1972 Chevrolet Nova

This Frame Off Restored Classic is a 1972 Chevy Nova TRUE SS built by Glory Days Auto Restoration in Vancouver, A. The restoration was completed 6-1-15 and has about 500 miles on it since rebuild, o all the quirks of a build are dialed in. It's a full sub-frame off rotisserie restoration. It took 1 year to complete and over 1200 hours. There is over $40K in parts alone. The body was stripped down to bare metal and it had very minimal metal/rust issues. The body was treated with Sherwin Williams Auto Epoxy before bodywork began. The bodywork was completed and primed then blocked 4 times to get the lines perfect. We then applied 3-4 coats of Sherwin Williams Ultra 7000 basecoat and 3 coats of Sherwin Williams 950 Premium Urethane Clear coat. The car was wet-sanded with 1500/2000 grit and polished to a pristine shine. All new chrome, ights/lenses, riginal wiring great condition, ll lights electrical works perfect. No expense was spared on this build as you can see.

I can promise you it drives as nice as it looks. The steering is very tight unlike many classics and the car fires right up and sounds great! Trust me I don’t want to sell this car because it’s my favorite driver, ut I need the money to fund a 1969 Roadrunner build. Feel free to ask any questions. I’ve been building cars and early broncos for the last 20 years. You’re getting a lot of car for the money!! Fun car to drive especially with the built motor and 4 speed!!!
