“I have only had it about 18 months,” Peterson told us. “I bought it from a gentleman in Utica, NY. I’m in Phoenix. Its primary use is just a street car my wife and I enjoy cruising in on the weekends.”
From the looks of it, you’d assume the Nova is a track car, and Peterson plans to also use it for that soon.
“Hopefully this next winter we will have a trailer and will be able to make it to some track days,” he said.
That should be exciting. According to Peterson, the Nova makes about 800 horsepower. It’s powered by a 508 cubic-inch big block and 8-71 blower. Other parts include, “D cup forged pistons, forged H beam rods, aluminum Chevy heads, TH350 trans, reverse shift, trans brake and line lock. GM 12-bolt rear end, Moser spool,” Peterson wrote.
Until he can get it on the track, Peterson will continue driving the Nova on the street. It has “3:55 gears to make it a little easier to drive on the street,” he wrote. “Passes everything but a gas station, LOL.”
