Lou bought this 1967 Nova from his friend as a rolling chassis around 2008. Since then he’s had the opportunity to build it like he wanted it.
Lou swapped in a custom built Dart 406 small block and a 5 speed Tremec transmission per his preference. He’s also got Canfield heads, a Cola crank, and Jessel uppers for this build. This combo’s been dyno’d at 550+ horsepower to the wheels. This Nova also has exhaust cutouts, a line lock system, and is fully tubbed.
Other custom touches Lou has put to this ’67 Nova include a smoothed firewall, air conditioning and power windows, and a custom leather interior.
This 1967 Nova is very special to Lou because not only did he build it from scratch, but he purchased it from the father of his friend, who unfortunately died in a motorcycle accident.
