1970 "Super Nova" Funny Car - built, owned & driven by Randy Walls.

The 100% original restoration of a Chevy Nova was restored with a 6-71 blower, Hilborn 4 port injection on a big block, and a trend setting chassis with a 20 inch wide frame (compared to the 36" standard in those early years).

Historic Reconstruction Details: Engine: A Chevrolet 427 block with Hilborn injection and 6.71 GMC blower to burn off the nitro. Aluminum heads. Inside is a Schneider roller cam and valve train with Manely stainless-steel valves and Crower rocker arms and valve springs. It is driven by a set of JE pistons and Howard connecting rods in an original GM cast-iron block. It was then backed up with a Lenco three-speed transmission, direct drive with a Crowerglide Clutch encased in a Pro Bell bell housing.

Rear: Lenco Ford 9 inch

Chassis: Pro-Built Byron Blair chassis for this 1970 Chevy Nova.

Race certification ready: Randy says, "All this car needs to race is the 3 Safety Blanks, new rear tires and a chassis inspection by NHRA (it will pass) and then turn 6.5 second et's at 215-220 mph real easy." Call Don at 619-804-8033 or John at 760-402-0128 for more information or pictures. Price: $70,000
