Your Ride Is Almost Ready Lord Vader: 1970 Chevrolet Nova

You don't have to be a country music and moonshine lovin' redneck to appreciate this next slice of Americana...but it sure helps.  The 3rd generation (1968-1974) Chevrolet Nova attracts rednecks like a light-saber attracts imperial attention at a Mos Eisley tavern.  Find this 1970 Chevrolet Nova here on eBay bidding for $11,099 reserve-not-met with 4 days to go, located in Colorado Springs, CO.

This Nova is quite the modified mechanical monster -- it sports an LS2 V8 (more on that later), custom coil-overs all around, a roll cage, satin black paint, and a modified 4-link suspension out back.  This is what dumping 60 large (retail) into a car looks like when you don't have the energy to finish the last 10%...err...30% of the job.

The LS2 now displaces 392 cubic inches and puts 597 horsepower into a 4L65E slushbox that was built "Monster Transmission" to take the abuse.  The seller claims over $8k was dumped into the engine and that almost everything mechanical is brand new.

See another satin black dark lord?


  1. This will never sell in its current (CRATE) condition. Sorry bud....

  2. Hey those are the Ford looking wheels I have on my Camaro
    $60,000 invested but fool your neighbors into thinking it is a $6,000 car.
    A day of work could make this more sell-able.

  3. Not much of an american muscle guy and the spindle wheels are a little out of place but damn i think this is cool looking.
