1966 Chevrolet Nova

Having a fast classic often means giving up some vintage appearance to make way for serious power. This 1966 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova doesn't have that problem because it looks perfect for cruising, ut when the time is right, his coupe has also got the power to prove it's the king of the streets.The crisp Nova body has always been popular with hot rodders. Chevrolet made these sleepers from the factory and that attitude has served it well right into modern times. Rendered in extremely slick, nd fashionable metallic burnt orange paint, ost folks take one look at the sleek lines and figure that it has to be customized, ut the truth is, his is just the product of a quality restoration. Aside from the cowl induction hood and custom wheels, he rest of the car is original GM styling. Even most of the trim remains intact, ncluding the rocker moldings, rille, nd bright chrome bumpers front and rear. The black interior is so new that the carpet inserts are still in plastic wrap. The vinyl on the doors and bucket seats respect the original design, ut there are also some cool upgrades throughout the rest of this Nova. The center console and glovebox have been polished to a mirror shine. The AM/FM knob-style radio might look vintage but it has an auxiliary jack to plug in modern tunes. The driver gets a grippy three-spoke Chevy sports steering wheel. Beyond that are the original gauges, ut as you can tell from the pictures, hose are far from the only readouts in this Nova. There are auxiliary gauges for power, ater, nd oil as well as a massive column-mounted tachometer, nd they all are clear indicators that there is something special going on under the hood.One turn of the key will convince you that there is some serious power lurking. It's a 385 cubic-inch stroker V8 by Dart... Not Dart as in Mopar, ut as in Dart Special High Performance. These are the people to turn to when you want a huge motor with near bulletproof build quality. But the performance upgrade doesn't end there. This Nova is full of goodies like MSD electronic ignition, art Sportsman heads, nd a Magnum hydraulic flat tappet camshaft from Comp Cams. We don't have the room to list all the performance parts as the list is long, ut give us a call, nd we'll gladly rundown the full details of this monster motor. Besides the serious power, he engine bay has clearly been dressed for show with plenty of chrome on everything, rom the hood hinges to the shock towers. That might impress at the front, ut at the rear, he dual exhaust with performance H-pipe construction rumbles with enough authority to make sure that everyone gives this Nova the respect it deserves. Just in case that was not intimidating enough, his coupe has no trouble getting its muscle to the streets thanks to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission built by TCI with a 3,500 rpm stall converter. Then the power is sent to a stout Ford 9-inch rear end running a 3.36 gear and Positraction. Stopping is even not a problem thanks to front disc brakes with Kumho tires for modern grip.This Nova has show-winning vintage looks on the outside and a snarling beast under the hood. It's the best of all the classic car worlds in one coupe. What more could you ask for...call now!!
