The Chevy II and Nova finally got a handsome redesign in 1966.... �€" Hagerty The Hagerty people went on to summarize the new-look '66 Nova: A full-length body line divided the side, the front fenders were now hooded over single headlights, a simple horizontal-barred anodized aluminum grille divided the headlights, and the taillights were now set vertically in crisply squared-off rear fenders. Very popular at the time, these appealing details in the re-design helped ensure the '66 Chevy Nova would remain a favorite with the bowtie crowd for decades to come. This car is proof. Offered here is a 1966 Chevy Nova, fully and professionally customized with a host of cosmetic and mechanical upgrades throughout, all achieved without diminishing the model's inherent classic appeal. The stunning Impulse-Blue-over-blue-and-white Nova has traveled just 507 miles since all the work was completed. Attention to detail, the use of premium parts-suppliers, and a perfectly matched powertrain all came together in this satisfying build. This is clearly a one-of-one Nova in show-ready condition. The almost iridescent Impulse Blue exterior paint was applied perfectly; the shine is evenly glossy and completely free of imperfections. Body-panel alignment is similarly outstanding, and all panels are free of even the slightest imperfection. The smooth lines of the hardtop, the sloping roof, and smooth flanks of the car-all part of the Nova's original appeal-remain and were never more attractive than in this beautiful shade of blue. The addition of a cowl-induction hood (with restrained white striping) provides a clue to the power beneath. (The LSX fender badges, side-exit exhaust, and the elevated rear stance tell a good deal more of that story.) Homage to the Chevrolet design is evident in the lack of alteration to the front and rear bumpers, headlight trim, trunk-lid trim (with Chevy II identification), SS and Super Sport (script) badging, window trim, and exterior (Chevrolet-branded) drivers-side mirror. The front blackout grille is a simplification that adds to the overall look. Every chrome-finished surface is free of wear, abrasion, or patina. Period-correct, 5-spoke chrome, 17-inch wheels provide a glimpse of the Willwood® calipers and ventilated brake rotors (drilled in front). Blackwall premium performance tires are mounted. The Nova's interior is a joyful statement in blue and white. The combination of those two colors with sweeping, curved-design inserts on the seat upholstery and elsewhere is as beguiling as it is beautifully rendered. The center console travels the full length of the interior incorporating (front to back): audio controls, the shifter for the Tremec® TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission, twin cupholders, storage compartment, and beautifully rendered rear speaker grille. The illuminated, x-design, blue-on-white headliner is a pure delight. Door trim brings together body-color paint and white leather inserts in a design complementary to the upholstery. Matching blue carpet covering the cabin floors has been expertly installed. A bowtie-branded, chrome steering wheel-echoing the exterior wheel design-frames a substantially re-imagined dashboard, including a complete array of Cobalt® instruments on brushed-metal trim, Alpine® audio head unit, a
