Is it the slick custom paint, hatchback body, or the performance-built V8 that makes you want this 1973 Chevrolet Nova? We bet it's all of those features available at such an affordable price that will have you racing down here to take home this classic.
Yes, the paint is truly as amazing as it looks in the pictures. The dark blue has a super shiny metallic element that helps it compete with the luster that comes from the silver. In the sunlight this is an unbeatable color combo, which is going to have you taking this classic out at every opportunity. Plus, the two-tone separates with a cool light blue pinstripe across a line that highlights some of the Nova's best design features. In fact, the color scheme tends to favor the rear where this is one of the rarer hatchback models. There are also plenty of sporty and aggressive elements on this coupe, including the cowl hood, all the Super Sport badging, and 16-inch chrome wheels. But beyond all the custom work are the fundamentals of a classic with good body panels that line up nicely, and doors that shut with authority.
High back bucket seats and a center console full of auxiliary gauges are exactly the kind of things you'll love to see greeting you every time you hop inside. Plus, the dual spoke steering wheel and extra wide speedometer are great factory pieces to have, too. Everything is clean, and in a deep dark black, so you can really appreciate this Nova as a muscle machine. Plus, there really is a nice practical end to this car with the hatchback design. We doubt you're going to use the classic to help move friends, but the versatile setup does make it easier if you decide to bring some trinkets back any vintage event.
Under the hood is Chevy's trusty 350 small-block V8 with plenty of new hoses and wires to let you know there's a lot of business going on in there. But once you dig a little deeper, you see all the components that can really get you excited. This includes performance items like Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, aluminum valve covers, World S/R Torquer cast iron heads, Comp Cams cam (.464 lift intake/.470 lift), and long-tube headers. That last one not only adds power, but it also adds to the sweet rumble of the H-pipe dual exhaust system. So, it doesn't take much imagination to understand that this Nova has a serious bark and the bite to back it up. Making sure all this power reliably gets to the ground is a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission that feeds the 10-bold rear end. On the road everything is well in control thanks to power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Toyo performance tires.
This is a true custom classic, and it comes with all the right paperwork, too. It includes original pieces like the owner's manual, warranty card, and window sticker. But there's also the items documenting its transformation such as restoration photos, maintenance records, and build receipts (like the one that shows $4K invested in the paintwork alone.) It's a powerful and custom Nova that's available for an exceptionally affordable price. So yes, you need to hurry it you want to take it home. Call now!!
