Quotefrom the builder of this Nova.
“I wanted a road race, vintage Trans-Aminspired car,” stated Jon. He started with a 1970 Nova. Before doing anything,he knew that in order to get the wheels and stance just right, the fenders hadto be stretched. After media blasting the car and stripping it down to theframe, all four fenders are stretched two-inches to allow for up to a 10″ wheelup front and 14″ wheel in the back if he so desires. In addition to stretchingthe fenders, a set ofDetroit Speedminitubsallowed for extra breathing room.
We all know that the factory suspensionwouldn’t be up to par with these plans. Ditching all that, he slipped acompleteChris AlstonChassisworksfront end under the car. In the rear a modifiedG-Bar 4-link was installed withCurrieEnterprisesbillet arms, Johnny Joints and a full floaterCurrie rear end. In order to stiffen up the chassis and increase safety, a12-point roll cage was installed. Dampening is handled at all four cornerswithFoxtripleadjustable PODIUM shocks.
In order to get the car stopping, amassive set ofBaer 6Pbrakeswere installed at all corners with 14″ rotors. Wrapping thebrakes is a set ofAmericanRacingVF503 wheels, with a traditional pinstripe to set themoff. The fronts are 18×9 withFalken615K 275/35 series tires and the rears are 18×11with a 315/30 series tire.
We can see how this car oozes Trans-Amwith a modern street twist to it.
Exteriorand Interior Attention
The Dupont VW Chili Pepper Red grabsattention on this Nova a mile away. Finished with the Toyota White stripes,everybody is stopping to look at this ride. A few custom touches were done onthe body as well such as a ’69 Firebird rear bumper,Anvil Autocarbonfiber hood and a custom front bumper.
A custom adjustable rear spoilercompletes the Trans-Am look of this Nova while the shaved door locks and cowlpanel clean up the lines of the car.If you pay attention closely, you’llnotice a set of custom 3D printed fender vents too. Fesler build supplied thecool door handles, hood hinges, trunk hinges and tail lights. Another coolpiece on this Nova is the Warnoff-road lights which act as headlights.
On the interior, the theme is carried through out. A custom sheetmetal dash adorns a full cluster ofAuto Metergauges.Clayton Machine Workswasutilized for door handles and the pedal set up while theIdiditcolumnfeatures aBudnikwheelandTwist Machinepaddleshifters.
To keep the driver safe and comfortable,Cipher Autoseatswere installed. The rest of the interior consists of sheet metal doorpanels,LineXfloors withDynamatand aTMI Productsonepiece headliner. The interior is clean but all business – the only creaturecomfort is aVintage Airheaterand Cold A/C for those hot days and cold mornings.
The heart of the Nova surprisingly isn’tan LS engine. Keeping true to the builder’s inspiration, just went BBC. However,an ordinary BBC wouldn’t do. Starting with a 454, Jon bored and stroked theengine out to 468 cubic-inches utilizing a GM billet crank and H-Beam rods andaComp Camshydraulicroller camshaft. A set ofEdelbrockPerformer heads and Edelbrock Victor Jr. intakekeeps the air flowing in this engine.
Going a step further out of theordinary, Jon installed a singleCX RacingT4 78mm turbo set up on this BBC to make surethat he will put the hurting on a few LS powered cars. A completeFiTechunit keeps thefuel properly mixed for the engine, which a complete HyperFuel system does thejob of supplying fuel to the FiTech unit. Exhaust is expelled through a setofGibsonmufflersafter going through a custom set of headers that have been ceramic coated.Cooling for the turbo is a CX Racing intercooler and anAutoRadradiatorset up keeps the BBC cool at all times. Behind the powerful BBC is a built4L80E transmission. This transmission is mated the theCurrierear endwith anInland EmpireDrivelinedriveshaft.
