SS nova full restoration


by | Dec 7, 2013 | Restoration

So here is a story of a 1970 SS BIG BLOCK NOVA MUSCLE Car from the Brady bunch Here

This Particular car Has a Sunnex 502 big-block with an Iskey Crank Crower cam and Brodex heads and on top of all that was a Littlefield blower and 2-1150  cfm Demon carbs all with a clutched automatic .. wow now that we got that out of the way.

You will notice that this SS Nova is Black with the shaved door handles kinda going for the Vin diesel Look 🙂

The grille is blacked out while all the rest of the chrome is factory OEM

I think its safe to say that the car Dyno-ed out without the blower at 925 HP with the Littlefield Blower it was upwards of 1100 hp

The body on Original 1970 Big block Nova Muscle car was rust free it was an x race car since the early  70s and it was exceptionally clean when we removed the front and rear windshield to our surprise NO RUST!

QUICK VIDEO TO CHECK OUT OF A FEW Restoration Projects we completed

I was shocked! being in the classic car restoration business since 14  years old I have seen just about everything especially from being up north where they salt the roads it is very rare to see a clean car with ZERO rust!

You will notice the Lazar straight body Due to countless hours of Block Sanding and Prep

the key to a project like this is to use a good quality filler and once you have body blocked correctly

to apply a spray poly — I used Debeer spray poly on this Job its a catalyzed polyester primer

that you need a special gun with a very large gun fluid tip and nozzle to actually get the liquid to move from the spray gun

It is like spraying mud and is Well worth it when it comes time to longboarding and making the car straight.

Below in this picture, you will notice I have the car in the Car-o-liner  frame rack so while I’m cutting the car loose we don’t lose the measurements ..We had to cut the perfectly good quarter panels off the car Just to get access oh the rear Minni tubs we Minni tubed this car to allow for the big slicks >

There she is after 150 Man hours I believe that this ground ponder is ready to burn some rubber!


We  used High Build Black Debeer urethane primer on the   1970 SS BIG BLOCK NOVA MUSCLE CAR  simply a smart move to color coat the primer the same color you will be painting unless using candy’s


When the weather permits we will let the cars bake in the sun If not we put in the downdraft booth and cook them at 165 degrees.

I hope you enjoyed this post on this Restoration Project


This was a special car the Shop hit 500 cars restored when this one was completed. If you have a project you would like to discuss we book by appointment and I will be glad to discuss the procedures for your project!

I’m sitting here in my office, looking at the locked door, and I see very few cars on the street. There was no hurricane warning, and last I heard, there’s no oil crisis. But this Corona virus thing is really pissing me off. I’m tired of this doom and gloom stuff. My...
