  • This Nova SS was purchased in 2001 as a nearly complete car in need of full restoration. Originally a 194 6-cylinder with a powerglide. It was restored in that configuration in 2006 receiving extensive body work paint and many NOS replacement parts. Body work and painting were completed by Classic Automotive Restorations, Inc. In Belews Creek, North Carolina. I completed all mechanical and assembly. It has won many awards including a First grand Nation with the AACA, and it has been twice nominated for national AACA awards. It won best original restored at the 2013 Nova Nationals in Charlotte NC, a first in class at the 2009 super Chevy show and too many other local show awards to mention. Since then, a correct L74 327 and M-20 4-speed were assembled and put into the car with a 12-bolt posi added this year to complete the transformation.
