Neal’s 1972 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Neal’s 1972 Nova

This is Neal’s 1972 Nova from Athens, Ohio. The Nova originally was a 307ci, 350 Turbo HydaMatic, 2:73 gears, with power steering and air conditioning when new. Neal’s Nova is still the original color: Sequoia Green.

Neal has since installed a 1978 350 small block with 4 bolt mains and 1972 1.94 heads. He also installed an Edelbrock Performer intake along with a 600 cfm carburetor, an MSD ignition, Flowmaster 40 series exhaust and coated headers by Hedman in his 1972 Nova.

Neal doesn’t just keep this car in the garage; he enjoys it, having driven it in 10 states so far. Neal has even taken this 1972 Nova on a 1,000 mile road trip through Canada before returning to Ohio!
