PROBUILT SINISTER '66, STRONG 383 STROKER, ALUMINUM HEADS, TUBULAR A-ARMS, 18'S!
Pro Touring is about no compromises, and this incredible 1966 Chevy Nova is a prime example. With a thumping 383 cubic inch small block, a suspension hunkered down over gorgeous 18-inch alloys, and a gorgeous interior, it's obvious that no corners were cut in the construction.
The crisp Nova body has always been popular with hot rodders; heck, even the factory got into the act when they stuffed a potent L79 Corvette motor under the hood and created one of the most predatory sleepers ever. Rendered in sinister black, most folks take one look at the sleek, clean lines and figure that it has to be modified, but it isn't. Aside from the cowl induction hood, the rest of the car is original GM steel, and even most of the trim remains intact, including the, grille, door handles, emblems, and bright chrome bumpers front and rear. The deep paint is dazzling in the sunlight, and you can imagine how the heads will turn when you prowl into the parking lot behind the wheel of this one. It might show a few very, very minor signs of use, but the overall look is clean, slick, and very nicely done. It more than lives up to the expectations made by the price tag.
The matching black interior takes the original design and treats it with respect. The wide front bench is pretty stock and wears replacement seat covers that pretty much duplicate the OEM look. Black carpets and reproduction door panels add to the showroom-fresh vibe as well as helping to disguise the beast that lives underneath. Upgrades include a thick three-spoke steering wheel, a full set of Auto Meter gauges neatly built into a custom panel, and a ratcheting B&M shifter on the floor, which manages a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. Open the trunk for a back-to-basics look, but it is beautifully finished with correct spatter paint and a reproduction mat for a very correct look.
One turn of the key will convince you that the money was spent in the right place, because this 383 cubic inch stroker motor cackles and snarls. Full of goodies like a set of GM aluminum heads, a Holley double pumper carburetor, an upgraded cam, and a high rise intake, it loves to rev but pulls with big block-like torque. It has clearly been dressed to look purposeful, with aluminum castings and hidden wiring and plumbing, all of which was done with aesthetics in mind. A big aluminum radiator helps keep it nice and cool, even when you're in traffic, and even with the big cam, it never seems fussy. The front suspension is augmented by tubular A-arms, while out back there's a set of monoleaf springs and traction bars. A TH350 sends thrust back to a 12-bolt full of 3.73 gears on a Posi limited slIp, and it rides on a set of gorgeous 18-inch Billet Specialties wheels inside 245/40/18 performance radials for a true Pro Touring look.
