For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Nova in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Tall, flashy, and exceptionally powerful: gassers are a cool unique era in custom classics that command attention simply because they tower over the other cars at the shows...literally. You don't see these often, but when you want to be recognized even in a crowd of standouts, then you need a cool look done from a cool classic like a 1962 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova.

This one has a very cool outlaw style. Black paint has aged into a true matte black, and that makes for the look of a true straight-line brawler. These are all about transferring force to the rear wheels. So it correctly has the high solid front axle installed, and we all love how the world can now get a peek at those headers with the exhaust cutouts. Plus, there's a tall cowl hood drilled with speed holes and a proper wheel/tire setup with skinny tires in front and Mickey Thompson rubber in the rear. But even as a race-ready gasser, this classic Chevy also has flair. There are bright chrome bumpers and half-chrome headlights. And the full pinstriping package is a truly great vintage touch.

The interior is all about speedy business. Like a true racer, anything that was adding unnecessary weight was just eliminated. The only investments are about a better competition machine. That includes the roll bar, large auxiliary readouts, and some custom paint on the dash that reminds you to "hold on." It's also a better driver with features like the Hurst Indy shifter, and that cruising style steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column.

The engine bay has more of the true gasser style. That means taking out the weight of the inner fenders and adding strength through tubular steel. At the heart is a mighty 327 cubic-inch small block V8. This was recently rebuilt for power only about 400 miles ago. It includes a bored .40 over kit and flat top pistons. There's also a Holley four-barrel carburetor w/spacer, an Edelbrock intake, and an awesome set of Hooker Super Competition headers. It's a strong runner with a nice idle that's far better than a pure track car. The Muncie four-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the power and its rumbling soundtrack. And whenever you really want to bring the thunder, there are electric cutouts. It feeds into a strengthened 10-bolt rear with 4.11 gears and reinforced with ladder bars for confident take-offs. There are the right supporting details, like a new radiator as well as the fuel cell and battery mounted in the trunk to put more weight over the rear wheels. And there are four-wheel disc brakes that help you keep it all under control with confidence.

Distinct, powerful, and ferocious, this is the cool gasser with a tough-as-nails attitude. So you know you want to take it home right now.
