With only 20,327 miles on the odometer, this 1968 Chevrolet Nova Chevy II is in stellar condition both inside and out. It\'s believed original miles too, and the car certainly reflects that as it\'s obviously been treated with respect and used lightly over the years before recently being sent down to the performance shop, where it was thoroughly transformed into a beast of a classic muscle car.
This Chevy wears it\'s original code G Ash Gold color which, after a fresh repaint, certainly has a subdued, almost sinister look to it. No doubt benefitting from being shielded from the elements over the decades, it\'s in very good form - with nice, even pigmentation and a deep shine. A Corvette stinger inspired scoop rises from the center of the hood, surrounded by black painted ornamentation with a shine of its own so bright it nearly radiates. By any measure, this is a well-finished looking classic and it cuts a great appearance - clean chrome trim surrounds the clear glass of the windows, both bumpers sit level and show no distracting dings and the body lines are tight and even on all four sides. The badging on display here is also top notch - the Super Sport emblem sitting in the center of the black grille just below a the distinctive Chevy II badge embedded on the nose of the car provides a great look.
Awesomeness continues beyond the doors, where you\'ll find an interior that gives the impression that this Nova was frozen in time soon after leaving the factory. Even among well-restored classics, its condition is unusually clean - the gold cloth and vinyl covers on the front and rear bench seats look just as they did when this car first put rubber to pavement and the door panels to each side don\'t show any visible discoloration from use. Just in front of the stock Nova steering wheel, the dash area meets the same high standards, with a fresh instrument cluster carrying clear factory gauges that are joined by aftermarket counterparts to monitor oil pressure and water temperature just below the original AM radio and a tach mounted on the steering column. Above, the straight, still-fresh dash pad is another bit of proof that this Nova wasn\'t allowed to languish in the sun. It\'s no surprise then that the trunk area is also in top notch condition, with no signs of any perforations and a full-size spare standing by.
A very fresh, well-built drivetrain combines with some well-chosen add-ons to make this classic Chevy a real kick to drive. There\'s a 396 cubic inch V8 sitting in its well-detailed engine compartment, wearing a nicely badged chrome air cleaner over its 4-barrel Holley carb and a pair of matching chrome valve covers. Both the engine and the 3-speed automatic TH400 transmission sitting just behind it are a mere 50 miles beyond their rebuilds - so they\'re at their best - and the exhaust note emanating from the aftermarket headers leading to a Flowmaster exhaust will surely leave an impression on any nearby motorists - this car sounds like monster. Hotchkis suspension components in both front and back, as well as new upper control arms, shocks, bushings and coil springs, equip this Nova with handling ability and ride quality that are very rare for a classic, while disc brakes at all four corners provide dependable, fade free stops as it takes to the road on its 17 black steel wheels featuring chrome center caps that are wrapped with Falken Azenis tires.
This Nova offers an unusually clean, finished presence that combines with plenty of power to make it a truly rare find. Call today!
