Fastest Street Car in America! Meet 5-Time Drag Week Winner Larry Larson - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep 40
HOT ROD Drag Week is the world's most brutal test of a real street/strip car, requiring the cars to drive 1,200-plus miles in one week while racing five days in a row at four different tracks. Larry Larson has done the impossible, winning five times in a row in his '66 Chevy Nova that has been as quick as 6.94 seconds in the quarter mile at 200-plus mph. This ranks as one of the most impressive feats in all of motorsports, and has earned the Nova the title of HOT ROD Magazine's Fastest Street Car in America. In this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, meet the humble chassis builder from Oak Grove, Missouri, who makes it happen. HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

1966 Chevrolet II Nova Prostock
Up for sale in our Tampa Showroom is this thoroughbred drag race car, a 1966 Chevrolet Nova II pro-stock. This custom built car is born from all new parts, the body, chassis, engine, everything! This particular car comes with a pretty nice race pedigree as well, boasting times of 4.80 seconds in the 1/8th mile, and 7.50 in the 1/4 mile. So to answer the first questions, no this bad Nova is not street legal. Let's start with the most important part of this car, the engine. The platform for this engine is a 460 race engine, bored and stroked to a 598 cubic inch monster, complete with a 4 1/2" stroke, topped off with a set of 360 Dart Heads and built with a Lunati Camshaft with specs boasting ,804 intake lift, and .755 Exhaust lift. All of this gives this engine an astounding 14:1 compression ratio, meaning you need to fill this baby up with 110 octane to keep it all together. To feed the fuel into this monster is a 1050 cfm Dominator carb and sitting on top of a Nitrous fogger plate that force feeds this engine a 300 horsepower shot of Nitrous at the push of a button. If you factor all these things together, and complete it with a professional Dyno-tune, this little Nova pounds out a massive 1400+ horsepower as it rages down the track. Now power isn't always everything, in order to win the race you need to deliver the power to the wheels, and doing this is a built 2-speed powerglide complete with a 76 gear trans brake. Some say this is the best option for a drag race car, and it is safe to say that it is the most popular transmission used by bracket racers across the country. To maintain power, this car comes equipped with a primary Magnafuel 500 electric fuel pump, known by racers to accomodate up to 2,000 horsepower, and backed up by a 140 electric fuel pump during Nitrous use. The chassis is custom built with a full roll cage and is designed in spec with NHRA standards, and even comes serialized to prove it's pedigree and reliability. The body is also custom built fiberglass in the classic 1966 Chevy II Nova, to show off that a car can also be stunning as it blasts down the track. Safety features on this car also include a full roll cage, manual release parachute, 5-point harness, neck harness, fire gloves, fire extinguisher and quick disconnect electrical system. All in all, this car meets all standards set by the NHRA, and is still capable of running the strip countless more times, so if you are looking to win at the track, and not spend the required $250,000 just to build one of these yourself, come pick this badboy up today! Options include Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, Racing Wheels, Drag Slicks, Electric cutoff, Removable Steering Wheel, and a massive 1400 horsepower 598 Cubic Inch V8.
