This 1971 Chevrolet Nova is exactly what you want in a muscle car. It has a mean stance, great chrome, and HUGE power. Best of all, this Nova has a sleeper-like look that will fool some at the stoplights, but it has so many custom touches that real enthusiasts instantly know how cool this coupe really is.

This Nova is a serious contender from every angle. Up front is the SS badge on the intimidating blacked-out grille and the black hood with power bulge. It's got that perfect profile with a hint of aggressive forward-leaning stance. Plus, the SS stripes on the trunk go perfectly with the black SS rear panel. Backing up this intimidating appearance is the knowledge that the Nova is one of the best cars for the street or dragstrip, because they are the perfect combination of a compact/lightweight coupe that was built with the same stout parts as Chevy's other larger muscle cars. Even with this aggressive attitude there is still room for some brightwork on this American classic in distinctive places like the bumpers, rocker panels, and of course, the bold REV Torque Thrust wheels.

The interior is every bit as nicely finished, with high back bucket seats, fresh carpeting, and great-looking door panels that include wood inserts. While this is comfortable for all five occupants, this Nova is clearly a driver's car. The custom gauge AutoMeter gauge panel has readouts for all the important information, including the large tach and speedo. And your right hand may never want to leave the comfort of the B&M performance shifter. These are some clear indications that there is something special in the engine bay.

When you pop the hood you can tell this is no ordinary small block V8. The ultra clean wire and hose setup ensures everyone got a good look at this 383 cubic-inch stroker motor. Beyond just looking good with the big air filter and Chevy Performance valve covers, it was specially built to run with performance goodies such as roller camshaft, roller rockers, MSD ignition, and four-barrel carburetor. The Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads and intake are nearly new, with only about 2,500 miles on them since installation. The V8 exhales deeply through long tub headers that are connected to a dual exhaust which growls while it exits beneath this coupe. So you're putting down some serious power, which is why the rest of the components are there to back it up. It starts with the stout 700R4 four-speed overdrive automatic transmission with a 3,000 RPM stall converter to keep you in the ideal powerband. An excellent transmission to cruise at highway speeds too. All of this gets sent to a GM Positraction 10-bolt rear end running a versatile 3.55 ratio. The final piece of the package that keeps you in control of the power is a front suspension that includes new Detroit Speed springs and spindles, as well as disc brakes.

This is a Nova that has such a beast under the hood that it easily backs up its pavement-eating appearance (and there's even plenty of restoration receipts, maintenance records, and the owner's manual so you can be confident in all the work.) It's amazing that a classic coupe delivering all this performance can be picked up for under $25K. Don't today!!
