Mr. Dove's 1965 Chevrolet Nova SS

Nova SS emblem.

Mr. Dove and his 1962 Chevrolet Nova

We did not build this vehicle, but we recently refurbished it and made some upgrades that Mr. dove felt were needed to perfect it. We over-hauled the brake system, replaced fuel lines, and installed a trans-cooler and roll-control, and added tubular from A-arms. We also performed regular maintenance like a tune-up and header gasket replacement.

This '65 Nova is powered by a GM ZZ430 crate motor hooked up to a Rick Roach-built Turbo 400 with a Hurst Quarter Stick shifter.

The rear end was tubbed to make room for those Micky Thompsons. They're attached to a narrowed
9-inch housing has been modified using a 4.11-equipped Trac-Loc and a set of Moser axles.

The boxed chassis uses a body-channeled-over-frame design.

Those are Cragar Street Star wheels.

SS stand for "Super Sport", and that definately applies to this car.
