If you want attention, driving around in a car with a blower as tall as the roof is one surefire way to get it, as evidenced by this 1966 Chevrolet Nova Pro Street Wagon. Now, this two-tone drag monster is up for sale.
According to the listing, this Chevrolet Nova was originally a four-door, but it was “professionally transformed into a wagon” and now rocks a long-roof design. Draping the new body panels is a two-tone paint job, with metallic blue matched to white, plus green and orange stripes running down the sides. The corners are fitted with Weld Racing wheels, plus a set of gargantuan Mickey Thompson racing slicks in the rear.
Compared to the “look at me” exterior, the interior on this Chevrolet Nova is a bit more serious. Passengers sit in a pair of sport bucket seats with cloth upholstery, while three-point harnesses keep them from sliding around. A Hurst ratchet shifter and tilt steering wheel provide the controls, while custom gauges keep a tab on vitals. A roll cage wrapped in carbon fiber finishes it off.
The star of the show is undoubtedly the supercharged 372 cubic-inch V8, which comes topped by a TBS supercharger from The Blower Shop and dual quad Holley carbs. The ‘eight breathes through a set of Doug’s Long Tube Headers and a side exhaust.
Routing the power rearwards is a TCI Turbo 350 three-speed automatic transmission, which connects to a Dana 60 rear end and 3.73 gears.
The listing states that this Chevrolet Nova has 1,400 miles on it since the build was completed, which means it’s just broken in. “If you want something fast that can run on 93 pump gas or racing fuel, something that scares kids as you roll by, and something that turns heads anywhere it goes, look no further than this ’66 Pro Street Wagon,” the listing says.
Now, this ’67 Chevrolet Nova “street beast” is listed for sale by Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa at $47,000.
