Tim S’s 1969 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Tim S’s 1969 Nova

Tim has owned this 1969 Nova since 1979 when he bought it off his brother who owned it since it was new in 1969.

Tim has rebuilt both the engine and drivetrain and re-did the 1969 Nova’s bodywork over the years. Most recently Tim has done a frame-off restoration on the Nova to bring it back to its pristine 1969 roots.

Today Tim’s 1969 Nova Super Sport has a 350 small block power plant bored .030 over putting down around 400 horsepower! For a transmission, Tim went for a Muncie 4 speed connected to a 12-bolt rear end utilizing 3.73 gears. The color is a stunning metal flake indigo blue. Tim says;

“I could never sell this car, way too many memories of years of street racing and fun.”
