Description
Lot #776 - This Resto-Mod 1971 Nova is all new from top to bottom and front to back. The built aluminum LS3 small block makes 696hp. It stops and handles like a modern day performance car. Rotisserie restored with new tinted glass, rubber moldings, chrome bumpers and trim pieces were added. Has a 6.2 Liter aluminum block LS3 engine which was bored and stroked to 420cid. The L-92 aluminum heads were milled, ported and outfitted with an array of custom spec Comp Cams roller valve train parts. A custom built TCI Turbo 400 automatic transmission and matched to a modified TCI 1,800rpm stall convertor. Detroit Speed supplied one of their Speed 3 front end suspension kits. The Speed 3 kit features tubular upper and lower control arms, specific rate coilover springs, specific valve aluminum shocks and an anti-roll bar. An optional high rate, ceramic finish steering box was also installed. These additions delivered outstanding corner carving, high performance steering. To keep the rear end planted, the fragile factory leaf springs were replaced with a high strength Detroit Speed QuadraLink suspension built around a Ford 9" rear end with 3.50 gears. A set of steel mini tubs were welded in to make room for the narrowed 9" rear and wide 18"x10" FOOSE Nitrous wheels. A Baer Extreme Performance 4-wheel disc brake system was installed along with a Vintage Air system. Finish Line interiors in Jasper, GA stitched the beautiful gray and blue leather over a set of body hugging front and rear bucket seats.
