Lot #17 1973 CHEVROLET NOVA CUSTOM "CARLITOS WAY MOVIE CAR"
Lot #17 - This is the very car that was in the Al Pacino movie, "Carlito's Way" in 1993. The car is a 1973 Chevy Nova with a custom paint job by Lenny Smith. The roof has been dropped 4" to give it unbelievable lines. Looks fantastic. This car has also been modified with a 1954 grille and Camaro bumpers on the front and rear. Car is sporting custom rims that have been painted to match the car. This car is powered by a 350 engine with a tuned port induction system that not only sounds great but has some great torque. They will hear you coming. This is a well documented car with a contract and check stubs that came from Universal Studio's "Carlito Productions Inc". Also provided is a "cheat sheet" script that was used by Al Pacino and found in the glovebox of this car. I have replaced the exhaust system recently with a new Flowmaster system. I have also, even though it was not needed, replaced all gaskets and the seal on the motor and transmission. With today's build costs and the history of this car who knows what the value is of this car. To quote Al Pacino "You think your big time?" Not so unless you add this car to your collection.
