Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.

Instead of being content with a pre-existing 'genre' or an existing set of
muscle car standards, Alex Covington and the team at the Roadster Shop
decided to take a whole new approach with this 1967 Chevy Nova. Originally,
Covington wanted just a unique looking Nova, but after seeing the direction
the Roadster Shop was heading with his ride, he gave them the thumbs up to
build a one-of-a-kind Nova. Armed with a belief that true progress in
design can only come with taking risks and stepping outside comfort zones,
the Roadster Shop set out to build a Nova that was like nothing else that
ever came before it. The results are phenomenal, and we aren't the only
ones who think so. In 2011, the Innovator received the highly sought after
Street Machine of the Year award from Goodguys.
The Nova was quickly given the name Innovator based on its build. The
Roadster Shop built the Innovator as an example of where the hot rod and
the custom industry could possibly head in the coming years. The build
started with a '67 Nova body that was in extremely rough shape. The team at
the Roadster Shop cut out the floors, and then put the Nova on a rotisserie
and had the body media blasted. From there the body received a tremendous
amount of work: The top was chopped ¾ of an inch, the fenders were
re-profiled, and the main mid-section body line was completely removed and
new accent lines were created over each wheel opening. New bumpers were
made along with rocker extensions and front and rear diffusers. From there
the team incorporated a modern circuit board inspired pattern throughout
the entire car and in the paint design. The futuristic circuit board theme
starts with a custom grille that captures everyone's attention. The pattern
then continues as an accent down the glossy white doors, and up the flat
Lift the hood and you will find a 454 cubic inch Mast Motorsports LS series
small block. Based on a GMPP 454 cubic inch LSX, the block was bored to
4.185 inches, the LS7 aluminum cast heads were CNC-ported, and a custom
hydraulic roller cam was installed to help the engine create an incredible
700hp at 6,700RPMs and 611lb./ft. of torque at 4,900RPMs.
While the body features a lot of rigid angles and hard lines, the interior
is much more inviting with smooth rounded surfaces. Open the doors and
you'll be greeted by a completely custom one-off interior that is just as
unique as the rest of the build. The headliner and floor are illuminated by
fiber-optic lighting, and the stitching has been done in such a way to
include the circuit board pattern. Two Sparco bucket seats provide a great
place to log miles from. In front of the driver are two custom gauges that
create a 3-d floating effect by having the numbers printed on the back of
the lenses of the tach and speedometer. Between the gauges sits a Bespoke
digital readout interface that displays everything from coolant temperature
to oil pressure.
Throughout the entire car the Innovator lives up to its namesake, it
impresses inside and out. This '67 Nova may have had very humble beginnings
but today it sits as an award winning ride that is capable of beating you
on the ¼ or on the autocross. Don't miss your chance to own this
incredible ride. For more information, call, click, or visit

74 Chevy Nova Update 100 - FINAL PAINT (Lots of Timelapse video)
My Day at the paint booth! Lots of time lapse in this video of every step I
took to get the 74 Nova painted. If you are wondering why I taped green
tape to my clothes is because I wanted to make sure my clothes do not flap
and touch the car while painting. Its tight against my body.
