Have you ever dreamed of dropping modern V8 power into your old school muscle car? How about dropping a supercharged LS3 into a 1972 Nova? You may have thought about it, but Norm Brown took the bull by the horns and made it happen. This Nova underwent a serious transformation to become the mean 72 muscle machine that you see here. With the help of Hedman Husler LS-swap headers and engine mounts Norm gave his Nova one heck of a heart transplant.“Those headers don’t hit the steering box, and those mounts bolt right up to the Nova sub-frame,” Norm explains. Thanks to the superb fitment of the Hedman parts the swap was painless for Norm and his ride.

The Custom Shop is bringing a two Hedman-equipped vehicles to the 2013 SEMA Show – the SSL727 Camaro and this “Stroker Chevelle.” This 1966 Chevelle gets its name from the stroked 408cid LS3 powerplant under its hood. Fortified with all sorts of aftermarket goodies like a Howards custom camshaft, Manley rotating assembly, Edelbrock high rise intake, twin Holley “Terminator EFI” throttle bodies, and Hedman Hedders, this all-aluminum mill cranks out a whopping 600+hp and 545+ft-lbs of torque. But like every good SEMA car, monster power is only part of the story – these cars have to look as good as they go. Every panel of this Chevelle’s body has been replaced with brand new sheet metal from Goodmark and covered in Pro-Spray paint with custom striping. Riding on Weld Racing Wheels, this A-Body’s lowered stance comes courtesy of MBM tubular control arms and drop spindles with Firestone Air Ride delivering a smooth ride.
The Stroker Chevelle will be on display outside of the SEMA Show in the Car Crazy booth so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to builder John Wargo’s Facebook.
