The Want Is Real: This Small Tire Nova Is Rad And Couldn’t Be Built For This Kind Of Money!

I’m a fan of the 1968-1972 Nova, and had a big tire example for years that unfortunately spent most of its time in the garage instead of on the track. I sold it because we needed the money for other projects, but whenever I see a cool one I want one again. I’ve got too many projects right now, but someone out there in BANGshift land needs to get this one. Hell, I might be able to help with shipping! This 1969 Nova is being sold as a roller, ran in the 9’s with its previous combination, and has a long list of great components on it. BANGshifter Rocco Bastone sent this lead in to us, and we love him for it. You’ll need your engine, trans, driveshaft and a fuel pump to make it a runner, but that’s a weekend problem. It has a clean title, is ready to rock, and would look EPIC on Rocky Mountain Race Week this year. It was painted 29 years ago and still looks great to me. I think a cut and buff would make it beyond nice.  It only has a roll bar in it, so running 10.0 is all you can do legally, but converting it to a cage is a VERY easy task on one of these cars and the kit to do so can be had from Chris Alstons Chassisworks on the cheap.

I will consider any reasonable offer, worst thing I can say is “no”. I am NOT INTERESTED in trades of any sort, only cash. The title is ready to go. I will not negotiate over the phone, you must be physically here to do that. My phone # is 520-227-3360, Mon-Fri after 4 and before 9 is fine for calls & Sat/Sun anytime. Don’t need help selling it either. I am not starving so if she sells, cool and if not, she can sit here, I have plenty of room in my shop so don’t waste my time with B.S low ball offers. Thanks & God bless America

    Rocco finds some pretty cool cars. I would definitely look at this if I wasn’t north of the border during COVID. It won’t last long at that price.

    Like it, (even the boat paint job), looks like a seller has a solid idea of used race cars value, somebody is going to have a fun car
