Auction Block: Van Halen’s 1970 Chevrolet Nova

Sep 9, 2021

Category: Rides

Last October, the rock world lost one of its all-time greats when Eddie Van Halen passed away after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer. In his wake, the legendary guitarist left behind a multimillion-dollar estate riddled with fast cars, iconic guitars, and other big-ticket items — presumably for division amongst his remaining family members.

And this metallic orange 1970 Chevrolet Nova happens to be one such vehicle. Restomodded by the hotrod experts at California-based Bones Fab, it’s a car that comes chock-full of high-performance parts. Under its carbon fiber hood, for instance, there hides a 454ci LSX V8 mated to a six-speed manual Tremec transmission. Though the listing doesn’t specify the exact output, we expect (at least) a healthy 620 horses. Accordingly, then, the car now rolls on an improved suspension setup, including Ridetech air shocks, tubular control arms, sway bars, and a set of Wilwood disc brakes. Complemented by a full roll cage, some Sparco seats, and a set of KWC wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot tires, the result is a Nova that’s ready to run with the devil. You can place a bid now over on Bring a Trailer, where the auction currently sits at $60,000.

Purchase: $60,000+
