Factory-correct colors, huge investments in restoration/preservation, and a fire-breathing big block under the hood – that's why we love this 1971 Chevrolet Nova SS tribute, and you will, too.
Speak softly but carry a big stick. That's the impression the factory-correct Sandalwood paint immediately gives. The original application of this sedate color will fool some into believing this is just a nicely presented Nova with its mirror-like wide chrome bumpers and compete trim. But then there are those who will recognize the blacked-out SS grille, hood vents, and deeply tinted windows. And that's the true key to this classic. It's a sleeper for those not paying attention, but it rewards those who look a little deeper.
That feeling continues on the interior. The deep dark back of the seats, carpeting, dash, and door panels are the result of investing in correct replacements that were not up to standard...but all you see is a the result: a fantastic bucket seat car! Plus, we really know your eyes immediately gravitated to the desirable center console with auxiliary gauges. You'll slip behind the new sports steering wheel and look out at the cool ultra-wide speedometer. But then you also notice the correct tach to the left just as Chevy did it in the '70s. And just above the original AM radio are the controls for the ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a. See what we mean about all of the cool/quiet upgrades.
But your favorite investment in this Nova will be apparent the moment you pop the hood. This is the kind of engine bay you'll love showing off at the car shows because it takes sunglasses to look at the big V8. Valve covers, hoses, the intake, the pulleys, and so much more have been polished to a mirror-like shine. But beneath all this flash is some serious substance. The 396 cubic-inch big block crate motor has been enhanced with features like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and Hedman headers. But more than just pure power, it's backed up by reliable components like an aluminum radiator and dual electric fans – that means this A/C car can stay cool even in traffic! While you'll love the growl of the dual exhaust, this beast is quite tame for the road. Features like power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and modern rubber on those iconic Rally wheels give you superior control.
Complete with the original warranty card and owner's manual, this Nova looks factory on the outside, subtly upgraded on the inside, and has a big performance V8 heart... In other words, you're perfect classic is waiting for you. Call today!!!
