1968-72 CHEVROLET NOVA HURST DUAL DUTY DRAG RACE ROAD SHOCKS 600-9992
Vintage 1968-72 Chevrolet Nova Hurst Dual Duty Drag Shocks by Gabriel. This is a genuine set of Hurst Dual Duty drag shocks that fit the 68-72 X-body Novas featuring mono leaf springs. They were created by Hurst as an early optional road/drag type shock that preceded today's adjustable shocks. The finish is very nice, as are the decals. Since these were acquired through an estate sale, it is presumed that they were stored for quite some time and likely refinished. When collapsed, turning the base by hand provides 3 audible "clicks" that indicate which mode the shocks are in. They can then be installed back on the shock plate and freely turned after extension to line up the upper mount again. NOTE: the decals are not perfect - hence the price has been reduced.
These shocks were used by Super Stock racers (Sox & Martin) back in the late 60's/early 70's as an advantage for providing maximum traction for street/drag racing. They were ideally readjusted for street manners when not required, but wasn't always necessary. Today, they are a nice addition to the vintage drag racer, or a very cool piece for the street/car shows.
Also comes with a printed advertisement for the record.
