This 1965 Chevy Nova SS is a complete rotisserie restoration that has been upgraded with modern components from front to rear. From the drivetrain, to the suspension, to the high end interior this Nova SS is built to the max and ready for your enjoyment.
The restoration started with a California car that was stripped to bare metal and built from the ground up. It features a base/clear PPG paint job that has been hand finished and polished to perfection. Most of the trim is new as are the front and rear chrome bumpers.
This Nova SS handles like a dream using a complete TCI suspension configuration. Forget vintage steering geometry issues. The Nova front end features the TCI subframe IFS. This bolt-on frontend features polished springs, 1 anti sway bar, greasable urethane bushings, power rack and pinion steering, and big bore calipers. The rear end is comprised of TCIs 4-link setup with bolt-in subframe connectors, a drive shaft safety loop/crossmember, adjustable pan hard bar, and adjustable link bars. The Nova uses a 4-wheel power disc brake set-up that is incredibly responsive and stops on a dime.
The motor is is Chevy ZZ4 crate engine which makes an advertised 355 HP and 405 lb-ft of torque. The engine features high-flow aluminum heads with 163 cc runners, raised exhaust ports and tight combustion chambers. The block is a 4 bolt main with a forged crank, hydraulic roller cam and aluminum intake, Holley carb and an HEI distributor. This 350 engine rips pretty good and attached to the 700R4 transmission in the Nova, make for a pretty mean pairing for the street. The built Ford 9 rear end has Detroit Trutrac 3.73 gears and gets plenty of traction off the line. The exhaust moves through a set of custom coated headers and a custom exhaust complete with dual Flowmaster mufflers. The engine utilizes a serpentine system which spins a modern AC compressor, GM II PS pump and alternator.
Inside, the Ron Magnus interior is high dollar all the way. The car uses 7-way power Lexus seats split up by a custom console which houses the Lokar shifter. The interior is furnished in genuine leather and suede, and the seats have ostrich inserts in the backs. The carpeting is high dollar pile carpeting with leather trim and the dash has appropriately been covered in more leather. The headliner is a custom leather and suede one-piece creation and is as clean as it gets. The car has Autometer gauges which provide accurate readings and a tilt Flaming River steering column. Additional creature comforts include a Vintage AC system with modern digital controls and custom billet vents. The system is ice cold and uses modern components along with 134A refrigerant for easy charging. The car has power windows all the way around and a flip screen double DIN stereo system.
