1973 was a great year to get a Chevrolet Nova. It had a more
distinctive style, and this example has a nice cruiser attitude
that has some updates without losing the vintage feeling. And so
this makes for a proper Chevy V8 classic.
The 1973 cars debuted an updated look with even more square-jawed
front end. So while Novas were always known for delivering
substantial-looking style to the compact car segment, this refresh
turned it up a notch. In fact, this example loves to show off the
well-creased lines with the upgraded paint. The nice metallic
element really pops in the sunlight, but there is the right amount
of earth tone to the orange to make it look right for a 1970s
machine. So it feels thoughtfully upgraded, and that's not the only
place. The headlights are half-chrome pieces, the Nova badging are
decals, and the wheels are fully polished pieces that still keep
the classic Rally style. So they upgraded for a smoother and
brighter style while still looking quite stock and vintage.
The interior is pure classic cruiser cool. The cloth inserts in the
upholstery have a great vintage texture, and those two wide rows of
bench seats will have you looking for the nearest drive-in. Plus,
the smooth dash pad, clean floor, and good headliner make this all
inviting. This loves to keep the full vintage style with working
details like the dome light, gauge lights, and horn. This is even a
factory air conditioning car, but it will need servicing and/or
upgraded to blow cold again. And because this classic also likes to
be a cruiser, the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo provides better driving
Under the hood is a 307 cubic-inch V8. This is an era-correct block
that has a clean and correct style. The small block warms up to be
a hardy driver, and the glasspack-style dual exhaust has a nice
tune. Part of why this feels like a proper cruiser is because of
the right easy driving features like the smooth-shifting
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes,
and BF Goodrich raised white letter tires.
This is the well-priced true classic with just the right touches of
upgraded style. So if you love a cool Nova, call today!
