1965 Nova

Garage Hot Rods shared John’s 1965 Nova that has a new crank and rods from SCAT Crankshafts. Although this hot rod looks stock on the outside, it is hiding a healthy small block Chevy, a 4-speed Muncie and 12-second ETs which has allowed it to run a 12.90 second, 108 mph quarter-mile pass.

The current engine is a 350, bored .030 over, resulting in 355 cubic inches. Additionally, the piston/head combination produces a 9.6:1 compression ratio. John worked on all aspects of the car including the restoration of the body and made sure to complete it with the right trim pieces and badges.

John is proud to say:

“100% of the work was done at home in a single car garage on a tight budget. This car has never been in a shop for anything.”
