Roadster Shop's Amazing Innovator 1967

We've said it once and we'll say it again (…and again and again): not all tuning jobs are made equal. There are tuners that hastily upgrade certain parts of cars and there are artsy customizers like Roadster Shop that design unique vehicles like no other.
Roadster Shop, which is based in Mundelein, Illinois, specializes on classic American cars - and we're not talking about a simple paint job or even a full blown restoration, but a complete transformation of the entire vehicle.
One of their latest and more publicized designs is a 1967 Chevrolet Nova coupe named Innovator. As you can see from the comprehensive photo gallery, every single component and panel of the original Nova was either replaced or upgraded to create a high-tech street racer.
At the heart of the build beats a GM-sourced 454 cubic-inch LSX V8 pushing out some 700-horsepower to the rear wheels through a Tremec T56 six-speed manual gearbox.
We'll agree that it may not be to everyone's taste as the futuristic and classic aspects of the car don't always blend perfectly –at least on the outside, because the interior is spot on in our books- but no one can’t deny the work that went into transforming a plain Jane 1967 Chevrolet Nova coupe into something that's bound to draw attention wherever it goes.
