For Sale: 1963 Chevrolet Nova in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Beautifully built early Nova with serious firepower. 355 cubic inch small block, aluminum heads, dual quads, built TH350 automatic, power disc brakes, and more! Laser-straight bodywork, stock-style interior. A nasty Nova that's built for combat!Chevy's compact Nova was a lot of things: compact fuel sipper, reliable commuter car, and potent street brawler, all depending on which boxes you checked on the order form. The combination of its compact size and an engine bay built to hold a small block V8 means that it remains one of the most popular choices for guys looking to go fast. This beautifully built 1963 Nova 2-door is a great example of less being more. There's a big dollar investment in the paint and bodywork, which is straighter than most cars in this price class, and the beautiful root beer brown finish that glows in the sunlight. There's a steel cowl induction hood up front, complete with contrasting gold SS stripe, but that's the only notable deviation from stock spec. All the original trim, including the side moldings, was retained and restored to show standards with the rest of the car, adding a bit of jewelry that really looks great. Body gaps are very good and someone spent plenty of time getting it lined up just right-you should hear the doors close!The stock style interior was completely restored at the same time, using reproduction seat covers that duplicate the factory patterns. Correct square-weave carpets were installed along with matching floor mats, and the door panels are right. The dash is stock and painted to match the bodywork, but there are numerous upgrades, including a Sunpro memory tach and shift light on the steering column, a billet steering wheel, a trio of auxiliary gauges under the dash, and a trick B&M shifter on the floor. Note the factory radio block-off plate, which suggests this car is all business, and the billet door hardware, which adds a little sparkle to the otherwise simple interior. Tinted windows help with a bit of attitude and help keep things cooler inside and the trunk is upholstered in the same carpet as the interior, giving it a nicely finished look.All that's nice, but the real reason we love this car is that it puts serious blasting powder under the hood in the form of a built 355 cubic inch small block V8. Most notably, there are dual Edelbrock 4-barrels on top which give it razor-sharp throttle response and easily flow enough to feed the matching Edelbrock aluminum heads underneath. There's a performance cam inside that gives it that performance idle without being fussy in the real world, an HEI distributor lights it up, and the long-tube headers are ceramic-coated so they'll last practically forever. Up front there's a giant aluminum radiator with electric fan, a billet serpentine accessory drive, and a custom fuel system to feed it a steady diet of hi-test. Note that there's a modern dual reservoir master cylinder for the power front disc brakes. The suspension is stock, including the manual steering, but effort is reasonable thanks to the car's modest weight. The floors are extremely clean, there's a sturdy 10-bolt rear end in back, and a cackling dual exhaust system gives it a fantastic soundtrack. Traditional Cragar Super Sport mag wheels give it a '60s performance look and carry staggered 15-inch Mickey Thompson radials.Fast, fun, and finished to a very high standard, this Nova delivers everything you'd want from a hobby car. For those of you who understand that taking weight out is the same as putting horsepower in, this car should be appealing, especially when you realize that they also added plenty of horsepower. There's just no way to not have fun in this awesome Nova.
