This is the view most folks get to see when Colbert mashes on the throttle and all 450 hp
Close friend Zur gets the credit for performing all the delicate bodywork on the '69, while Colbert personally sprayed the Nova himself in PPG Garnet Red with clearcoat. Upon completion, the car was treated to a set of traditional white vinyl Yenko SC graphics.
As can be expected, both the black vinyl interior and trunk have both been restored to 100 percent technically correct condition. The interior features the original Yenko Chevrolet-Stewart Warner 8,000-rpm tachometer and three-gauge cluster (oil, water, volt) hanging below the dash, along with the factory AM radio, rubber floormats, etc.
The same thing goes for the Deuce's trunk. It has the factory spare tire, the jack, floor mat, and even the correct jacking instruction stickers. Heck, Colbert's Nova's even got the correct-year IllinoisDealer's plate!
"I've gotten a lot of compliments on the car, and I am very pleased with the finished product," Colbert said. To date, the car has run 13.05 on bias-ply street tires, and 11.05 on slicks with open headers. What more could you ask for?
