Chevrolet Performance unveiled a unique 1967 Chevrolet Nova project at their booth on the HOT ROD Power Tour 2015. The car was built in three weeks by a group of Chevrolet Performance and Motorsports technicians headed by Larry Hebert and Bill Graham.

The Nova is powered by a 2.0 L LTG Gen3 Ecotec crate engine and thanks to the twin-scroll turbo running 20 psi of boost, the engine produces 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The rest of the drivetrain consists of a LTG six-speed manual transmission and a solid-axle 12-bolt rear end.

The car now holds a near 50/50 weight distribution and weighs 3,100 lbs. The team is looking forward to getting the car on the autocross course to show off the performance.

    This is really a cool looking car. I wish I could see it at the track. I looked all over and couldn’t find what that engine is supposed to weigh. I’m thinking we are going to see a lot more of this kind of swap. The V-6 Twin turbo would have been a good choice, but has to be a couple hundred pounds heavier. The I-4 is supposed to push the 3400 lb caddy down the quarter in 14 point something seconds, so a 3100 Nova that handles should be a sight to behold…

    • I got to see it in person and it is was amazing. Very clean and factory looking with just a touch of custom here and there. I am sure they will release videos of it at the track.

    Awesome build, but I want to point out that the LTG and the six speed trans are shipped configured for RWD, not FWD or AWD. It’s meant to go in packages like this. Check Chevy’s performance catalog.

    Love this car.It is a shame that GM did such a poor job launching and pushing the crate motors. It quickly became an overpriced piece with no support
