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.

If you're a Trans Am enthusiast who's searching for that elusive F2 that
you can literally purchase and drive straight to the show, we've got the
car for you!
Assembled at GM's famous Norwood manufacturing facility in May of 1970,
this awesome blue bird was shipped across the country to A&G Motor Sales in
Tell City, Indiana where it began a 43 year existence filled with
immaculate maintenance and impeccable care. Today, wearing solid, rust-free
body panels, it displays a nice looking coat of GM code 26 Lucerne Blue
paint on top of smooth and solid surfaces that we're recently re-visited in
a high quality, frame-off restoration. And that cool blue paint is
complemented by a correct set of "TRANS AM" call-outs that, along with a
centered roof stripe and an aggressive 'Screaming Chicken' hood decal,
create some of the most iconic and desirable muscle car war paint in
Take a look under this Tin Indian's glossy blue hood and you'll find a 400
cubic inch, L74 Ram Air III V8 that, thanks to the car's fresh restoration,
is a trophy worthy showpiece. Back in the early 70s, government-mandated
emissions standards ensured the muscle car era was coming to an abrupt end.
And many of the models that virtually owned the streets not even five years
earlier were, unfortunately, in their final days of production. Luckily,
the gearheads at Pontiac kept the faith and continued to offer multiple
performance options which still created the kind of torque-rich power that
muscle car buyers had come to crave. At 400 cubic inches, this WS block was
already one of the largest engines you could buy in 1970; and by utilizing
a unique distributor and application-specific heads, it managed to meet
ever increasing emissions standards while still turning out a solid 345 horsepower and a
stump pulling 430 lb./ft. of torque!
Behind that monster motor, a rugged Muncie M20 4-speed sends power to a
beefy 12 bolt rear end that does a great job on either the back roads or
the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain, a rebuilt Trans Am
suspension, which includes factory power steering, thicker sway bars,
better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power front
disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. And
that roster of road ready hardware rolls on a fresh set of Pontiac Rally II
wheels which spin F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around pristine PMD center
Open this Pontiac's mile-wide doors and you'll find a fully restored GM
code 201 interior that blends seamlessly with the car's bright blue paint!
Low back bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every bit as nice and rich
as our pictures imply. Between those seats, a molded blue console props an
enclosed storage bin behind a chrome Hurst shifter and a factory 8-track
player. And in front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash
props crystal clear gauges and a correct Delco radio behind a black tilt
column and a black Formula steering wheel.
This highly desirable Trans Am is a pristine example of Pontiac's
contribution to Detroit's first golden age of performance. Call, click or
