Larger Pic - Driver Side

This is Randy Borelly's 1967 Chevy II. He runs 10.40's at 129 mph on 10.5" street tires and always drives it to and from the track. Unfortunately he can't make full passes due to the lack of a roll bar, harnesses, etc. He says that would ruin the sleeper image and he loves the stealth mode. The motor is a 10.4:1 compression 383 with Manley flat tops, Callies crank, Crower 6" rods and a Comp Cams hydraulic roller (.580/.582 lift, 246/254 dur. @ .050). The heads are fully ported AFR units, topped with a Victor Jr. and Holley 750 DP. Ignition is all MSD and exhaust is handled with custom 1 3/4" headers and 2 1/2" Flowmaster equipped dual exhaust. There’s a 175-hp NOS cheater plate installed. The transmission is a beefed 350, with an extra capacity aluminum pan, heavy duty intermediate sprag, and large external cooler. It’s a standard shift pattern, equipped with a Hurst Quarter Stick. The torque converter is an 8 1/2" unit with a 4300 stall speed. An aluminum drive shaft from Denny’s hooks it to the rear. The rear is a 12-bolt posi with 4.11 gears, Moser axles, and c-clip eliminators. The axle tubes are fully welded on the factory housing. Aluminum radiator, water pump, intake, and heads lighten up the car. Traction is provided by Moroso springs, Competition Engineering shocks and slapper bars. Tire size is limited to 26” X 10.5” (8 1/2" tread) M/T ET Streets.

All runs are in full street trim. This includes timing, pump gas, full exhaust and street tires. Motor best 11.65 ET @ 116 mph with 1.65 60' times. Nitrous best 10.44 ET @ 129 mph with 1.55 60' times. Randy says the braking is horrid, but he hasn't hit anything and cornering is the same as braking.

11/23/00 Update: Randy has since rebuilt the engine and made some minor changes to the combination. The new best ET on the motor alone is 11.27 @ 120.48 mph. He hasn't made a pass on the nitrous yet because he was still dialing in the timing and jetting. He's hoping to crack into the 9's on a 200-hp shot.

07/25/01 Update: Randy just sold it and is now looking for a solid 3rd gen Nova.

Don Evans factory ordered this Bolero Red SS in 1967 as his very first new car and has loved it from the moment it arrived. It was his every day vehicle for 14 years, racking up almost 200,000 miles on the 283, 4-speed by 1981. For some reason he hung on to it after taking it off the road that year, although it languished with rusted front fender panels and in need of an engine rebuild for some time.

In the late 80’s work commenced and in 1993, with most of the job completed and new paint, she was returned to the road as a "Collector Vehicle." She is all original except for the front fenders, left rear quarter panel, and paint. Now in original condition, this Nova SS gets out on sunny weekends and participates in the occasional car show.
