With rarity second only to the convertible version, a 1963
Chevrolet Chevy II Nova wagon is the perfect candidate for restomod
customization. With sleek custom exterior, fuel-injected Corvette
power, an A/C interior, upgraded suspension, and beefed-up
overdrive transmission, this one has left its family hauler days in
the rear view mirror.
Turning grocery-getters into go-fast machines is an art. The best
way erase the suburban blues to start with terrific custom paint
theme. Chevy never gave you a two-tone deep blue and gray like this
from the factory, and the metallic element in this model
application makes people take notice. Arguably the Nova's angular
style offers the best-looking wagon of the mid-60s, and it only
gets more aggressive thanks to the upgraded lightweight fiberglass
cowl hood. There has been a nice investment in details like the
newer door mirrors and handles, but what you really love are those
upgraded black wheels. They look really great against the blue
Inside this one like to show off many of its upgrades in subtle
ways. For example, you have two rows of classic bench seats like
you'd expect in a wagon like this. But it's all part of redone
package that feels fresh. There's even Dynamat insulation
underneath the new carpeting. Plus, there are nice features like an
AM/FM/cassette stereo an R134a air conditioning to keep everyone
happy. But while this is a practical machine, right down to the big
rear storage area, it's also a restomod with the driver in mind.
That's why you have a movable armrest center console with cup
holders and a Grant sports steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column.
Beyond that are all the best in gauges, including a Dakota Digital
VHX, controls for the air ride front suspension, and a Holley
Sniper EFI digital panel.
One look under the hood and you know this is quite a special wagon.
Those Corvette valve covers have the unmistakable look of the
5.7-liter LS1 motor out of a C5. But this is far more than just a
motor drop-in. This V8 was rebuilt about 4k miles ago, and it now
includes upgrades like a Holley aluminum intake and programmable
Holley Sniper fuel injection. And you can see the whole package was
done with care and the right components, including upgraded
pulleys, an MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans.
The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt about the
same time as the motor. Not only does it offer overdrive comfort,
but it now also has a stall to give you control over the powerband.
Plus, you also have more terrific upgrades like the rack & pinion
power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the adjustable
front suspension with a C5 Corvette-style setup.
This is the perfect classic. After all, you'll convince everyone
that you bought a versatile family vehicle with plenty of cargo
space. But really it's the Corvette power and well-integrated
upgrades that sold you. Since you're not the only one who would
like to disguise a dream car as a practical classic, you should
hurry and call today!
