Tony found this 1968 Nova during the summer of 1987 while riding motorcycles with a friend. It was sitting at a very small service station when it caught Tony’s eye.
The 1968 Nova was essentially done and fully restored. He would go on to purchase this Nova from the third owner and still owns it to this day. Tony’s only made some minor alterations such as some “day 2” modifications to this 1968 Nova SS L48 car, and it only has 35k original miles.
The drivetrain is a small block 350 making about 400 horsepower. It has 202 heads, a mild cam, Torker intake, and a Holley 750 cfm carburetor to achieve that result. Power is shifted via a numbers matching Muncie 4 speed, which Tony believes to be an M22 “rock crusher”.
Future plans include a fresh set of new brakes on all four corners, as well as a new exhaust. The L48/M22 could also use a refresh at this point, so he’ll likely take care of that in the near future as well.
