Classic Car Overview
1971 Chevrolet Nova Coupe $36,000
In the spirit of Don Yenko, this recreation was developed to maintain some of that “beast” power but also tame it with more modern suspension, brakes, and other components. The goal was to make it something you could hop in and take on a 1,000-mile drive like the Power Tour.
The car was slowly put together by a group of friends who each owned it for a short time and continued the project. The final piece before being sold to the current owner was the engine. One of the owner’s was a long time engine builder at Chet Wilson Engine Service in Wichita, KS. He ended up buying the car from his son’s friend and began building a very special engine. The engine was built to rev. It has closed chamber oval port heads ported and polished and racing cams. I can’t even begin to imagine the cost of this motor if they were charging a customer for it. The engine was balanced and blueprinted. Chet Wilson Engine is world famous. They have been building high performance American engines for over 50-years and are considered one of the best in the industry.
Some highlights of the build components and updates since being built include: Custom 454 built by Chet Wilson with over 500hp. ~13k miles on the motor.New M22-Z Muncie 4-speed gearbox in Muncie supercase with Hurst shifter 12 Bolt Rear End with 3.08 Freeway gearing (so you can actually drive her places) Hotchkiss Suspension with traction bars Steel Wheels with Poverty Hub Caps and BFG T/As 255 60r15 Vintage Air System that Blows Ice Cold Upgraded GM Disc Brakes all the way around Flowmaster mufflerGriffin Aluminum radiatorPower breaks / Power steering
This Yenko Nova clone is a fantastic driver. If you like to go on long cruises with your car club or simply hang out at your local car show, this example can do it all.
The body is in very nice condition and is straight with a decent paint job. There are no signs of accidents or rust. The windshield has a small chip on the driver’s side. The interior has 2 minor seat tears but is otherwise in great shape. The carpet is fresh and the dash is new. All the gauges seem to work properly except for the gas gauge and the clock. this car is a very nice driver cosmetically with a top-notch drivetrain.
