LSII, '66 Nova
This 1966 Chevy II Nova came to the Speedtech shop as a half built drag car that looked like it had taken a serious back burner. After a plan was decided, the car was stripped down and the new Pro-Touring style build-up began to unfold. The Nova's body now rests on a full tube chassis sporting Corvette C5 front and a custom built triangulated 4 link rear suspension. Power comes from a 500 hp LS2 and and is transferred from a T56 into a Strange sheet metal 9 inch Ford rear and BIG Wilwood brakes put the whoa on it all. The full custom interior features Recaro seats, one-off designed gauges housed in a custom dash, and a custom console surrounding an Alpine touch screen DVD. The 2000 watt full pounding stereo features Focal speakers and Audison Amps. The reborn and smoothed Nova's sheetmetal includes subtle body mods like shaved door handles, tucked and narrowed bumpers, driving lights frenched into the front bumper, custom hood scoops and lower rear quarter panel exhaust cutouts. A proprietary blend of green pearl paint and custom emblems tie it all up. A killer low stance drops the car over the Intro 19 x 8 and 20 x 15 wheels wrapped in BFG KDW's up front and Mickey Thompson 29 x 18.5 x 20's in the rear. The car speaks subtle attitude, even while sitting still.
