1978 Chevrolet Nova rally custom (the nova)

Last updated Sep 2, 2010  

Photo of a 1978 Chevrolet Nova rally custom (the nova)


Got the car from my great grandmother who owned it from 1980 til 2002, during that time it mainly sat at the bottom of a mountain in west virginia before bringing it back to Indiana, and it started right up. Since then I have put in a 1970 355 chevy, not sure about hp or torque as i havent had it dynoed yet. I need to do the body work, and paint it, and some interior stuff and she'll be flying down the road once again.


chevy 355 not sure about other specs

Factory Options

rally sport package, custom package, hidden antenna, floor console, power brakes and steering,


it has a 355, with an edelbrock single plain intake, 600 cfm edelbrock carb, msd distributer, bigger cam, double roller timing chain, electric fan from a 97 lumina, pistons with 2 valve reliefs, 64cc powerpack camel hump heads, hedders of an old S10, and dual purple hornies glasspack mufflers. Not sure on how much horsepower or torque, but if anyone is sporting a similar setup and knows theirs let me know as there are no dynos near my house. I also has air shocks in the rear to help the stance.
