For Sale at Auction: 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

One-of-a-kind 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS custom designed and owned by NASCAR Hall-of-Famer Rusty Wallace and built by Ambition Road in Troutman, NC. On the outside, the car is cloaked in a luscious Champagne color, custom-formulated by Chip Foose. Meanwhile, the interior is finished in a supple Amber leather, completed by North Carolina's Hot Rod Interiors by Chuck. While beautiful to look at, this Nova SS also has the performance you'd expect from a NASCAR Hall of Famer. At its heart is a fuel-injected, 6.2-liter Chevy LS3 V8 engine producing a ground-pounding 538hp. All that power is transferred to the pavement through a TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission, mated to a Ford 9-inch rear end with a Currie Wavetrac differential and a 35-spline axle. In the racing world, handling can be just as important as horsepower. Wallace designed this Nova with that in mind. It features a front suspension by Detroit Speed and a custom composite-spring rear suspension. All of this is tied to the ground by a set of custom color-matched 18-inch Boze wheels with Goodyear Eagle rubber. Going fast often means stopping quickly and this car can do that, too. It sports a custom Wilwood brake system, with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston calipers in the rear. Details matter, and this Nova SS has plenty of them, including a stainless-steel exhaust and fuel tank, a booming Pioneer stereo, Vintage Air heat and air conditioning, Dakota Digital gauges and CAD/CAM-designed front and rear spoilers.
