This drivable dreamsicle conjures up summer days and sunsets at the beach with good times, good friends, and rock-n-roll!

It’s hard NOT to smile when you spy this ride, even if your eyes are burnin’ from the blazing Tangelo Pearl and Pearl White color scheme, polished trim, and sunburst glints off the Billet Specialties wheels. This Nova wagon came to visit the V8 Speed and Resto Shop for completion… it was a project that started in spare time, but needed more focus to see the finish line.

A Focus on Custom Style and Performance

This Nova is powered by an Edelbrock Pro-Flo fuel-injected 350 Chevy stuck to a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. A Vintage Air Frontrunner keeps the spinning things inline up front, including the A/C compressor, alternator, steering pump, and all the black hard-coated pulleys. A lumpy cam is heard through the Hooker headers and custom pipes, while the Nova is more sure-footed thanks to a Heidt’s front end, Wilwood disc brakes, and Continental-wrapped Billet Specialties wheels.

Inside, a full diamond-stitched custom interior is the place to be, with amped-up sounds and cool air conditioning to keep the hot sun at bay.

We completed various tasks all over this car to bring it all together, and we all really dig it. It arrived to the V8 Speed and Resto Shop already painted with the interior in place, but it still needed a lot of help to be a reliable and fun cruiser.
