Only 3,242 miles on a ground up build. This little Nova is a ground
pounder. Can you believe there is a big block 454 under the hood! A
custom full chassis will make sure it can handle all that power.
You won't be sneaking home late with the 3 inch exhaust. When it's
not terrorizing the streets and it is just parked, it's a show
EXTERIOR: The body's outstanding, it was professionally redone. It
is straight, there's no rust or damage. The panels fit really well,
it has a fiberglass cowl hood. The red paint is polished smooth
like glass although it does have cracking. All new smoked glass.
Every piece of chrome or trim has either been replaced or restored.
Weatherstrips and seals were all replaced. It has a great stance.
15 inch polished wheels with Mickey Thompson tires, Street slicks
back. We also have the center caps.
INTERIOR: I'm sitting in this Nova and I like what I see. The metal
is painted smooth gloss red like the outside. It has genuine carbon
fiber pieces used on the dash and console. In front of me is a set
of Auto Meter gauges with carbon fiber background and a tilt column
with a cushioned grip steering wheel. Custom center console has a
modern Kenwood stereo, cup holders a B&M ratchet shifter and a
chrome e-brake handle. Down on the floor is sound deadener, premium
tight loop Daytona carpet, reproduction mats and a billet gas pedal
assembly. The seats are reupholstered, door panels are replaced.
The headliner is new, the dome light works. It has kick panel and
rear deck speakers.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Wow, I was not expecting to see a 454 big block
under the hood of a little Nova. It had a performance rebuild by
Borowski Race Enterprise; full spec sheet is included. The 454 was
bored to a 468. It was Dyno tuned, balanced and blueprinted.
Complete specs will be included. It has the big port heads, Keith
Black pistons, Comp cam and a roller timing set. On top is an
Edelbrock intake with a giant dual feed polished 830 Holley carb
with electric choke. It also has premium fittings and braided lines
with a fuel regulator. It also has coated headers and an MSD
ignition system very cool carbon fiber ever valve covers. Keeping
it cool is an aluminum water pump, braided stainless heater hoses
and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. Chrome alternator
and master cylinder. The engine bay has been reconstructed, made
smooth and painted gloss red. Stainless hardware was used
throughout. It also has tubular supports to help prevent body
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been completely boxed and carpeted. The
battery is hidden behind one of the panels and has a battery tender
pig tail. Under the trunk lid and the jamb are glossy, weatherstrip
UNDERSIDE: Custom full chassis. Upfront is a Heidts subframe with
coil over shocks, rack & pinion steering. Frame connectors tie the
front to the back. In back it has a custom frame with built in
driveshaft loop. It also has a 4 link setup with a panhard bar,
coilover gas adjustable shocks and a custom sway bar. Many of the
components were powder coated. 3 inch custom exhaust with crossover
pipe and Flowmaster mufflers. Custom fuel system with premium lines
and fittings. Disc brakes at all 4 wheels. Looking up at the motor
it has an extra capacity oil pan. DRC performance built Turbo 400
transmission with a 3100 stall, deep aluminum pan and a remote oil
cooler. New Ford 9 inch rear with Strange axles and Auburn posi.
The floors were acid etched and then sealed with Por 15.
This is a little stick of red dynamite! A 454 in a 64 Nova is the
definition of overkill. The rest of the car was built to handle it
though. Let the good times roll!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to
assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are
answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video
that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are
displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an
appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment
there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car,
your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year
