Robert S’s 1972 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Robert S’s 1972 Nova

It was Thanksgiving weekend 2018 when Robert bought his 1972 Nova.

Robert had two Novas back in the mid-70s when he graduated from high school. He has always had a love for them.

Unfortunately, like many others, he sold them then went into the military. He spent 30 years in the military and away from the muscle car scene.

He retired just a few years ago, and it has afforded him the chance to own one again. Bring back some of his younger years with these cars.

The 1972 Nova SS is not completely done, it’s a work in progress. He plans on turning it into a resto-mod. For now, it has a 383 stroker engine and 200-4R transmission. He plans to do a complete overhaul from front to back on the car.
