350 V8, 4-SPD, R134AC, 17/18 INCH WHEELS, SUPER NICE NOVA, GREAT INVESTMENT!
The Nova is an amazing car that was born into economy intentions, but the small-block Chevy V8 catapulted it into iconic American muscle status. This 1969 Chevrolet Nova coupe is the perfect example of that - a beautiful body with a custom build that makes it irresistible.
This Nova left the Willow Run, Michigan plant over 45 years ago wearing a more sedate hue of white. But once it came time to restore and transform this into a true American muscle machine they went with the ultra wild Hugger Orange. This iconic Chevy color is the perfect way to showcase how smooth the body is on this fastback coupe. In fact, the paint is so bright, it rivals the chrome for its shine. That's a tough thing to do on these Novas with the brightwork on the wide bumpers, lower rocker panels, and window trim. But there's more to this car than just a shine. As a Super Sport build, there are also some nice dark elements to highlight this coupe's shadowy side. You see it in places like the grille's black background and the vents on the cowl induction hood. But the biggest standout contrast has to be the side striping. It's a custom piece that gets attention because it did not come on the factory SS cars but it looks great and makes this Nova one-of-a-kind.
Black vinyl is exactly what you want for a muscle car interior, and this one has made sure it stays deep and dark with the bench seats and door panels looking fresh from a restoration. Just like the exterior, this car has been thoroughly upgraded with convenient features like an Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo that's adaptable to your modern tunes and an air conditioner that has been converted to R134a for easier servicing. But what you really want in a wild Nova are driver features, and this one has it. Your left hand rests on the power steering wheel, and your right one will remain firmly planted on the performance sifter. There's also a set of auxiliary gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, and battery. So now you can keep an eye on what's going on under the hood.
One look at the engine bay, and you know this is one wicked small-block. This 350 cubic-inch V8 has been upgraded with features like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Victor Jr intake, MSD ignition, and Chevy racing valve covers. But possibly more importantly, the engine bay quite neat and tidy. It looks great at the car shows with its new belts and hoses, and quite frankly, it's a sign that the previous caretakers have cherished this car. As expected from a performance build like this, the dual exhaust has an intimidating rumble. But this one can back it up on the streets, too, with features like its four-speed manual transmission and Torqu Thrust wheels (17inch front, 18 rear) that can carry the wider and grippy low profile tires. And when it comes time to stop, you'll be happy to have the front disc brakes.
This Nova is a fantastic runner, offers nice upgrades, and has an unbeatable appearance. We challenge you to find a more alluring muscle car for the money!
