1966 Chevrolet VENOM Nova
If you are looking for the ultimate muscle car then here is where you stop. This one of a kind 1966 Venom Nova is one of the nicest Nova's on the street and is in a special group of all fiberglass Novas. The production of these bodies is extremely limited and even stopped for a short time before resuming again. This is one of the more recent cars built so any issues with the molds had been worked out and the process perfected prior to this car. The body is extremely straight with 67 style front fenders and is coated in a beautiful Sunburst Orange metallic paint. This is paired with Blacked out Budnik wheels and a carbon fiber wrapped hood for a extremely tough and cohesive look. It has 18x11 in rear and 17x8 in front which are wrapped with nice Nitto tires. All of the chrome has a great finish and custom carbon fiber trim was created for the rear.
This car is more than just looks though. Powering this machine is a 2010 6.2L LS3 with a Magnuson TVS 2300 Supercharger. The car has no problem spinning the tires and produces a ton of power putting out around 710 horsepower on the dyno. The engine compartment has a show ready finish with custom inner fenders and painted firewall. The motor is done in a combination of Black and Chrome which accent each other perfectly. Backing the motor is a 4L80E Comp-u-shift electronic transmission with 3000 stall that moves through the gears smoothly. There is no way of listing all of the top of the line components that make up this drive train but other features include the gear drive starter, Concept One serpentine 8 rib belt assembly, Flaming River power steering, Ron Davis radiator, Dual Spal fans, Stainless 15 gallon gas tank, Spintech ceramic coated 3 inch exhaust, stainless 15 gallon gas tank, Baer disc brakes and a Painless wiring harness.
The interior is just as nice as the rest being done in a high quality Beige ultra leather. The bucket seats are extremely comfortable and sit to each side of the custom built center console. The dash has a clean finish being nicely painted to match the body and is topped with Autometer gauges. A push button ignition system is in place as well as power door locks and power windows. The chrome steering column is topped with a Budnik steering wheel with a matching leather wrap. Other nice components include the AC which blows cold and a custom AM/FM/CD stereo system. The trunk has been fully upholstered just like the interior and incorporates additional storage compartment and a spot for the hidden battery.
Looking at this car closely you will see that there are zero weak areas. The body lines and modifications were extremely well done to the highest level of show quality. It has 3,339 miles since completed and shows extremely well. It is the type of classic that is drivable while still being able to pull into any national show and compete.
