The eBay Nova gets Edelbrock heads, intake and 750 carb

eBay? Yes. Nova? You bet. eBay Nova? Huh?

When eBay approached select Primedia enthusiast publications (in our particular realm, SUPER CHEVY, Popular Hot Rodding, Car Craft, and Chevy High Performance) with the idea of building a car with new parts purchased from the eBay Motors website, we gladly took the challenge to show 'em how it was done.

eBay furnished each group with $25,000 toward the purchase and modification of the vehicle. We got lucky and found a cherry '72 Nova SS online the first day. Ultimately, all the entries will show their moxie in a track day challenge (that will have been completed by the time you read this). Then the car(s) will be auctioned off on eBay and the proceeds forwarded to Charity Cars Inc.

When the areas of modification (suspension, wheels/tires, engine, and air conditioning) were divvied up, we chose the intake manifold and cylinder head swap because it keenly relates to our readers and because it calls out two of the most widely performed modifications in hot street car land. Cool down now, sit back, and watch as the team at Johns Customz & Performance preps the motor with Edelbrock, Comp Cams, and ARP goodies.
