You are looking at a custom miniature 1970 Chevy Nova that was built by Darrell Hurt. The body was created using plywood and foam for the shape to which fiberglass was applied and removed. The body sits over a custom tube chassis with a Ford Mustang front suspension. The powertrain consists of a 1199 cc inline-four and six-speed transmission from a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R and a Toyota 8-bolt rear end. The engine produces 185 horsepower which is a lot for a “car” that weighs 1,200 lbs. The car also happens to be street legal car with a Missouri title. Watch it drive on the street in traffic in the video below.
