1971 Nova owned by Duane Rush
My 1971 Chevy Nova I bought out of a junk yard and restored in 1994. I couldn't afford to pay anyone so did bodywork myself (never did it before). I got someone to paint it for me after I finished body work. I choose Bahama blue PPG paint. I installed a .30 over 350 small block with Keith Black pistons. I used a 620 lift Doug Herbert solid roller cam with Harland Sharp roller rockers. Double hump heads were fitted with 2.02 intake and 1.60 stainless Exhaust valves. I used a Edelbrock Victor Jr intake with a Barry Grant 750 cfm carb. 1 3/4" Hedman headers with 3" Exhaust in 2 chamber Flowmaster mufflers. I also installed a 4.11 Auburn posi- unit rear end. 12 gallon fuel cell with Moroso blue fuel pump sends the race fuel to the engine. Aluminum radiator with eletric fan and a Moroso electric water pump drive does the cooling. New interor from Year One was installed after all painting was done. I wasn't trying to nor was I able to build a "showcar" I just wanted a nice lookin and sounding Nova to cruise around in.
