PRO TOURING, TOP NOTCH BUILD, 468 BIG BLOCK, 4SPD, 12 BOLT, MODDED SUSPENSION!
Having a fast classic often means giving up some vintage appearance to make way for serious power. This 1965 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova doesn't have that problem. It's a full body off restoration car that spared no expense. That means it has a deep and bold red that grabs all the attention at the cruise-in, but when the time is right, this coupe also has the power to prove it's the king of the streets.
Brandywine Kandy Metallic – that's the name of the paint that's grabbing your attention. It's obviously not a factory color, and instead the product of modern paint applied with enough clearcoat to make it look dripping wet. No blemished or ill-fitting panels could hide from this special paintwork. It consumes all the light around and radiates it back out in a mirror shine. So while it looks exceptional in pictures, it's utterly amazing in person. With paint this spectacular, nothing but the best brightwork will do. Every piece of chrome appears in pristine condition, from the wide stock bumpers to the trim around the new glass. It's all capped off with shiny 17-inch Smoothie five-spoke wheels from the late hot rod guru Boyd Coddington.
The interior is fresh, premium, and is accented by the same candy-coated red paint. The black vinyl buckets do the perfect job of being exceptionally comfortable, but the seatbacks don't rise above the doorline. This is particularly important because people can see all the way through the side view on this pillarless hardtop, which is always the coolest kind of profile. Beyond the grippy stylized steering wheel, there is a Dakota Digital gauge package to make sure all the necessary info from the motor can be monitored. The manual transmission shifter is in the perfect position for powering through the gears, as well as a comfortable place to rest your arm when you're cruising on a Saturday night. While there are plenty of modern touches, you still get that great classic feel with items like the SS center console and the original AM radio. Besides the cool appearance, we know the radio wasn't upgraded simply because no better sound than this Nova's hypnotic roar coming out of the tailpipes.
Open the hood and just wait for the awards to come pouring in. The big block V8 has been punched out to a huge 468 cubic-inches. But this monster motor is really a brute in a tuxedo. The engine bay dressed with more of that amazing exterior red and the engine is covered in only red and chrome. But beyond the appearance this one really knows how to run. The V8 was professionally rebuilt with components like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock performance intake, long tube headers, and Flowmaster dual exhaust. This rumbling intimidation machine produces around 500 horsepower. Making sure all the power can reliably get to the road is a Muncie HD four-speed manual transmission and a stout 12-bolt rear end that's running a 3.73 ratio for power take-offs. But that's far from the whole story on this one. Make sure you look at the undercarriage photos. Not only can you really tell the quality of the restoration by the paintwork on the frame and underbody, but also you'll see the reinforced A-arm independent front suspension and four-link rear end with coilovers. If that wasn't enough to make you want to go out cruising, this very special Nova also has four-wheel disc brakes and grippy Kumho tires at every corner.
This is the Nova that goes to the front of the line at car shows and doesn't get left behind at the traffic light. It was a long and costly labor to get all these features together, but now you can get all this beauty for far less than it would cost you to have it built.
