1970 Nove Ss With 375 Hp 396 — I owned this car for a number of years and regret I let it go. It was painted bright white with original wheels; 60 series on the rear, 70 series on front. Headers, 780 cfm dual-feed double pumper, mid-range cam. Awesome power, sharp looking muscle car. Handling was not too good but this car was all about straight line speed. Amazing torque, An absolute monster. Raced a 1967 Mustang with a 427 side oiler once and didn't lose by much(Mustang had slicks- not fair!). Beat a 1969 GTO with a 421; close race. Loved everything about this car and dearly wish I still had it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 375 hp 396, Turbo 400. Awesome power.

Cons: Hard on gas but who cares?
