1970 Nova SS 396 Big Block > Tremec T-56 Magnum 6 Speed Transmission > Ice Cold A/C > Fantastic Performance on Pump Gas
If you have an old Nova SS that you want to restore consider this.. You can buy this completed high quality nut and bolt restoration for less than youre going to spend on parts alone.
Like buying the parts used for the build at a deep discount and getting free labor and free car.You certainly cant come close to duplicating this build for $39,000.00 and it would likely be quite a task even finding another 1970, big block, 6 speed , A/C Nova SS currently available on the market at any price.
When I built this car my goal was to build a car that would perform around town like a high performance muscel car but also have the ability to get onto the interstate and cruise long distances in comfort without the sensation that Im stuck in 3rd gear. Im proud to say Ive nailed it. Yes you can have your cake and eat it too.You dont have to sacrafice performance to be able to cruise comfortably at highway speeds.
800 Break in miles only.
I once heard someone comment that a mans car is an extension of his penis. How cool would it be if that were true and this was your car.
This is a fresh frame off nut and bolt restoration finished in 2013. Ive had my fun with it Im done showing it off. Its run its course time to move on to another project.
This is NOT a documented original matching # engine and drivetrain car nor is it being priced or promoted as such. While I do appreciate an all original matching # drive train car I always find the performance disapointing.
This Nova was born a genuine 4 speed big block SS Car
Tremec T-56 Magnum 6 speed transmission. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of driving a T-56 this is a truly remarkable piece of equipment. Shifts like a precision instrument. Almost like having a vertical gate shifter 1st through 4th gear no missing gears. 1st through 4th is a close ratio 4 speed , 5th .80 and 6th.63 are overdrives. You can enjoy the outstanding performance of the close ratio 4 speed matched to a 5.13 rear axle and still get on the interstate and cruise all day long in cool comfort.
NOTE: If you are a buyer who prefers a high performance automatic transmission arrangemenrt rather than a manual transmission I will gladly exchange the manual transmission for a high performance automatic transmission set up at no additional cost..

This car is very fast and is a blast to drive.Traction bars do a good job helping it stick to the pavement.
On launch squats down nicely leaves straight and hard. Very little wheel spin easy to control and pins you back into the seat. Gets your blood flowing better than 2 shots of expresso.
