A black on black 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS tribute with an enhanced
small block and four-on-the-floor - it's everything you want in a
slick and mean street machine.
Keeping a low profile was vital to the Nova's street cred, and the clean straight lines of the design have grown into a handsome understatement. This car is like a black leather jacket. Sleek and dark, it gets its point across without too much boasting needed. Of course, the paint adds a nice hint of aggression with a black color that consumes all the light around and radiates it back out in a mirror shine. The addition of the cowl induction hood, Super Sport badging, and competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels just adds those final touches of intimidation. But the sophisticated side of this coupe comes out in the brightwork with the wide grille, mirror-like bumpers, SS-style rocker panels, and the delicate trim that highlights the hardtop bodylines.
While a black interior make this a desirable all-black car, this one has also been given the right investments to be fresh and comfortable, too. That's why you have comfy cloth inserts on the seats, and there's a retro-style AM/FM cassette stereo that blends nicely in the original mounting on the dash. But what you'll really like inside are all the driver-focused upgrades. There's a wood and chrome sports steering wheel, auxiliary readouts cleanly mounted, and a Hurst shifter. Plus, that large tach mounted on the steering column should clue you in to something special under the hood, even before you turn the key and hear this Nova roar.
There are plenty of polished components in the tidy black engine bay to make sure you can show this off with pride. But as you dig deeper, you discover plenty of substance to go with this style. This is a 350cubic-inch small block that has been enhanced with go-fast goodies like a Holley dual feed four-barrel carburetor, aluminum radiator, and headers. And the wicked sound this makes from the large dual exhaust pipes really lets you know someone built this V8 to be mean. You get full control of it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. And features like front disc brakes, a thick front sway bar, and traction bars in the rear are all there to make sure control is a central theme to this upgraded Nova.
There's nothing like a true classic hardtop with four-on-the-floor and a wicked growl coming out the back. So you know you don't want to miss this black beauty. Call now!
