Classic Car Overview
This 1971 Chevrolet Nova is exactly what you want in a muscle car. It has a slick paint, great chrome, and big block power. Best of all, with an A/C interior and plenty of other upgrades, this coupe has been carefully constructed to be both comfortable and quick. So you can enjoy the best of everything on this exceptionally fresh build. This classic Nova has been given plenty of modern upgrades, so the best way to tell the world is with modern paint. Flaming Blue is a color borrowed from new Toyotas, and its part of a careful and expensive application. And with less than 260 miles on this build, it remains exceptionally vibrant today. Of course, it takes the right canvas to really make the paint work, and thats why there was special attention to getting the sheetmetal looking so good. So now every time the sunshine hits this classic, the modern clearcoat highlights the crisp lines and fastback profile that we all love on these 3rd-gen Novas. Also, while youll enjoy the mirror-like presentation of classic pieces like the chrome bumpers and Rally wheels, features like the bright and clear headlights hint at more upgrades beneath the skin. Inside is a nice blending of vintage and new worlds. The seats, door panels, carpeting, and fundamentals look correct and feel fresh from investment. And as you sit down, you start to see a ton of upgrades. The dash now houses pieces like an AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth connection. And theres also modern R134a air conditioning. So this classic knows how to keep everyone happy. But it will always be the driver who enjoys this Nova the most. The B&M ratchet-style shifter is just calling out for your right hand. Plus, the classic Nova dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view at the Dakota Digital VHX full gauge package. This is the kind of engine bay we all dream about. The satin black fender walls funnel your attention to a ton of polished components. Its the kind of investment where we dare you to find another motor piece that can be polished. So it has a presentation that is both clean and mean exactly what wins awards. And more than just look powerful, this is a Skip White Performance 406 cubic-inch Stage III Dart block. In fact, with a build so new, the motor is still under warranty! It has all the right pieces, including a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, aluminum heads, fabricated valve covers, billet pulleys, MSD ignition, and Hooker ceramic coated headers. This monster motor is dyno rated at 485 horsepower, and the wicked growl of the dual exhaust lets the world know its superiority. Power like this needs the right components to get it to the ground. Thats why theres a three-speed automatic transmission built by Hughes Performance. This feeds a stout 9-inch Ford rear end with 3.73 gears and limited slip for great take-offs. And make sure you look at the undercarriage photos. There you will see how fresh this build is, right down to the bushing. Plus, youll also spot upgraded Caltracs suspension pieces like the tubular A-arms up front and traction bars in the rear. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and even a large aluminum radiator w/electric fan, and you soon realize that this beastly Nova is easy to tame. The sale comes complete with the owners manual, warranty info, build receipts, and dyno sheet. So dont miss you chance at this terrific street-eating Nova, call today!
