Little Falls, Minnesota, United States

I am selling my 1971 Nova SS.  This is one of the cleanest Nova’s you will find.  The car was originally sold at Purvis-Taylor Chevrolet in Crystal Springs Mississippi on February 2nd, 1971.  I have the original owner’s manual and a binder with the receipts documenting the Frame-off Restoration that was completed in 2006.  There is over $40,000 invested in the Frame-off Restoration and the car has been driven less than 1,500 miles since the restoration. The car was factory ordered with air conditioning and was also factory ordered with the rare radio delete option.  This car is in beautiful condition and has won multiple 1st place and Best of Show Awards.


The engine is not numbers matching.  It is a modern crate 350 with a 4 bolt main that has been stroked to a 383 with many upgrades.  It has high volume oil pump, steel crank, Jessell aluminum rods, Jessell high performance pistons, Pro-line aluminum heads, Pro-line aluminum intake, Barry Grant Demon Carburetor, MSD 6AL Ignition, new alternator, fully functional AC and Power Steering, 150 HP shot of Nitrous (Only been used for show purposes, has never been filled or ran through car) and a lot of chrome and polished parts.  The car has not been put on a Dyno but is estimated to be approximately 450 HP.

The transmission is a Richmond 5-speed backed by a Ram Heavy Duty clutch and Lakewood shatterproof bell housing.  Shifting the gears is done by a HURST shifter.

The exhaust begins with full length 3 inch Jet Coated headers that flow into Pypes Violator mufflers.  The exhaust exits in the factory location and is 3 inch from front to back.  This setup gives the car an amazing sound that you must hear in person.

The rear end is a Currie 9 inch with 3.73 gears, Posi, and heavy duty Currie 33 spline axles.  It has adjustable CAL-TRAC traction bars that have been installed along with sub-frame ties.

The brakes have been completely upgraded to 4 wheel BAER power disc brakes that are drilled and vented.

The wheels on this car are American Racing Torque Thrust II that are wrapped in Fuzion ZRI tires.  The fronts are 225/55/16 and the rears are 255/50/17.



The interior is mostly original with the exception of front seat covers and carpet.  The headliner, dash pad, door panels and rear seat are all original and in excellent condition.  The front seats have been recovered and new carpet has been installed.  There are also new Chevrolet floor mats in the front and back.  All of the interior is in excellent condition there is no rips, cracks, or stains.  Everything works great including all the lights, gauges and switches.



This car retains all of its original sheet metal.  There is absolutely no rust anywhere on this car.  This car is laser straight and all factory seams line up excellent.  The doors, hood and trunk shut with ease just like new.  The original numbers are still stamped in the quarters.  The trunk is finished with factory speckle paint.  All of the chrome, glass and moldings are in excellent condition and have a brilliant shine to them.  The car is finished with a PPG base coat/clear coat Marina Blue paint that looks amazing.  The paint is laser straight and has amazing depth.

If you are looking for a car that you can take to shows, have fun driving, and be proud to own this is the car for you.  This car runs, drives, handles, and looks great.  It can be driven anywhere, and was part of the Power Tour in 2010.  The car is always stored in a climate controlled garage and is always covered with a custom fitted car cover (included with the car).  The car is only driven on nice days and has not seen rain or bad weather since the restoration.  The car is Frame-off Restored and no corners have been cut, everything was done right.  Everything on this car is in beautiful condition, including the underside which is as nice as the top.  The underside has been completely painted black and is in excellent condition.  I have done my best describing the car as accurately and detailed as possible, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  Also, if you would like any additional pictures of the car contact me and I can take them and send them to you.

Payment: A $1,000 non refundable payment is due within 48 hours of auction close.  The remaining balance is due within 7 days of auction close. Remaining balance must be paid by cash in person, or verified cashiers check or bank draft.

Shipping: Buyer is responsible for vehicle pickup, and if the car needs to be shipped the buyer is responsible for all shipping costs and arrangements.

Corvette Stingray Shooting Brake under consideration by Callaway [w/poll]

Mon, 18 Mar 2013

Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.
Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?

2014 Chevy Silverado High Country spied wearing trappings of new luxury trim

Wed, 03 Apr 2013

Spy photographers have spotted the new Chevrolet Silverado High Country and GMC Sierra Denali out on public streets for a little testing. From the looks of things, the Silverado will receive a much-differentiated front fascia along with special badges and those honking 20-inch chrome wheels. Expect to find a more posh interior as well. Likewise, the Sierra Denali will wear a tweaked nose with the familiar Denali bling. The one of the GMC trucks spotted here rolls on 21-inch gunmetal wheels instead of the 20-inch chrome pieces of the High Country.
Word has it both trucks will go on sale after the Texas State Fair this summer. While General Motors hasn't said for certain what we can expect to find under the hood, we'd be surprised to see anything outside of the range of engines found in the standard Silverado and Sierra models. That means buyers should be able to get their hands on the efficient, 23-miles per gallon 5.3-liter V8.

Watch NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon put one over on a used car dealer... sorta

Wed, 13 Mar 2013

Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.
Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.
