This 1974 Chevrolet Nova Pro Street has a mean stance and a ton of
power in its professionally built stroker motor to back it all up.
So if you have zero interest in being timid, you know you have a
ton of interest in this blue bad boy.
Novas always make a great base for speedy projects. They are
lighter weight Chevys that are also built to take big motors. But
the impressiveness of this one goes beyond just its speed. The deep
blue paint has a nice clearcoat finish, and the gloss shows off the
crisp body lines. And the big chrome bumpers and full window trim
are part of a solid brightwork package. Of course no one looks at
this and only sees a clean classic. Those bright Weld Racing wheels
have the skinny tire front and massive rear rubber look that tells
you it's really a car that would be capable at the strip but also
has a license plate on the back.
The interior continues the professional grade attitude. After all,
you see part of the roll cage every time you open the door. It's
not so intrusive that it makes getting in a chore, but it does send
a message about the car's ability. It'll also get people looking at
the back where the rear seat has been replaced with the rest of the
cage and tubed wells to fit the big rear tires. This continues to
the trunk where you can spot the fuel cell correctly placed within
this Nova's reinforced chassis. This is set up for driving, and so
you have two high-back bucket seats up front. There's a sports
shifter, and ahead of that is your auxiliary gauges. The grippy
sports steering wheel is there because this is the kind of speed
machine that will really make you hang on.
The look of the engine bay is pure power. It's a 392 cubic inch
stroker V8 built by Clements Racing Engines. It includes aluminum
heads, flat tappet 1.6 rollers, fabricated valve covers, MSD 6AL
ignition, Edelbrock Victor Jr intake, and topped with a Holley
double-pumper four-barrel carburetor. You also have the right
supporting pieces, including a large aluminum radiator. This one
fires up readily as the headers add power and thunder to the dual
exhaust. The TH350 three-speed automatic is a TCI unit with a 3000
stall. It feeds a stout 12-bolt rear end that connects to those
extra meaty Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires. And the upgraded
four-link rear suspension with coilovers and a diagonal link means
you know this speedy Chevy can keep the power on the pavement.
This is a big power Nova that's ready for you to harness it. Call
