For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Nova in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Rare Nova convertible has had a ground up custom pro-touring/show car build. Many mechanical upgrades make it a pleasure to drive. I sold this car 6 years ago to a couple that pampered it. She even hand made seat covers to protect the seats. They won over 40 trophies!

EXTERIOR: Slick! Exceptionally clean body. It's straight with no issues. The panels fit square and flush. Doors click shut. Has a metal cowl hood. Paint is a polished gloss red. Hand pinstripe was tastefully added. Jambs are slick. New chrome and trim. Even the window frames are rechromed. All new smoked glass including windshield. Taillights are LED. The 15 inch aluminum wheels were the perfect choice. Has Goodyear tires. The tan power top adds class, it's a rich German cloth.

INTERIOR: Very classy, full custom interior. Rich colors on the upholstery. Custom bucket seats are both full power. Has a real nice console with cup holders. The dash is beautiful. The metal is painted red as slick as the outside. Highly polished aluminum instrument bezel has white face gauges. Modern a/c controls and nice oval aluminum vents. Tilt steering column is chrome with a custom wheel. Wiper and headlight controls are hidden under the dash. Custom 1 piece carpet fits real nice. Has Dynamat under it. Has custom billet pedals. Everything is new- mirrors, handles, armrests etc. Has retractable seatbelts. JVC stereo with aux plug. Speakers are molded into the kick panels.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Wow! That's what people say when you open the hood. Polished parts and gloss paint fills the compartment. Completely reconstructed inner fenders, tubular support bars. It's all painted gloss red. Claimed to be a 350 crate motor. Upgraded with aluminum intake, Edelbrock carb with electric choke, Accel electronic ignition and coated headers. New power brake system, new power steering. Vintage Air heat and a/c system. The hoses are hidden behind the inner fender. Has aluminum pulleys. Runs cool thanks to an aluminum radiator with electric fan and a polished overflow. It is show quality.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been boxed and upholstered to match the interior. The battery was relocated to the trunk behind a panel. Bottom of trunk lid and jamb are slick, new weatherstrip. A car cover and seat covers are included.

UNDERSIDE: It has had substantial upgrades. This unibody design was given a frame with 4 welded in frame rails. This makes it strong and handle better. Up front a complete TCI steering and suspension unit was installed. Features include tubular control arms, rack & pinion steering, sway bar and disc brakes. Bottom of the motor is clean. Trans was upgraded from a 2 speed auto to a 700R-4 overdrive auto for highway cruising. In back it has 10 bolt rear, air shocks and replaced fuel tank. E-brake cables are hooked up. A dual Flowmaster exhaust system sounds great.

Only 5,916 miles since the ground up custom build. I know quality and this car has it. Tastefully done, functions fantastic. Nothing to do but enjoy!
