YOU ARE BIDDING ON A 1973 NOVA "SS" HATCHBACK. THIS CAR WAS ORIGINALY PURCHASED AS A PARTS CAR FOR ANOTHER SHOW CAR THAT WE HAVE. HOWEVER, AFTER LOOKING INTO THIS CAR AND FINDING OUT ITS HISTORY I KEPT IT TO EVENTUALLY BUILD AND HAVE HIS AND HERS NOVA'S FOR MY WIFE AND I. SINCE THEN I HAVE BUILT OTHER PROJECTS AND HAVE DECIDED TO SELL THIS ONE. THIS CAR WAS AN ORIGINAL 4 SPEED CAR AND HAD BIG BLOCK MOUNTS WHEN I GOT IT. THE OWNER INFORMED ME THAT A COMPANY CALLED NIKKI CHEVROLET IN CHICAGO FITTED THE CAR WITH A 454 BIG BLOCK FRAME CONNECTORS AND A 4 SPEED TRANS. I HAVE DONE RESEARCH BUT GOT NOWHERE!!! THERE WAS A COMPANY CALLED NIKKI CHEVROLET IN CHICAGO AT THE TIME OF THE CAR AND THE GUYS STORY DID AD UP - BUT THATS ALL WE GOT. I CONTACTED A NOVA CLUB IN MICHIGAN AND THEY INFORMED ME THAT THE CHICAGO COMPANY DID NOT KEEP EXACT RECORDS AND A FIRE IN THE LATE 70'S DID NOT LEAVE A LOT OF RECORDS AS TO WHAT CARS GOT WHAT DONE TO THEM.. SO MAYBE IT'S A MYTH OR MAYBE FACT - WHATEVER IT IS - I GOT THE CAR!
CLEAR FLORIDA TITLE!
OK NOW THAT WE ALL GOT A HISTORY LESSON LETS GET INTO THE RIDE - THIS NOVA WAS GOING TO BE ANOTHER SHOW CAR, BUT AS I FOUND MORE AND MORE PARTS IT BECAME A STREET CAR.

THEN THERE IS SOME BILLET, ELECTRIC FANS AND OTHER PERFORMANCE UPGRADES. IF SOMEONE IS BUILDING A HOT ROD THE DRIVE TRANE ALONE IS WORTH WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR THE CAR!

General Motors has officially captured the horsepower crown for mainstream pickup trucks with its 6.2-liter V8. The big mill, available in both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, comes to market with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, handily outdoing its two cross-town competitors, Ram (5.7-liter V8, 395 ponies and 407 lb-ft) and Ford (6.2-liter V8, 411 hp and 434 lb-ft).
The new GM 6.2 will take a bit of an investment, though. Those that want the extra thrust will need to go with either the LTZ or High Country trims from the Chevy, or the SLT and Denali trims from GMC, which are the two highest trim levels for the respective vehicles. Trim levels aside, if you're in the business of towing, GM has you covered. Optioned with the 6.2-liter V8 and the Max Trailering Package, owners will be able to pull 12,000 pounds, a hugely impressive figure.
We still aren't certain as to what sort of economy the new engine will get, but it'll probably be a bad bet for the fuel conscious. As for availability, expect to see the 6.2-liter trucks in showrooms later in the fall.
There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.
Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".
Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
Not including the women and men who built it, the 2014 Chevrolet SS has only been seen in person by a piddling number of people - fewer humans than would fill the gymnasium at a high school volleyball game. Not including the men and women who built it, no one has driven it. Even so, it is already saddled with two controversies: the way it looks and the way it shifts.
First to that shifting. Did we love the last Americanized Holden, the awesomely sportsome Pontiac G8 GXP, and its six-speed manual? Of course. Do we wish the SS came with a six-speed manual? Of course. But we'd like a toboggan to come with a manual transmission. We'd put a manual transmission on a weasel if we could because we're just wired that way; if it moves, it should come with a stick and a clutch. Or at least the option.
Let's climb down off the ledge, though. We haven't driven the SS and we have no idea how good (or not) the automatic is. And the Hobson's Choice in transmissions when it comes to sport sedans like the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and Jaguar XFR-S and, oh yeah, cars-that-really-should-have-manuals like the Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R and Porsche 918 and every single Lamborghini and Ferrari, for instance, hasn't stopped us from enjoying what is clearly the gruesome, dual-clutched demise of Western automotive civilization. Because in spite of our ululations at the dying of the six-speed light, we understand.
