The simulated bullet holes are a dead giveaway that this was used
for something epic. This 1971 Chevrolet Nova was part of a pivotal
chase scene for the movie Bad Boys II. And while it looks like the
good guys won this round, this Nova still has the kind of strong V8
power for plenty of mischief today.
We can't describe the paint and body in normal classic car terms.
After all, there are dents, missing glass, and holes down to bare
metal. But every distinct "incident" tells the larger story of this
car's part in Hollywood magic. Production teams don't actually
shoot a car with bullets, but they do know how to make real holes
that look like Will Smith and Martin Lawrence hit their target.
More than just movie fame, this one has a cool looks of Super Sport
with the SS grille, badging, and dual racing stripes. And the
bright 15-inch American Racing wheels have extra meaty rear rubber
to give this the proper stance of a muscle machine.
Just like the exterior, the interior is more about going behind the
scenes. You have complete seating, but you'll also spot pieces that
were altered or deleted depending on the need on-camera. And while
most of the interior shots used a different car, this one was
prepped to make sure it's a proper driver. That's why you have
features like a grippy sports steering wheel, power steering, and
an auxiliary gauge trio mounted under the dash.
In the movie, this Nova is being chased by a Ferrari. So in real
life, this has some nice V8 power to really move. It's a hardy
Chevy small block believed to be a 383 stroker. It's upgraded with
a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Victor Jr intake, and
Patriot aluminum heads. There are even nice supporting pieces, like
an MSD ignition and an Optima red top battery mounted in the trunk.
The wrapped long tube headers add even more power while feeding the
X-pipe dual exhaust. There are no over-axle bends or big mufflers,
so this V8 gets to exhale quite freely with authority.
This is a cool piece of movie car history with some genuine muscle
behind it. So if you're looking for the most distinct V8 Nova
around, it's hard to beat this deal. Call today!!!
