For Sale: 1976 Chevrolet Nova in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

It's not just that this 1976 Chevy Nova Concours has its numbers-matching V8, exceptional preservation, and excellent documentation. It's that this true classic has also been given solid investment to keep it a strong and attractive cruiser. Best of all, you can get all of these desirable features for an exceptionally affordable price.

When was the last time you saw a fourth-gen Nova? So this one is not only a time capsule, but it's also likely the only one showing up to cars & coffee. And this is the kind of car that deserves to be both showcased and driven. For example, the factory-correct Cream paint was given a good respray and a recent detail to give it a nice shine. But the overall presentation will not make you nervous about hitting the road. In fact, once you look at the investments, you'll see this one classic was made to be a better driver. It has an upscale cruiser appearance with a premium half-vinyl roof and bright trim bordering it. The big chrome bumpers, bright headlight bezels, special badging, and optional color-matched Rally wheels are all part of a premium and preserved presentation. And we particularly like the addition of the red pinstripe. It looks bold against the earth-tone paint, and it coordinates nicely with a new set of redline tires. It all makes for the kind of impression of a car with good care. That's because the low odometer is suspected of representing the full mileage, and that would mean averaging less than 800 miles annually.

The tan vinyl interior appears to be highly original, and the level of quality and preservation is another reason for suspecting the low mileage. Good carpeting, color-keyed floor mats, smooth wood-like trim, and textured door panels are all part of this detailed premium style. The front bench has a supple feel, and there's even a fold-down armrest for more individual-style comfort. In fact, this really feels centered around you with a tilt steering column and the essential features within easy reach. There are some well-integrated updates to keep this a good cruiser, like a new headliner with working dome light, and there are provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And the overall impression is certainly about a true vintage machine. That's why the factory Delco AM radio with 8-track is there for display in this time capsule.

Under the hood is a bright orange 305 cubic inch V8, and it not only has the look of originality, but it's also the confirmed numbers-matching block. It's exceptionally stock and very nicely detailed, right down to the AC decal on the air cleaner. Plus, we were told there have been recent investments like newer belts, an updated exhaust with Flowmaster muffler, and the carb was cleaned/serviced. So the way this V8 fires up and runs reaffirms a life of care so far. The TH350 three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and it connects to a rear end with good cruising highway gears. There are also new front ball joints and front bushings for a more confident ride. Add in power steering, power brakes, and front discs, and you can see how this Chevy is a solid classic cruiser.

The sale comes complete with exceptional documentation, including the original window sticker, bill of sale, and owner's manual. This is your rare opportunity at an affordable classic that has both prestige and distinction. Call today!!!
