1969 Nova

Engine: F1X Procharged 402" LSx

Body/Exterior: Minitubbed, rear quarters slightly flared, shaved molding and antenna

Front End: Tubular uppers, CE shocks

Transmission: Hughes 4L80E with Tbrake

Rear End: 9", Aluminum center section, 35spline moser axles, back braced, built by AZ Differential, Cal Tracs & Split Monos

Exhaust: Hooker LS swap headers, dual 3" with H-pipe and Jones max flow mufflers

Wheels/Tires: 17x8.5 & 17x11 Billet Specialties Street Lites, 345/40 Toyo DR, 215/50 Toyo extensa

Interior: 4th gen TA power bucket seat, Holley EFI digital dash

Electrical: Holley Dominator EFI

Sound system: Pioneer with Bluetooth

Additional Comments: Car is driven frequently. I bought it in November of 2013 with a carb'd 347" 11:1 LS motor, TH350 (manual valve body) and a minispool in the stock 8.2". The motor was fresh and the car was apart. My good friend through the car together and with about 200 miles on it, we took off from Phoenix, AZ to Freeburg, IL. It was an amazing trip. More fun than I've had in a long time. I drove it like that for a bit then put the 9" under it, then the 4L80/ Procharged LSx combo, then I tore it down again to rewire, paint, change the intake, cam, intercooler....blah blah blah. Anyway, it's been great. My son is very involved and the whole family rides along. Super blessed to be able to do this. The car is a compilation of 10 years of side work, buying/selling, swapping, trading and flipping. It's not been easy, but it's close to being exactly what I want.

Man..... This is HARD to pick a good one....... They ARE all GREAT Cars.....

and, I really like '69s.... but..... I 'm liking AJ's best......
It takes a lot to remove your V 8 and go to the SIX......

I've always been 'little different...... meaning......" I'm a six cyl guy from the ol' days" (all that I could afford back then).

Thanks Guys for bringing some very fine cars to SNS

jim

MAIN THING is to VOTE for your choice....
