1962 Chevrolet Nova Pro Street
VOLO AUTO MUSEUM
Volo, IL 60073
Only 1,529 miles on this professionally built pro street. From top to bottom it is custom show quality.
EXTERIOR: It certainly has that tough look that gets noticed. The motor sticks through the hood with big polished air scoop, the exhaust exits right through the 1/4 panels and of course the rear tires about as wide as a Mack truck. High gloss red finish on a straight body. Jambs are slick with new weatherstrips. Lift off hood and bumpers are weight saving fiberglass. Polished Weld wheels with Mickey Thompson tires. Has battery cut off switch in back.
INTERIOR: Has a full roll cage painted gloss red. 2 racing bucket seats with racing harness. Has a custom wheel on polished tilt column. Full set of Pro Comp gauges and Hurst ratchet shifter. The door panels are tweed with raised patterns. Fully carpeted including rear compartment.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has a built 350 motor with polished Dyers blower and dual chromed Holley carbs. The bay is gloss red, has chrome alternator. There are support bars from the firewall to the chassis. The motor runs cool with the help of an aluminum water pump, radiator and dual electric fans.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Has fiberglass lift off trunk. There is a plastic fuel cell and the battery is mounted in a plastic shell. The trunk is carpeted.
UNDERSIDE: Full custom chassis and floors. There is absolutely nothing under this car from a 62 Nova. The frame is custom built- up front is round tubular painted red gloss, firewall back is square tube painted gloss black. The floors are completely constructed from scratch using aluminum, all professionally done. Upfront it has a Heidts front end with chrome tubular control arms, coil over adjustable gas shocks, chrome sway bar, rack & pinion power steering, disc brakes with polished components. Bottom of the motor still looks new. Has oversized oil pan high torque starter. The trans is a performance built turbo 400 with finned aluminum pan, new driveshaft. In back it has a narrowed 9 inch with 4 link suspension, panhard bar coil over gas shocks and disc brakes. The body has been tubbed to accommodate monster size tires. There is an electric fuel pump with braided fuel lines. Custom 3 inch powder coated exhaust with X pipe and stainless mufflers. Underneath this car had a fortune spent and it still looks new.
This is one tough muscle car. Ready to rumble. It was used for going to cruise nights, not raced. The cost to build would be double what we are asking!
