No Reserve Nova To Erupt At Barrett-Jackson

Car auctions are all about rarity, the lower the numbers in existence the higher the dollar amount they fetch and like a good dog this one-of-kind Nova stands to fetch big money.

Designed and built by Kindig-It Designs this 1966 Chevrolet Nova II SS was refurbished and customized from the ground up over a 12 months period and the result is what you see here today, magnificent. Packing a Nelson Racing 638ci aluminum-block engine the team took it further adding 96mm twin turbos, but given the extensive customization of the engine bay one could easily fail to notice. The same Mercedes Hibiscus Red which adorns most of the car that isn’t expertly chromed also finds its way into the engine bay for a seamless show car look. However, this Nova was built to run.

The custom chassis has an independent front suspension and 4-link rear suspension under a body which had its rear wheel wells stretched six-inches. Wilwood brakes sit behind the Billet Specialties Reaper wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires to bring this cherry Nova to rest. On the inside the Can Can Red leather is almost blinding completing the red on red design of the car while the modern performance touches of custom Corbeau sport seats and Dakota Digital gauges mirror the performance upgraded under the hood.

Destined to be a showstopper the one-off Nova will cross the block at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale early 2018.
