Complete frame of restoration completed in May 2014. All new sheet metal was installed using the butt weld method as opposed the overlap method which allows moisture between panels. Entire body was sandblasted prior to paint and body work. The car was painted in pieces and then carefully reassembled. The following is a list of the cars features.
The body is painted Inferno Red Pearl with Silver accent stripes, then clear coated, block sanded and polished. All Dupont products were used. Complete chrome package was installed including rocker moldings, wheel opening moldings, roof drip moldings and window frame trim. The SS trim was installed and everything was done to keep the original appearance of the classic 72 Nova SS.
Chevy 383 stroker, 4 bolt roller block, everything in this motor is new except the block. Speed pro pistons, Scat 7/16 cap bolt rods, and an Eagle crankshaft with Clevite 77 bearings make up the balanced rotating assembly. Competition Roller cam, Delphi roller lifters, Comp Cams 1.5 roller rockers with moly pushrods make up the valve train. The Dart Platinum cylinder heads are topped with complete Tune Port injection with ported TPIS Big mouth intake, Plenum and large tube runners. Built with power and dependability in mind.
Muncie close ratio 4 speed trans is completely rebuilt with a Hurst shifter.
Rear end differential is a Big GM 8.5 with all new 3.23 ring and pinion, New Eaton positraction unit, all new Timken bearings with new axles.
Brakes and suspension
Tubular front A arms, all new Moog ball joints, idler arm and tie rod ends attached to a new GM quick ratio power steering box. Front and rear sway bar package. Front and back disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors and Ceramic brake pads. Wheels are 15x7 GM rally wheels painted Argent Silver with chrome
center caps and trim rings.
The interior features factory AC, Power front and rear windows by Nu Relic, and keyless entry. Sound system is from Auto Classic sound with speakers in the doors and a rear package shelf that is custom upholstered. The gauge panel was custom made with all Auto Meter gauges, next to the oil pressure and water temp gauges you will see additional factory warning lights. LEDs were used for the signal and high beam indicators all set in a carbon fiber face. The original factory console was extended to add cup holders and a custom gauge pod was created to hold the clock and vacuum gauge. New black bucket seats with recline were added and the rear set was upholstered to match. Dyna mat type sound deadener was installed throughout the interior prior to installing new black MAS backed carpet, trim panels and new retractable black seat belts. The trunk area is completely redone in the original gray splatter paint.
On a project like this there is probably more that can be said than what is listed. I am more than happy to answer all questions by serious buyer.
