To start off, this super solid 1970 Nova was located and stripped to bare metal. The paint was done in Chevrolet's Tuxedo Black then wetsanded and buffed to a mirror finish. Take a good look at the photos, this is a very nice car. The door, trunk jams, and hood trim areas were all done right. The bumpers were replaced of course along with a host of other trim panels. The previous owner spent a reported $15,000 on the body work then additional $4,500 to have the car sprayed using all PPG products. To keep the beautiful body straight, quality weld in sub-frame connecters were installed. These are the good units that fit through the floor. They have been perimeter welded and sealed. The installation looks factory. In the trunk you can easily see the metal artwork. The inner wheel houses were traded out with mini tubs from Detroit Speed. The rear shock towers were then braced with a Detroit Speed X-member. Take a look at the photos, these were installed by a true metal artist. Inside the interior has been restored with a host of restoration quality components. The upholstery was brought up to shape with new carpet, door panels, headliner, dashpad and more. The factory gauges were all replaced with an excellent fitting aftermarket instrument bezel. It is filled with Autometer Sport Comp Gauges including the speedometer, tachometer, fuel, temp, volts & oil pressure. The bucket seats are quite comfortable and hold you in much better than the stock units. In between the seats, a custom console houses the line lock control tastefully actuated by a lit rocker switch. 3-Pojnt retractable seat belts have been added for extra safety. A 4-Point roll bar was nicely installed adding the extra safety needed for a car with this power. Under the hood is where the heart of this beast lives. A 400 small block has been fitted with Manley Rods, SRP Forged pistons with 10.3/1 compression, Comp Hydraulic Roller camshaft, Comp Roller Rocker arms, fully ported Edelbrock 200cc aluminum heads, Edelbrock Performer RPM air gap, Hooker ceramic coated headers, and more. March pulleys and brackets provide easy adjustments and just look good. An electric fan keeps the system cool. Full MSD ignition keeps the fire lit. The engine has low miles on the build. It fires up with serious authority and has the perfect Muscle Car idle. This motor makes power everywhere and it just gets better as the tach climbs. The 295s out back are simply no match for this monster. Since automatics can be boring, this Nova was fitted with a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed. This Tremec shifts like a dream with nice, crisp & positive shifts. It can also handle all the power this engine makes, even when driven like the Devil himself intended. The installation was done correctly and the car will only start in neutral, a very nice safety feature and a testament to the quality and thoroughness this car was built with. It is bolted to the engine via a titanium alloy bellhousing. The clutch system is hydraulic with a 550 horsepower rating. An aluminum driveshaft was custom made for this car. Out back a Currie 9" differential was built specifically for this car. The case is Currie's own heavy duty version of the 9". It uses high nodular iron with stiffening ribs. The carrier is track lock fitted with 3.89 gears and 31 spline axles. The housing was built narrow to fit some big shoes in the mini-tubbed rear wheel wells. All four wheels have non-boosted disk brakes.
