle switches for all the major components, including the fuel pumps, water pump, fans, and nitrous system. There's no radio, of course, but I don't think you'd use it even if you had one and in the trunk you'll find a fuel cell, battery box, and a big blue nitrous bottle that isn't just for show.
This car is not a just a poser, either, with a built 350 cubic inch V8 topped by Brodix aluminum heads, a big Holley double-pumper, and a beautifully designed and built nitrous system to feed it. Inside there's a big honkin' camshaft while 12.5:1 slugs ensure that every drop of fuel gets converted to speed. MSD supplied the brains behind it all, including a 6AL box and rev limiter. There's a giant aluminum radiator up front and that cool air cleaner isn't just for show, inhaling cool air from the nose instead of from under the hood. Long-tube headers feed a full 3-inch Flowmaster exhaust system with X-pipes and dumps and the suspension was built for combat, with a ladder bars and coil-overs in back supporting a 12-bolt full of 4.56 gears. A built PowerGlide 2-speed automatic transmission is the racer's choice and the chassis has been reinforced with a set of subframe connectors to keep it pointed straight. Traditional Weld Pro-Star wheels wear big-n-little Goodyear radials that are street-friendly but complete the look.
Beautifully built and insanely fast, this cool Nova nails pro-street in all the ways that matter. Call today!
