Just Chevrolet Nova's Drag Racing barona drag strip 1-5-2013
During the gambler grudge test and tune the chevrolet nova was out in force drag racing on the 1/8 mile.The Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova is a compact automobile manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors produced in five generations for the 1962 through 1979. Chevrolet designer Clare MacKichan recalled about creating the Chevy II: "There was no time for experimentation or doodling around with new ideas from either the engineers or from us in design; And it had to be a basic-type car." The 1962 Chevy II rode a 110-inch wheelbase, compared to 109.5 for the Ford Falcon, at which Chevy's new compact was aimed. "I think that was the quickest program we ever did at any time," he continued. "We worked night and day on that car, and it didn't take very long to run it through our shop because we had a deadline." And that's what made the Chevy II one of the fastest new-car development programs in GM history - just 18 months after the designers got the green light, the first production Chevy II rolled off the Willow Run, Michigan, assembly line in August 1961, in time for its September 29 introduction. Unlike the Corvair, the 1962 Chevy II was deliberately never intended to be revolutionary in concept or execution; its mission was to give Chevy buyers a simple, back-to-the-basics compact car. When he announced the Chevy II to the press, Chevrolet General Manager Ed Cole described the car as offering "maximum functionalism with thrift."
There was a lot of debate within the Chevrolet organization over just what to call this new car, and the decision to go with "Chevy II" was a very late one. Among the finalists was Nova. It lost out because it didn't start with a "C," but was selected as the name for the top-of-the-line series. Ultimately the Nova badge would replace Chevy II - but that wouldn't happen until 1969. In almost every way, the creators of the Chevy II used Falcon as a benchmark. The 1964 model range included sedans and wagons, just like Falcon, as well as a two-door hardtop and a convertible, which Falcon didn't yet have. The only body style it didn't offer which the Falcon did was a coupe utility (the Ford Falcon Ranchero), most likely to avoid competing with Chevrolet's own El Camino.The Nova Super Sport was transformed from a trim option to a performance package for 1968. One of the smallest muscle cars ever fielded by Detroit, the Nova SS now included a 295 hp (220 kW) 350 cu in (5.7 l) V8 engine along with a heavy-duty suspension and other performance hardware, priced at US$312. Optional engines included two versions of the big-block 396 cu in (6.5 l) V8 rated at 350 hp (260 kW) and 375 hp (280 kW), which went for US$348. Both engines were offered with a choice of transmissions including the M-21 close-ratio four-speed manual, the heavy-duty M-22 "Rock Crusher" four-speed manual, or the three-speed turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. A total of 17,564 SS coupes were produced for 1968. Novas sported the SS badge until 1972. Front disc brakes were optional on the 1968 Nova SS.
For 1969 the Chevy II nameplate was retired, leaving the Nova nameplate. The "Chevy II by Chevrolet" trunklid badge was replaced with "Nova by Chevrolet" and the "Chevy II" badge above the grille was replaced with the bowtie emblem and the '69 model was promoted under the Nova model name in Chevrolet sales literature.

Из грязи в князи: Chevrolet Nova
В декабре 1959-ого в Chevrolet начали
разрабатывать дизайн под кодовым
названием H-35, который должен был стать
своего рода промежуточным звеном между
компактными и полноразмерными
автомобилями. На момент своего выхода,
базовая модель носила название Chevrolet Chevy
II. В 1962 году имя Chevy II Nova получила одна из
топовых комплектаций модели.Первые Chevy II
оснащались четырех- или
шестицилиндровыми двигателями с
газораспределительным механизмом типа
OHV. Это были двух- или четырехдверные
седаны и многоместные
автомобили-универсалы. Но после
коммерческого успеха Ford Falcon, в Chevrolet
решили сместить акценты в сторону
Немаловажным будет напомнить, что в 1960-ом
Chevrolet уже сделали попытку выйти на рынок
компактных автомобилей с неоднозначным
Corvair. Необычный стиль и слухи о проблемах
с безопасностью Corvair отпугнули массового
покупателя, который уже давно сторонился
машин с задним расположением двигателя.
Со временем стало очевидно, что в Chevrolet
поставили не на ту лошадь. И именно Chevrolet
Nova предстояло спасти своих создателей.
На неё возлагались огромные надежды.

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. If you're ready to hit the road in
