For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/ld6d6gn Equipped with modern Chevrolet power, a smooth automatic transmission and a thoroughly updated appearance, this slick Nova has been drawing stares ever since it rolled off the trailer. And if you're ready to feel the summer breeze behind the wheel of a storied Detroit legend, it's a chance to turn your dreams into reality! Built to be a head-turning showpiece, this sinister coupe features a detailed, custom appearance that's highlighted by a spectacular color combination and bright, mirror-like accents. Take one look down the sides of the car's slick body and it becomes very obvious that great care was taken to ensure all gaps are at better-than-factory standards. Step closer to the car's wet looking finish and check out straight and ripple-free panels that aren't plagued by any rust or major imperfections. Grab the car's well-adjusted hood and feel how smoothly it opens to provide excellent fit which is set off by a glossy clearcoat shine. And it all adds up to one top-notch resto-mod that transforms traditional muscle car style into multi-dimensional swagger! Built to tear up the street and wow show goers alike, the car's fully balanced LT4, which combines a sturdy iron block and lightweight aluminum heads with a full outfit of Street & Performance chrome, transforms stout 11.5 to 1 compression into razor-sharp throttle response. At the front of the Jet Black block, a modern accessory drive spins a chrome alternator and rebuilt water pump below a big, reusable filter element. Once air enters that filter, it flows through a beefy Holley throttle body to a factory intake that's bolted down over high quality internals. Distilled fossils are provided by GM electronic fuel injection. Sparks are sequenced through MSD 6AL ignition and vivid MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Spent gases swirl through slick, ceramic-coated block huggers. And cooling comes courtesy of a proven aluminum radiator that's fitted with sleeved hoses, two electronic puller fans and a small chrome cap. That buff LT4 utilizes a rebuilt GM 4L60E 4-speed and Ford 9-inch rear end to spin a proven Traction-Lok differential and rugged, 31-spline axles around solid, 3.70 gears. Holding that stellar drivetrain off the ground is a completely rebuilt suspension which benefits from a Chris Alston's Chassisworks subframe, adjustable Ridetech ShockWaves, a 4-bar rear section and manual rack and pinion steering. Stops come quickly thanks to a Wilwood 4-wheel disc brake system that features drilled and slotted rotors at all four corners. Spent gases are managed by large, aluminized pipes, which make good use of wicked Flowmaster mufflers. And power pounds the pavement through mirrored Hot Wheels Sixty-Eights, which spin 215/45ZR17 Dunlop SP Sports in front of 235/45ZR17 Dunlop SP Sports. Inside this Chevy, classic style is augmented with seamlessly integrated customization. The car's TMI-branded seats, which feature attractive contrasting stitching, are all-day comfortable and display supple leather covers that fit without any significant wrinkles or creases. At the base of those seats, fade-free carpet frames aftermarket foot pedals and a clean B&M QuickSilver shifter. Above that shifter, a leather-capped dash hangs an array of Auto Meter Pro Comp Ultra Light gauges around a high quality Eclipse CD player and small control panel for the car's Ridetech suspension. And in front of the driver, a polished steering wheel spins a color-keyed rim around a tilting Flaming River column. This robust resto-mod looks absolutely predatory, and will likely attract a TON of attention wherever it goes.

1000 HP 1963 Chevy Nova SS - A Day At The Track V8TV-Video
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Joe Kosiba is one of those guys who likes to keep his stuff in order. His house and truck are always spotless, and his garage is so clean it could double as a showroom. We've often found that shops that are too clean never see any work, but Joe also knows how to get things done. Take his '63 Nova, for example. He's owned it for a long time, and it has gone through several transformations over the years, resulting in the car you see in this video. Today it's an arrow-straight street / strip terror that makes around 1000 horsepower from a small block sucking Nitrous Oxide. In this video, Joe takes the car to the World Street Challenge to run in the Wild Street class where you have to drive the car 30 miles, then run back-to-back dragstrip passes to qualify. Joe's Nova ended up winning the class with low 9-second quarter mile passes at around 150 miles per hour. If you ask Joe, it's just good clean fun. You can also see this car featured in the May, 2009, Car Craft Magazine. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Chceck out: "​Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode #182: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 454 - The Last One?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pczqb76mhw -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
