1972 Chevrolet Nova
Up for sale by a private party is a premier example of a Pro Touring Chevrolet Nova with a 496 c.i. big block. Car was completed approximately 3 years ago (2500 miles), but took 7 years to reach its current show condition. The Owner/Builder left no bolt or nut untouched and upgraded the performance level using top quality performance parts.
Some of the unique touches include maintaining a “full interior” using mini-tubs and frame connectors versus an awkward roll cage and eliminating the back seat. Use of a 700R4 automatic transmission for cruising and keeping the RPM’s down.
The 496 Chevy BB was built by Jim Bowan of Glen Rock, PA and dyno tested to develop 575 h.p. at 5600 RPM and 605 ft. lbs. of torque at the flywheel.
The Nova is perfect for cruising to the local drive-ins or any indoor car show. It is multiple award winner.
Please note that some of the pictures, like the engine compartment look like there are scratches on the inner fender wells. These are reflections from the chrome on the engine. Firewall and fender wells are perfect.

I have been an active eBay seller of cars and other items for more than 15 years and maintained a 100% rating during most of that period. Approximately 7 years ago I started an online service assisting owners of Classic, Vintage, and Muscle cars to sell their vehicles without them leaving the garage. These are private individual owners who do not want to deal with the public and all of the endless phone calls, “Tire kickers”, and other nonsense that goes on when trying to sell a car. They just want someone to sell it!!
