Reliable. Durable. Practical. Three adjectives that describe a stock version of the rear-drive GM X-body cars. Fast. Clean. Powerful. Three more adjectives that describe this decidedly not stock 1969 Chevrolet Nova Sport Coupe, presented by MotoeXotica Classic Cars.
Assembled in Chevrolet’s Willow Run, Michigan, this car has undergone a nearly complete restoration. Under the hood is a 355 CID V-8 crate motor, featuring a new 600 CFM Edelbrock carburetor with auto choke, an Edelbrock high-rise intake manifold, 2.5″ headers, new aluminum valve covers, new spark plugs and wires, a HEI distributor, new battery on May 28, 2016, fuel pump, fuel filter and aluminum radiator with overflow tank. The engine is mated to a 350 Turbo Hydra Matic three-speed automatic transmission with a B&M shifter and boot.
The current local owner had the car painted Gunmetal Gray Metallic topped by a layer of clearcoat on April 30, 2016. He maintained the car’s factory black vinyl roof. There are scratches on the window trim but the new paint lends the car a classy appearance and adds a pinch of menace. All of the glass panels are intact and clear, including the new windshield with integrated radio antenna. Underhood lies a new windshield washer pump with hoses, nozzles and tank. All of the car’s lights are present and intact with no hazing, including the new halogen headlights. All body panels are straight and the bumpers and engine bay sparkle. Car also sports a new two-inch raised hood with reverse intake and underside insulation. This car has new floor pans, front and rear, and vehicle was recently undercoated.
There are new floor-to-roof and door insulation, door/trunk/cowl seals and trunk mat. The car has new air shocks and rolls on Cordovan tires up front, 195/75R14, and Cooper Radial GTs in the back, 225/70R14. The tires surround five-slot aluminum wheels, American Racing ones in front and which are in decent shape.
Inside, there are many new components – carpet, door panels, arm rests, a 1990s-era, four-spoke Chevrolet steering wheel, door and window cranks, rear deck, rear seat divider, headliner, dash pad, door sills and front and rear seats. There are new in-dash temperature and oil pressure gauges to complement the stock speedometer, odometer and fuel gauge. Instead of the stock AM radio there is a Pioneer AM/FM stereo with CD and six speakers and most of the car’s gauges work as designed.
The Chevrolet Nova was produced in five generations from 1962 through 1979. For 1969, the Chevy II nameplate was retired, leaving the Nova nameplate. The “Chevy II by Chevrolet” trunk lid badge was replaced with “Nova by Chevrolet” and the “Chevy II” badge above the grille was replaced with the bowtie emblem and the ’69 model was promoted under the Nova model name in Chevrolet sales literature. As with other 1969 GM vehicles, locking steering columns were incorporated into the Nova. Simulated air extractor/vents were added below the Nova script, which was relocated to the front fender behind the wheelwell instead of the rear quarter panel. The 350 CID V-8 with four-barrel carburetor that came standard with the SS option was revised with an increase of five to 300 horsepower, while a two-barrel carbureted version of the 350 CID V-8 rated at 255 horsepower was a new option on non-SS models. The SS option price remained $312. A new Turbo-Hydramatic 350 three-speed automatic was made available for non-SS Novas with six-cylinder and V-8 engines, although the older two-speed Powerglide continued to be available on the smaller-engined Novas. There were 251,900 Novas made in 1969.
Competition to this Nova in 1969 included Ford’s Falcon Futura Sports Coupe and Dodge’s Dart two-door hardtop.
Current mileage on the odometer shows 33,938 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
