This is a 640Hp beast street car, driven by a turbo 400 transmission it rips through the streets if you get on it . It was 7 years in the making until it was finished , this is a true SS as well. This 1966 Nova has full custom interior giving it a newer modern yet a still classic look.

We would like to thank the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight for their unique location used at many of our photo shoots. Be sure to visit this historical museum if you find yourself in the Dallas, Texas area. Texas Classic Cars of Dallas' showroom is located only minutes away. The paint is a mixture of DuPont Chroma base and custom-blend black base with red and copper pearl . This 66 is one incredible car. Featured in Hot Rodding Magazine in June of 2007, it is still in great shape.  The original owner and builder spent 7 years building this dream car. There were so many changes and so much time spent, that the owner nicknamed the car "The Elm Street Nightmare". Some top names in Souther California were involved in the build. Don Caldwell of Caldwell's Performance Hotrods, Andy Mitchell of Outlaw Engines, and chasis man extraordinare, Phil Mandella, just to name a few.

An original edition of the magazine is included. The chrome on this nova is nearly immaculate. Very Clean Custom Fender Well Headers. Custom Nickle Plated Vintage American Racing Torque-Thrust D 15x6 Front ; 15x10 Rear. Fenders, doors and body panels are as straight as can be. These are dual 3-inch factory-style over the axle stainless steel exhaust system, silenced only slightly by Dynomax race mufflers. It's hard to see in our photos, but the wheels are custom nickle plated. There is a slight yellow color to them which is very unique. This 1966 Nova SS has a great stance and stands out anywhere it goes .

The engine bay is very clean and organized , it has a fresh & simple look. Opening the hood this 460ci Big block is surely the center of attention . Clean custom inner fender are flush and painted to match the outside of the car as well as the firewall. The trunk is very clean with a new charcoal grey carpeting and roll cage going through the trunk gives it a very clean look. The roll cage is not in the entry way , it is built to align with seat, making it accessible to get in the front and back. The interior seats and door panels are a custom design , charcoal grey color with a silver insert and burnt orange stripe. The dash has been custom painted as well , it is a very clean look . Turbo 400, manual valvebody transmission , shifts smoothly.
