Is this the fastest pro touring Nova? We think so.

Dan Ballard’s 1972 Chevy Nova clocks 11.11 at 126mph on the quarter mile on 200 Treadware tires.

It put down 571 hp to the rear tires at 6800 rpm before the driveshaft broke.

You’ll see Dan running this car around the auto cross or road course at local shows. He also drives it on the street!

This highly customized mini-tubbed 1972 with 60,000 original miles also has the original paint, stock sub-frame, and bumpers.
