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
It won't be long before we see the official, production-ready Chevrolet SS sedan (hint: it will be revealed this weekend). And to tide us over until all of the official details are released about the US-spec version, we have this: the Holden VF Commodore SS V show car, a performance-oriented brother to the Calais V that debuted earlier in the week.
What we really want to know about the SS V is what lies underhood, but General Motors' Australian arm is keeping that under wraps until the Chevy model breaks cover this weekend. Nevertheless, it's obvious that the SS V will be a serious performer, with all sorts of aggressive cues driving that home on the car's exterior. Take a look at those 20-inch billet aluminum wheels that hide big Brembo brake calipers up front, the sculpted hood and front fascia, the wide air intakes with LED running lights and the quad exhaust pipes out back. It's like the Pontiac G8 GXP never even left us.
Inside, there's a sporty-looking interior with aluminum accents that mix in with black leather and suede surfaces, all tied together in the middle with an eight-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It looks great, and again, while we don't know anything regarding powertrain details, it makes us oh-so happy to see a manual shifter smack dab in the middle of the center console.
The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
