For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Nova in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Chevrolet Nova SS is a fresh and full build that's all about maximizing style and performance. It's a real-deal Super Sport hardtop with a vibrant red style. But what really tells you about the updated speed machine are the air grabbers peeking out. They hint at the upgrades within like the dual-quad V8, five-speed, upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Viper Red is a bright color that makes the right first impression. It's a product of investment in a modern professional paint application. There are only about 2,700 miles since restoration, and the clearcoat luster looks impressive from every angle. It was even given a ceramic coating to make that deep shine stay durable. What also makes the paint look extraordinary is how smoothly it flows over the body, and that means they paid attention to getting the sheet metal straight. Bright chrome bumpers, a clean grille, special rocker trim, and doors that close with confidence are all part of a thoughtful total style. As good as this looks, no one will ever call this a "nice" car. That's just because it looks so mean. Weld Racing wheels, a sporty stance, extra-large rear tires, and air grabbers popping out of the hood give this an intimidating style.

Black interiors always look stylish against red exteriors. You will instantly recognize the difference a well-done total package makes with a deep dark look on the upholstery, headliner, door panels, and dash. Plus, it's a better driver's machine with the upgraded sports steering wheel, billet pedals, and a Dakota Digital Gauge panel featuring a large speedo and tach. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?

The engine bay is built for both show and go. It's attractive with smooth inner walls, tidy components, and plenty of polished components. The VIN tells us this was born a true Super Sport, but since that was a six-cylinder version they decided to give this an awesome V8 upgrade. This is a 350 cubic-inch small block with a bored .10 over kit. It's further fortified and enhanced with Chevy double-hump 462 angle plug heads, Weiand intake, and a dual set of Quick Fuel 600 four-barrel carburetors. And a nice set of Dougs Tri-Y long tube headers let this mighty motor exhale with serious power into the X-pipe dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. It's also supported by the right components like an aluminum radiator, an electric fan, and an MSD distributor. You get full control over the power and its soundtrack with a Tremec five-speed manual transmission upgrade that also includes a Ram clutch and pressure plate with hydraulic throw-out bearing. This feeds into a strong Ford 9-inch rear with 4.11 gears for quick take-offs. As you look underneath, you'll spot a clean setup that shows more upgrades like the newer Moog front end components, Cal Trac rear traction bars, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Complete with build receipts, this is a real-deal Super Sport Nova modified to be a terrific street machine. So don't miss out on this total package. Call today!!!
