Novas make terrific muscle machines. After all, this 1970 Chevrolet
Nova SS tribute already has the right look of intimidation, and
that's before you even see the strong dual-quad small block and
Black is the most intimating way to distinguish it from other
Novas. The finish also has a nice gloss and shine to show off the
desirable fastback-style profile. It has all the right aggressive
touches for the classic SS-style appearance, including the SS
grille, cowl hood, and blackout rear panel. And we absolutely love
the added street machine attitude that comes from the 18-inch
Riddler wheels with an extra wider rear set. Plus, the brightwork
has a nice Americana feeling with body-hugging chrome bumpers. But
what really sets this one apart is the full-length orange stripe
package. It shows off the straightness of the sheet metal while
also looking distinctly sporty.
The blackout presentation continues inside. This is factory correct
to the car, and the clean look of the door panels, carpeting,
headliner, and upholstery show there was investment later in life.
But there's no real extra fluff here, because after all, we love
Novas for being able to put big power in a smaller/lightweight
package. So this one doesn't have too many superfluous features.
Instead, it just gives you the right driver-focused features like
the upgraded gauges mounted on the A-pillar and a Hurst floor
The engine bay is the right mix of stout components and show-worthy
style. After all, the clean metal inner fenders are both stylishly
bright and race car worthy. They help funnel your attention to the
brightly polished V8 heart. It's a later small block with
center-bolt heads. We're told this 350 cubic-inch V8 was upgraded
to a 383ci stroker motor, and it even shows the right signs and
power of this kind of upgrade. Plus, there are power upgrades with
dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors, an Edelbrock intake, and
long tube headers feeding into the dual exhaust. It also has good
supporting components, like the aluminum radiator, steel braided
lines with AN fittings, and battery mounted in the trunk for better
weight distribution. Best of all, you are in complete control of
the power and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the four-speed
manual transmission. And power steering, power brakes, front discs,
and modern sports tires make for a good all-around driver.
This is the quick-revving power Nova that's a ton of fun to drive.
So don't let this SS tribute slip away, call today!
