1964 Chevy Nova SS
This is a beautiful car with excellent fit and finish.
The exterior of the car is super slick with black paint and plenty of highly polished chrome accents to set it off. The polished American racing wheels have BF Goodrich Radial T/A’s on them. The exterior trim parts including bumpers are all in good shape. All glass is in excellent shape.
The interior features black vinyl and cloth seats. The seats are in good shape and are trimmed with chrome strips to really set off the interior of the car. The carpet is in excellent condition. The dash is very bright with the factory gauge cluster which includes fuel level indication, battery ammeter (does not work), water temperature, oil pressure, clock (does not work) and odometer. The dash is in good shape and has a recently installed sony radio/CD player.
The car is powered by a Chevy 350 small block motor with approximately 28,000 miles on it. The transmission is a turbo 350 with a B&M shifter which was rebuilt the same time as the motor. The motor runs perfect and sounds excellent (see video) with a small cam and other minor engine enhancements. The car maintains its original 10 bolt posi-traction rear end. The vehicle has power steering. The engine compartment is well detailed and neat. The undercarriage of the car is very clean and solid. As can be seen in the video, the odometer currently reads 53,261 miles but the title reads “exceeds mechanical limits”.
Since the car’s purchase in 2008, the car has been lovingly maintained, stored indoors under a cover and additional work has been done including brake work, electrical rewiring and engine maintenance. Only 2,800 put on engine in over 10 years! Please see the maintenance records file for additional information. 1962 Chevy II shop manual and 1964 Supplement included in sale.
