Pete A’s 1972 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Pete A’s 1972 Nova

When Pete met Carol she was driving the 1972 Nova. She loved that car. It needed a complete restoration. After some time, she became his girlfriend and then his wife.

As time went on, they would fix up her 1972 Nova little by little. As the years went by in 2005 he lost her to cancer. So he decided to complete the restoration on her Nova in her name.

It has the original inline-six, he replaced the power glide transmission and installed a turbo 350 transmission. Installed an HEI distributor and, he chromed everything that was steel.

It has custom paint and 22″ Iroc wheels. It is done, now! He will now be just taking it to car shows and having fun driving it around.

"I have another Nova a 77 Nova hatchback. I have been ordering parts from SS396 as I need them. You have the parts that I need and get them fast."

-Pete A
