This RestoMod Nova was purpose-built for 16-year old Bridget Kavanaven as her first car by Detroit Speed (DSE) and Jet Hot Coatings with a 430hp E-Rod LS3 Engine under the hood backed by a Bowler 4L65E transmission and a pair of coated Jet Hot headers to expel the spent gasses.

This Nova still rocks it’s original sheet metal, paint, and trim. Underneath, it sits atop a full DSE suspension package and 18-inch wheels, which are designed to mimic the original 14-inch steelies the car came with and stops with Baer brakes.

Lucky kid…
