1971 Chevrolet Nova Race Car

  • 10 Bolt Differential 4.10 gears

Found in storage in Modesto, CA, originally built in Texas in the 70’s as a purpose built drag car. We wanted to keep the 70’s drag car styling but update the car to make it not only street legal but reliable. We outfitted the car with a 383ci roller motor, aluminum gas tank with fuel sending unit and Holley electric pump. Also new wiring for vehicle lights and engine charging. What we came up with was a legitimate street / strip car that is visually true to the 70’s drag era.
