Beautifully solid Nova SS Sport Coupe featuring a stout 327ci V8, 4-speed manual transmission, power steering, dash tachometer, front & rear bumper guards, all tinted glass, and more! An outstanding vehicle coming from the previous Texas owner of the last 10 years!
The first generation of the Chevrolet Chevy II was introduced in 1962 as a small, compact platform vehicle to coincide with the Corvair, but better compete with the Ford Falcon for showroom buyers. It would come in three select model series and 5 different body styles. The top of the line would be the Nova 400, and a Nova SS to join the Super Sport class of Chevrolets by 1963! A 283ci V8 was added to the SS engine list by 1964, and later in 1965, this unibody compact Super Sport platform had the choice of a 327ci V8 that would propel this lightweight to instant muscle car status! With horsepower climbing upwards of 350 ponies, the crisply restyled and refined 1966 has become highly revered among collectors today!
Offered here is a 1966 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova SS Sport Coupe finished in Artesian Turquoise over Turquoise Vinyl bucket seat interior! Power comes from a 327ci/275hp V8 upfitted with an Edelbrock performance aluminum intake and Edelbrock 600cfm 4-barrel carburetor, Borg Warner 4-speed manual transmission with 4-speed shifter, and 10-bolt rear axle! The under hood presentation is very sharp with chromed dual snorkel air cleaner, aluminum valve covers, MSD 6A electronic ignition, 8mm super sport plugs wires, and chrome accents everywhere you look! Options include power steering, dash tachometer, Strato-bucket seats with full center console, 15” rally wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich radial redline tires, all Soft-Ray glass, day/night rearview mirror, upgraded AM/FM/Cassette radio, front & rear seat belts, carpeted floor mats, locking gas cap, and front & rear bumper guards!
Underneath this car, it becomes very clear why this car was selected for such an outstanding restoration! It retains all original body panels and floors pans while showcasing one the best preserved chassis’ we have seen in years! From the metal crimp points, factory spot welds, bonded joints, and overall fitment of panels, it remains quite remarkable! To enhance the stability of this remarkable unibody Nova, a set of Global West sub-frame connectors were welded in place to better handle any additional power you wish to throw at it! You will also find an all new Sensa-Trac suspension, completely rebuilt front end with new ball joints, tie rod ends, and all bushing, 2.5” FlowMaster exhaust system, and front sway bar! It is an exceptional example bearing the correct 11837 VIN designation for a Nova SS Sport Coupe with V8 from the factory! It runs and drives wonderfully with excellent power and road manners! Please act quickly, as cars of this caliber rarely last long on this showroom!
