Summer is almost here and with it come the inevitable daydreams of cruising down the street in a killer classic that looks as good as it drives – like this 1967 Pro-Touring Nova, for example.
This Nova is so thoroughly reworked it’s hard to know where to start. Nicknamed “II Much,” this gen II vehicle has been featured multiple times in Car Craft, Hot Rodding, and Popular Hot Rodding magazine.
Looking for a stock Nova? You’d better looks elsewhere, ‘cuz under the hood sits a 427 cubic-inch Wegner Automotive Research-tuned LS2 that kicks-out 620 hp through a race-prepped Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual transmission.
The car is finished in stunning PPG blue with Metallic Black accents and the folks at Road Killer Customs in Canton, Georgia took extreme care to ensure all the body panels fight tighter than they did out of the factory– there’s no rippled or warped bodywork to be seen.
The whole car sits on an Art Morrison chassis with custom designed suspension, while a Woodward rack and Wilwood brakes take car of the handling and stopping. The seller claims that the suspension, which features a custom short-long arm front-half and custom 3-link back-half, enables the car to pull over 1G on track(!)
Here are some of the other mods you’ll get:
- 12-point roll cage
- 3-piece Kinesis 18-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsas
- 4-point belts
- Moser 9-inch rear axle
- Detroit Locker differential w/3.25 gears
- Modern halogen headlamps
- Mesh-trimmed, crossbar grille
- Fiberglass bumper with a custom front spoiler
- Fiberglass cowl induction hood
- Shaved drip rails and a shaved and filled cowl
- Adjustable carbon fiber spoiler out back
- Vintage Air conditioning
- Modern audio system
- Holley throttle body
- CNC-ported and polished LS6 cylinder heads w/Holley injectors
- Lunati forged pistons, Lunati Pro Mod rods and a Lunati 4-inch crank
- Custom engine compartment, with a relocated firewall and fabricated inner fenders
- Reverse-hinge hood
- And so much more
No doubt, this is one of the craziest Nova’s we’ve ever seen and we can’t think of good reason not to hit the ‘Buy It Now’ button…other than the $139,900 outlay.
So, retirement fund or a killer Nova? You have two weeks to make your decision.
