1966 NOVA: Project MaxStreet

One of the coolest things about musclecars is seeing a pony car with a lot of power by way of a massive V-8. Our Project MaxStreet is a 1966 Nova II with 555 cubic inches of Edelbrock/Musi big-block power. But MaxStreet isn’t just another small car/big engine monstrosity, it’s been treated to the kind of attention that would make any musclecar stand out in just about any crowd.

Before it had a name, the Nova II began life with a bright red paint job, matching sport ralley wheels, and a very tired 350 small-block that was on its last legs. The paint hid a multitude of sins to the body, and the Nova was the epitome of the phrase, “looks can be deceiving.” In other words, we had our work cut out for us.
