There's no passing up a red muscle car, especially at the 2013 SEMA Show. That said, we couldn't hep but showcase this Glasurit Fire Red, 1967 Chevrolet Nova sitting in the Magnaflow exhuast booth. Owner Jimmy Shaw has always shared an affinitiy to the Nova; even owning a couple of them. However, this one couldn't just be a cruiser. It had to handle, stop and have the stance of some of our late-model favorites.
This Nova is not your run of the mill shoebox. Instead, it's sporting a plethora of one-off custom pieces and a powerplant to make any enthusiats envious. For power, this '67 relies on an LSX 376 fitted with custom valve covers and sheetmetal intake manifold. Of course, all that power runs through a TREMEC 6-speed transmission. To get this platfrom to hook and turn, Greening Auto Company (Car builder) applied a cure by adding in Detroit Speed and Engineering suspension on all four corners.
The Nova rolls on a set of large, custom GAC wheels while Baer brakes were added to get this thing to slow down and stop. Of course, that's not all either. Inside the cabin you'll a find a custom Paul Atkins interior and a variety of additional custom machined pieces including the steering wheel, shifter and pedals all. By far, this is one of the cleanest Novas we've seen in quite a while.
