This 1968 Chevrolet Nova SS 396 Tribute has been upgraded with a big block V8 motor, four-on-the-floor, a sleeker style, and much more. So while the style pays tribute to the Super Sport coupes, this one has been given the right investments to outclass those cars in every way.
The gray paint is a modern color you would see on a new BMW or Audi. It sets the whole tone for the car. First, it lets people know that this classic American has received some nice modern investments. And this feels like a well-coordinated look where the gray harmonizes with performance details like the competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. Plus, the color complements the black accents of the dual racing stripes, grille, and rear panel. It makes for a driver-ready classic with an extra thoughtful sense of style. Everything from the chrome bumpers to the cowl hood strikes the right balance of extra intimidation and vintage appeal.
The interior follows some of the European flair set by the exterior color. After all, the diamond-stitch pattern of the seats is usually a bit more Bentley than Chevy. It\'s even on the seats and cup holder center console for a uniform sense of style. Just like the exterior, it looks good, but you can see the fit, finish, and features are more about a fun driver. That means features focused on you, like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, an auxiliary gauge trio, and a Hurst T-handle shifter.
The driver-ready focus is because the engine bay is filled with big block power. This 396 cubic-inch V8 looks great with a mix of style and substance. The tidy setup and smooth black inner walls showcase the bold orange block, shiny air topper, and matching valve covers. The V8 also has nice power upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, Edelbrock aluminum intake, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. You\'ll also spot good supporting features like an Accel HEI coil and an aluminum radiator to help keep everything cool. It makes for a solid cruising package. And the Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the power and rumble of this Nova. Front disc brakes, power steering, and wide modern tires give this a confident feeling on the road.
This is the Nova SS tribute with added style and power. It makes for the distinctive big-block classic you\'ve always wanted... call now!
