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.

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.
