1977 CHEVROLET NOVA

Orignially built as a Pontiac Ventura by Dale Earnhardt’s father-in-law Robert Gee, the Ventura became a Nova after Dale Sr. discovered that the Chevy Nova drafted better.

With his familiar Wrangler Jeans colours, Dale won multiple events at Caraway, Daytona, Rockingham and Charlotte with this vehicle as a Ventura in 1982 and 1983.

United Autosports restored this Chevrolet Nova racing car, driven by Dale Earnhart.
