Description:

1962 Chevrolet Nova

PLEASE read full ad description prior to bidding. This is an unfinished project as shown in photos. If you don't see it in the photos, it is NOT included. Sold with bill of sale only, that is all required in GA for a car this old.

I have personally owned the car for 15 years and it has been an ongoing part-time build for last several years. I just decided to move it on to focus on other projects.

Everything NEW. I added up over $19,000 just in purchases and I am sure I am forgetting some. Literally 1000+ man-hours in design and build with many custom show-quality touches. Do the math. My reserve price is far less than half what it would cost to duplicate this car.

All design and fabrication work completed by a mechanical engineer and certified TIG welder with over 25 years' experience. I have over 200 build photos that I can give to the buyer.
