Mark S’s 1972 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Mark S’s 1972 Nova

Mark purchased his 1972 Nova about 10 years ago and has been upgrading and modifying her ever since he got her. They sold their 1974 Nova and 1988 Iroc-z to buy the 1972 Nova. He has been in love with the car ever since!

The 1972 Nova is Running a 468ci Big Block Chevrolet and a Tremec TKO 5-speed with a Chevy 12 bolt rear end with 3:73 gears and Yukon center and axles.

They made the cover of Hot Rod magazine in February of 2022!!! It was a great surprise and honor, VERY COOL!!!

They run the long haul on the Hot Rod power tour every year for the past 8 years and the car runs beautifully!! They have been modifying her a bit every year and have plans to start more suspension upgrades this year.

"Have been shopping with you guys for years and have never had any issues, always a pleasant experience and great value and parts selection. "

-Mark S
