Richard S’s 1974 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Richard S’s 1974 Nova

Well, Richard has been waiting for about 30 years to find the right Nova. He had a 1970 Nova when he was 16, and he LOVED THAT CAR! He happened to find this 1974 Nova in Middlesboro, Kentucky. When this BEAUTIFUL CAR showed up on the internet, he called to ask about it and drove 14 hours one way and bought it.

Awesome car, he loves it! Now trying to get this 1974 Nova Street Machine-Deuces Wild car all done, watch for the pics you will understand.

This 1974 Nova has a 402 big block .040 over, turbo 400 trans with shift kit 2800-3200 stall converter, 12 bolt posi with 373 gears, side pipes, all MSD ignition, Edelbrock heads, intake, AVS2 800 cfm carb, and more.

The car is special because of the paint, STREET MACHINE strip, side pipes, L88 hood scope, it looks great. AWESOME CAR!!!!!!!!!!

Car shows!!!!!!! He plans to try to win at car shows, travel, and show people the car.

"Good prices, fast delivery, nice people to talk too."

-Richard S
