Here we have a chevy ll nova that has been converted to a racer. This car features a fiberglass front end and doors, some lexan windows. The tube chassis is professionally done and appear to be chrome moly and has some beautifully welds. The funny car cage is large enough to fit a medium to large size driver, and only needs a few more bars to certify to 6.0. All tin work is completed and includes a trans tunnel access. The large carbon fiber wheel tubs will accomandate any tire size. The suspension consists of a strut front end, 4 link rear, 40 spline fab nine inch with axles, wishbone, anti-roll, coil over shocks and aerospace dual rear caliper brakes.
The custom rear wing fits the car perfectly and while still allows the parachute mount to work without restrictions. The deck lid is removable to allow access to the dual battery trays and custom fuel cell. The front and rear motor plates and big block headers also come with the car. Prior to starting the rehabbing, this was a consistantly seven second ride, just wanted to be lighter and faster. This car is a light weight, strong,well built car that will fit many different classes and provide years of fun. Install your drive train and electronics and go kick some butt!!
You may call 757-570-1094 for any questions. This car is sold with NO TITLE!! BILL OF SALE ONLY. Required title field did not allow choice for no title. Seller reserves to right to end auction at any time as this car is advertized elsewhere also. Buyer responsible for all shipping costs. Thanks
General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
It seems to be commonplace that when a new Corvette is in development, rumors swirl about a possible mid-engine layout. As is the case of Chevy's most recent C7 Corvette, these rumors never pan out.
In any case, the idea for a 'Vette with an engine mounted behind the driver can probably all be traced back to a single car, the 1964 XP-819 prototype. Built as an "engineering exercise" back in 1964, the prototype was designed with a rear-mounted engine. History tells us that the idea of a rear-engine Corvette fizzled, and the XP-819 was eventually cut up into pieces and stored at a shop in Daytona Beach, FL.
After sitting for untold years, a restoration project started on the car, and while it isn't yet fully completed, the current owner of the car, Mid America Motorworks, will have the car on display at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance as a "driveable chassis" with hopes of having a fully completed car ready to bring to next year's show.
It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.
It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.
