For the pure freak factory, this could be the weirdest single car I have ever posted on BangShift. Not weird in the sense that it is horribly ugly or looks like it was victimized by a bad plastic surgeon, but weird in the sense that someone looked at a 1970 Nova and decided that they wanted to built it with a big rig theme. Not content to just put some “super singles” on the back and make it look like a pro street car, the builder of this Nova went whole hog. We’re talking 4BT Cummins diesel engine, side pipes so it sounds like a pissed off bread truck, dually style rear wheels, truck tires, an eyebrow the likes of which you’d see on a Kenworth, Alcoa style eight lug wheels all around, a fake trailer air line hanging off the back, a CB inside the cab, and a fake fifth wheel painted on the trunk. The builder went ALL IN.
The Nova is for sale on eBay and the asking price is, wait for it, waaaaiiittt for it, $35,000. A classic case of someone who spend half their life building a “one of one” car which answered a question that they were the only one on Earth actually asking. If someone buys that car for $35,000 I’ll eat my computer without even boiling it or anything. Granted, it was first for sale with an asking price of $75,000 a year ago so $35,000 is a huge “bargain” but I bet it is still about $30,000 high.
There are elements of the car that I actually like. The stance is pretty gnarly as are the wheels and tires. The eyebrow, all the fake stuff, and even the 4BT just aren’t working for me. Shocking, because I normally love championing all thing diesel powered no matter how weird but this is something that just goes a little too far. The little four banger Cummins is probably peppy enough and maybe it can turn the tires but with a Turbo 400 and 4.10 gears, the top speed of that car is going to be way down there because the engine redlines at about 3,800 RPM.
