When the Chevrolet Nova hit the market in the late 1960s, the first jokes were made about the name. The reason for this is that “no va” means “does not work” or “does not drive” in Spanish. That is why de Chevy was in Latin America and in US states with a large proportion of Spanish-speaking populations, quite a flop, and presented as a laughing stock. The first really big marketing failure in the history of the automotive industry was born, even if the model name actually refers to a supernova, i.e. the birth of a new star. But with the model that we are presenting to you today, no one has to have any doubts whether it drives or not, because this model is equipped with very special goodies that make the Nova a real one Sleeper make that you can't see its power.
classic exterior - inconspicuous look
The vehicle is currently on sale at RK Motor in Charlotte, North Carolina for an astronomical $ 179.900, and we anticipate a buyer will be interested in the Restomod finds. As soon as you take a closer look at the outside of the vehicle, you will immediately think that it is perfect for you restored Oldie, which is ideal for Sunday outings.
Thanks to its 1A condition and a few modifications to the landing gearlike one Detroit speed power steering and a QUADRALink Rear axle suspension from Detroit Speed, the Nova is much better around the corner than its standard brothers. When it comes to deceleration, too, it is in a completely different league than a series-production oldie, as it has not only an ABS, but also four disc brakes all around, which bring it to a safe stop even at high speeds.
In order to upgrade the look of the car a little, it was donated Rims from American Racing Rally, of which we unfortunately do not know the exact size. On the rims were All season tires of the type G-Max AS-05 raised. Thanks to the tires, the Nova could be driven without any problems even in bad weather, but in our opinion it is far too good for that in this condition.
The interior has been garnished with modern features.
As soon as you take a seat in the interior, the electrical seat-adjustment of the 2006 Pontiac GTO, which effortlessly adjusts the comfortable leather seats to suit your taste. The dashboard even includes one Bluetooth audio system and a Automatic climate control from Vintage Air. The Nova was also awarded a Custom center console which houses the buttons for the power windows. A Steering wheel with wooden wreath as well as a Trunk expansion, which is unparalleled thanks to leather covers, ensure a cozy atmosphere in the fantastically beautiful Restomod-Oldie.
An LS3 V8 petrol engine really heats up the classic!
A large volume V8 petrol with sharp Camshaft ensures that there is a mighty fire in the engine compartment. at 495 PS and 641 Newtonmeter torque, there is a lot of power to get the classic going. The power transmission takes place via a Tremec T56 manual transmission with six gears, which is also used in various muscle cars and US sports cars, as it can withstand high torque without any problems.
