It would be highly unusual to find a 1974 Chevrolet Nova SS that has been modified into a dually (a vehicle with dual rear wheels) and a four-wheel drive (4×4) configuration. The Nova SS was a compact car, and it was not designed or built with a dually rear axle or 4×4 capabilities.
This vehicle right here must be the only 1974 Nova SS that is diesel powered, but that’s just the beginning of this story. This vehicle has the running gear of a 3500 Dodge Dually diesel 4×4 including here the dual rear wheels and tires.
To Make a muscle car into a four wheel drive has been an ongoing thing for years now, but not to the extreme that this SS exhibits. This kind of build was completed from the ground up pairing this classic ’74 Nova SS body with a heavy duty Dodge Dually frame and the complete drivetrain.
This vehicle got a complete transformation and turned into a Dodge Truck right down to the wheels and tires that includes six of them. The Cummins powered Chevy Nova appears to be in excellent condition and some muscle car enthusiasts will definitely say gosh what was this guy thinking ??
Above all they did an amazing job in making this very unusual combination work. What they started with for sure isn’t known, but likely it wasn’t feasible to restore the Chevy Nova SS to its original state and some very creative folks came up with this idea.
The Rod Run in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is an annual event that features a variety of classic and custom vehicles. It’s possible that a modified Nova SS like the one you described could be on display at the event, but it would be a very unique and rare vehicle.
Only people who build this unique car know the whole story, enjoy the video from ScottieDTV.
