Vehicle Description

1973 Chevrolet Nova - 383ci Stroker V8 - 4 Speed Manual Transmission - 4 10 Gears - 7907 Miles Shown - Blue With Black Stripes Over Black And Blue Interior (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1973 Chevrolet Nova on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 120 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: The Sleeper Awakes �€" Period Chevy Nova SS magazine advertisement headline The Nova SS advertising copy hailed: Up and at 'em! ... a throbbing engine note... this one's no imitation... a standard 300-hp V8... special suspension... an extra tough clutch... 7 wide wheels... power disc brakes... Chevy Nova SS... the car that woke up swinging. Clearly, the folks at Chevrolet were celebrating the way folks had been making their more basic Novas into performance sleepers with this new SS that came from the factory ready to perform from day one. Offered here is perhaps the ultimate Awakened Sleeper, a ready-to-race 1973 Chevy Nova SS in custom blue with black stripes over black-and-blue. Showing 7,907 miles currently, the car has been fully drag-race-prepared. This Super Sport's been professionally restored to a very high standard, including a new 383-cubic-inch stroker V8 and a host of race-related parts and component upgrades. This is a Seventies SS, properly prepared and ready for show... and definitely, for go. The professional quality of the metallic medium-blue exterior paint application is evident in the even and complete application (including door sills, door frames, and underside of the hood and trunk), virtually perfect gloss, and deeply reflective color. The black stripes are perfectly applied to the hood, rear deck, and body sides, even extending into the door sills and under the hood. Bumpers are painted in the body color. The hood scoop feeding air to the two 4-barrel carburetors is removable, and the hood is held down with chrome hood pins. In their time, Novas were often campaigned as sleepers: this one is fully awakened. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Badging includes SS emblems on all sides and the intentionally misleading 350 engine-identification badges on the front fenders. Chrome trim surrounding the SS blackout grille and the chrome side mirror and door handles is in well-kept condition with minor patina; window trim is blacked out. Very darkly tinted cabin glass is clear and free of cracks as are lighting lenses. Staggered-size, matching Weld Racing® chrome, dish-style wheels are mounted with Hankook® Optimo H724 blackwall tires in front and Mickey Thompson® drag-racing slicks in back. So much for the sleeper look. Inside, front, racing-bucket seats are upholstered in black leather with exterior-color-matching blue quilted-pattern inserts. Racing belts are mounted. Rear seats have been removed and a full padded roll cage, battery (with voltage meter), and fuel cell have been mounted. Black carpeting covers cabin floors extending to the rear of the vehicle. Black stock door trim includes woodgrain trim. A Grant® GT steering wheel in black and blue frames the horizontal 120-mph speedometer, with an AutoMeter® SportComp tachometer (with adjustable redline) mounted on the left-hand side of the steering column. Additional AutoMeter gauges on brushed-metal panels have been added to the modified dashboard to monitor oil pressure and coolant temperature. A sole Nova emblem faces the front passenger and a driver-advisory sticker is affixed on the otherwise unadorned black dash. The shift lever for the 4-speed manual transmission (linked to the 4:!0 rear end) is located on the console. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to assess
