Although the 1974 Nova had some of the same stylings as the
previous years there were some changes starting in 1973 so the 73s
and 74s are considered their own generation. In addition to larger
bumpers due to government mandates they received a new grill style
as well in board headlights. Another big feature was the
introduction of the hatchback body style. The cool 74 you see here
is painted in an Atomic Orange paint with dual Black racing
stripes. The car rides on a set of aftermarket Jegs wheels Cooper
Cobra Radial G/T tires.
The car is powered by a 383 V8 stroker motor fitted with chrome
Chevrolet valve covers, aftermarket heads, a chrome alternator,
chrome water pump, and 4 barrel carburetor. The car runs well and
sounds good. The transmission is a Turbo 350 automatic that moves
through the gears nicely.
The interior is done in Black and features bench seats with lap
belts in back and lap/shoulder belts up front. The dash utilizes a
lot of the original components but a column mounted Bosch
tachometer and Summit Racing Oil/Water/Volt gauges have been added.
It also has an aftermarket stereo system with a speaker box mounted
behind the seat.
