For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Nova in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

You can just tell when someone has invested big time in a serious street machine. This 1971 Chevrolet Nova Pro Street has much more going for it than just the super-slick paint. Because while that's grabbing all your attention, the full race-ready package (including the fully-built 950 hp nitrous V8) is ready to blow the doors off of EVERYONE.

The intimidating forward-leaning stance, full rear wing, and extra tall cowl hood all instantly announce this is a street-eating Nova. But what's particularly impressive is how they took the time to give this mean machine a ton of flair. The Orange Crush paint has a vividness that can almost glow in the dark. And the huge shine coming off the finish also highlights how straight the bodywork is. And black always looks great against orange. It's not only drawing your attention to the lift-off cowl hood and big rear spoiler, but it also gives you a great touch of vintage premium with the vinyl roof. And the chrome shine of the bumpers and grille go well with the Weld magnesium wheels. So while this one is unmistakably powerful, it's also exceptionally stylish. And this level of thoughtfulness is seen throughout the car. That's why it may look almost too mean for a license plate, but you will be pleasantly surprised how willing it is to cruise to the local cars & coffee.

The interior is pure performance. The chrome-moly driver cage was built in 2007 and is NHRA certified. You have dual racing seats up front with RJS Racing five-point harnesses and with chest buckles driver and pass cert to Dec 2023. There is no back seat so that there's room to fit wide rear tires under the car as well as the rest of the full custom safety cage inside. You get a race-ready setup with the Precision Performance ratchet shifter, MPI quick-release steering wheel, fire suppression system, and Racepak dash panel with Pro Sportsman recorder. The race cage extends to the trunk to protect the fuel cell and dual batteries. While this is a full competition-grade setup, the pro street segment is about providing a car that also runs on the local streets. So this has some nice details like the orange houndstooth cloth seat inserts that coordinate with the exterior, and the door panels were done to match, too. You even have full carpeting, a proper headliner, and a working dome light - the kind of things that get left out of a pure stripped-out race car.

The hood completely lifts off like a competition-grade machine should. But you'll also like doing this to show off the tidy and shining professional presentation. The 555 cubic-inch Merlin II block, and that's just the start of this performance build. It has been enhanced and fortified with a Callies magnum crankshaft, Diamond custom pistons, Total Seal rings, a custom grind camshaft, a Comp Cams valve spring kit, aluminum heads, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Brodix intake, and custom four-inch headers. There's also a full nitrous kit. The full package was dyno-tested in 2017, and it peaked at a whopping 951 horsepower! This is also supported by the right pieces, including an MSD grid ignition box and a large radiator with electric fan. There have been thousands $$$$$ invested in this one over the recent years, and the consignor even states that every hose, line, and fitting was replaced in 2021. It's this kind of dedication why this one feels confident on a drive to the car show. Of course, it also knows exactly how to dominate every quarter-mile. The transmission is a manual valve body Powerglide w/3500 stall professionally built by Champion Racing Transmissions. This feeds a strong Strange Engineering rear end. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll spot more great upgrades, like the tubular A-arms up front, a reinforced four-link rear, four-wheel disc brakes, and adjustable coilovers behind each wheel (QA1 front and Afco rear.)

The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the dyno sheet. You can see there are a ton more details on this award-worthy pro street machine. We don't have the room to list it all here, but give us a call for all the details on this all-around awesome build. Call today!!!
