This project proves you don’t need a lot of money to build a very capable pro-touring classic. The owner claims it was “built cheap” with a lot of the hardware purchased from a junkyard or Craigslist. The drivetrain consists of a 468ci big-block Chevy V8 and M21 close ratio four-speed transmission. The suspension has also been upgraded with Ride Tech control arms, QA-1 coil overs, and Hotchkiss two-inch drop leafs. The brakes were sourced from a 2000 Camaro SS and the 16:1 ratio steering box from a 1990 IROC. These upgrades give the Nova a level of performance GM never intended.
