Jerry’s Custom 1965 Nova SS

Built From The Ground Up

Jerry’s Custom 1965 Nova SS

After owning this 1965 Nova SS for over 20 years and restoring it to stock once, Jerry decided that he wanted to do something really different.

He originally traded $100 worth of labor for the car and rebuilt it once. This time Jerry built the car right with a roll cage, full chassis, 2000 watt stereo system, and leather and suede interior. It doesn’t stop with the creature comforts.

According to Jerry,

“500 horsepower to the rear wheels makes for a wild ride and sitting about 2 inches off the ground makes for a cornering machine like no other!”

– Jerry
