Take a moment to let some of the highlights of this 1972 Chevrolet
Nova really sink in... The 400ci V8, four-speed manual, elegant
color combination, and so much more come together in this cool
classic that has everything you want for quite a nice price.
The color on this coupe gives a terrific first impression. The shining Cortez Silver looks terrific in the sunlight, and the well-coordinated black SS stripes are a reflection of this Nova's more athletic attitude. You can see it in other elements, too, like the SS hood. But let's face it, these third-gen Novas already looked pretty legit right from the factory. With the wide horizontal grille, gleaming chrome bumpers, sleek profile, and correct Chevy Rally wheels, you're looking at a memorable classic. But there's even more good stuff under the surface, and we'll get to that in a moment.
We love it when the exterior accent color is a preview of the interior color, especially with a muscle car-like black. Comfortable high-back bucket seat kick off an exceptionally fresh interior, and we love the thoughtful touches like the center console with cup holders. There's an AM/FM stereo with auxiliary input to keep everyone entertained with the most modern tunes. But as great as these features are for everyone, the best ones are reserved just for the driver. You have the original set of gauges, including a full AutoMeter auxiliary cluster. Your left hand gets a grippy Grant GT chrome and wood sports steering wheel, and your right one will be instantly attracted to the Hurst shifter. All of these are clear indications there's something special under the hood.
One look at the engine bay, and you know this is one wicked motor. This 400 cubic-inch V8 is the largest of the small blocks, and it shines brightly with the Chevrolet performance valve covers, air topper, fan shroud, and much more. But possibly more importantly, it has been upgraded with features like a bored .60 over kit, performance camshaft, and a Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor. Plus, long tube headers add even more power as they also contribute to the rumble of the X-pipe dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this sound and all the fury of the enhanced V8 thanks to the Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. Add in power steering front disc brakes, and Moog front suspension components, and you've got a powerful classic that's easy to drive anywhere.
Complete with build receipts, few classic combine the looks, comfort, and performance of this Nova into one turn-key package. So don't miss your opportunity, call today!
