Does this classic ever have it going on! Dressed in a magnetic exterior color you can't help but stare at and wielding loads of power via an enhanced engine outfitted with a slew of quality components, this 1966 Chevrolet Nova is a great looking, high impact take on Chevy's revered vintage muscle car.
The exterior is draped in a shade of fiery red that's a perfect match for the car's extroverted demeanor and is in stellar condition throughout to maximize curb appeal - the shine on this Chevy is absolutely electric. Minimal badging allows the paint to take center stage, and the full complement of chrome on display is in outstanding condition and really pops against such a vibrant backdrop. Often times, sheer flash can hide any imperfections in finishing details, but there are no such concerns in this case - the overall appearance here is impressive and a lap around the car will reveal a uniformly precise exterior alignment, with body panels that blend together nicely. The added steel cowl hood merges perfectly with the front fenders, teaming with a slightly lowered front end and aftermarket wheels to confer just the right level of customized distinction, and the gaps surrounding the doors, hood and deck lid are tight and even.
Nearly everything inside the doors is about as clean as it gets. The array of black vinyl surfaces inside, including the front and rear bench seats and the matching door panels to each side, appear literally new and look great contrasted against the smooth painted red steel they're surrounded by. As is the case with the exterior, the level of detail that went into finishing the interior really shows and the tasteful blending of aftermarket components with a largely stock sensibility is a winning combination. Up front, a billet Chevy-branded steering wheel takes the place of the original, sharing space on the column with an added tach. The factory instrumentation inside the cluster is fully functional, joined by a trio of Auto gage displays just below to monitor oil pressure, voltage and operating temperature and a clean dash pad spans the width of the cabin. The trunk area is in good order as well, with solid inner fenders in view, an expanse of carpet lining the floor and a fresh rubber seal below the deck lid to keep the elements from intruding.
Raise the hood and you'll see one seriously tidy compartment, with a 383 cubic inch V8 at its center that's ready, willing and able to deliver on the promise of power suggested by this Chevy's flashy appearance. Armed with a pair of aluminum aftermarket heads and an aluminum intake manifold that's topped by an oblong chrome air cleaner, the engine is good for a full 425 horses at the crankshaft and the dyno sheet results are on hand to prove its abilities. A sizable aluminum radiator pairs with an electric fan up front to keep operating temperatures within optimum range and the featured 4-speed manual transmission provides an exhilarating, hands-on driving experience. This is an exceedingly fresh drivetrain, as both the engine and transmission have logged fewer than 500 miles and are just emerging from their “break-in” stage. An MSD ignition ensures maximum available spark, while an added stabilizer bar sends power to the pavement with maximum efficiency. A glance below reveals an undercarriage that's as sturdy and well-prepped as can be. Power brakes that position discs up front bring the set of razor-sharp aftermarket wheels to prompt, fade resistant stops.
The winning combination of stunning exterior, fresh interior and abundant power makes this 1966 Chevrolet Nova an absolute standout. Call today!
