The Barrett-Jackson auction at Scottsdale will see a 1967 Chevy Nova custom 2-door hardtop cross the block with no reserve during the week of January 12th to 19th. The bright blue Nova is equipped with a sleeved and stroked Wegner Automotive Research LS2 427 cubic-inch powerplant and TKO-600 5-speed manual transmission. A Moser Engineering 9-inch resides in the rear complete with nodular iron third member, Truetrac differential, 3.25 ratio, and 31-spine axles.
The Nova has been highly-popular as far as print media goes and has been featured in at least nine magazines, including the cover spot of Popular Hot Rodding – a SIM compatriot magazine – in October 2007. Affectionately nicknamed “II Much,” the car was rebuilt from the ground up sparing no expenses.
Suspension is handled by a Katz Tsubai custom-designed and track-proven set-up, and stopping power is provided by huge Wilwood brakes. An Art Morrison chassis and one-of-a-kind floor, firewall, and trunk are all custom touches as well. The Nova also features a specially-built 1 ¾-inch stainless steel headers, a 3-inch exhaust with X-pipe and bumper outlet, and a custom-built 16-gallon baffled aluminum fuel cell with external Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump and controller.
The color of the car is stunning and the look really comes together with the help of Kinesis K18 3-piece rims, which feature dark centers and brushed hoops wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
The Wegner Automotive Research 427 produces 600 horses thanks to a Lunati rotating assembly, cam, and Wegner valvetrain on CNC-ported LS6 heads.
Inside reside black Sparco Monza race seats, an Ididit tilt column with Borgeson U-joints, and Sparco 3-spoke racing wheel with pull-off hub. The air-conditioning blows cold around a Vintage Air Gen IV Magnum evaporator and black anodized controls. Tunes reach passengers through an integrated iPod/iPhone stereo with trunk-mounted amp, subwoofer and 5-speaker stereo.
