1966 Chevrolet Nova SS

Description:

Calling all collectors! This is a highly desirable and authentic Nova SS with the correct 327 V8 engine still in place. A Muncie M-22 rock crusher 4 speed manual transmission will keep your heart and the RPMs revving throughout your drive. To sweeten the pot even more it has A/C. It is the recipient of a meticulous and beautiful ground up restoration that screams quality and still boasts its original Marina blue color increasing desirability. What a sparse opportunity to own an iconic piece of automotive history!

EXTERIOR: This car is a real head turner! The factory correct Marina blue paint has been enhanced with tastefully executed metallic flake that really helps accentuate the body lines. It was expertly laid out with great attention to detail then polished to a very smooth and highly reflective finish. You can literally read a phone book in its shine. All the panels have been painstakingly aligned resulting in very consistent gaps that are spot on. The doors easily closed just like a new car. Looking down the side of the body it is 100% laser straight without a ripple in sight. The front and rear bumpers have been rechromed. The remaining grill, bezels, and trim all look to be original but in fantastic condition. All the glass is nice and clear with just a few minor scratches. It is equipped with reproduction chrome rally rims that are wrapped in BF Goodrich tires that are a little beefier in the rear.

INTERIOR: This interior is in amazing shape and pretty much factory correct. The inside of the door jamb is painted slick just like the exterior. The door panel itself was replaced and the builder retained its original handles that look fantastic. The car has been upgraded with a Church Boys tilt steering column and a very nice aftermarket steering wheel. The dash pad has been replaced and the remainder of the dash is painted body color. The gauges, gauge bezel, and knobs all appear to be original but in great shape. It has been upgraded with a vintage looking stereo and a Vintage Air climate control unit. Additionally, a Stewart Warner triple gauge was added to the lower portion of the dash. That leads down to a refinished center console with SS badging that houses a Hurst 4 speed manual shifter. The beautiful blue front bucket seats have been reupholstered and are equipped with seatbelts. The rear seat and panels also have been refinished and look amazing. The rearview mirror, sun visors, headliner, and carpeting all have been replaced and have a fresh look to them. The dome light is even working, and the rear shelf has an aftermarket speaker added.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood we have a beautifully dressed and factory correct 327 cubic inch V8 engine producing approximately 300 horsepower. It is equipped with many aftermarket upgrades including a Holley carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, AFR aluminum heads, dome top pistons, roller rockers, Pertronix distributor, and long tube headers. All the hoses and wires look fresh and are routed appropriately. It's also equipped with a modern A/C compressor, power steering, and replaced master cylinder. It is cooled via an aftermarket aluminum radiator and six blade clutch fan. A ribbed and polished air cleaner looks great alongside matching ribbed aluminum valve covers. The underside of the hood has neatly been painted just like the body and is complete with insulation. The fender wells and firewall are both nicely painted with satin black paint. The original cowl tag is in place and even the squirters are hooked up. This is a proper engine compartment by all standards!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The underside of the trunk lid and jamb are painted slick just like the car. The weather stripping was replaced. The trunk pan metal is totally solid and may be painted with the factory original spatter finish paint (an original looking sticker is in place on the passenger side inner quarter panel). A full-size spare tire with cover and rubber mat are included.

UNDERSIDE: This bottom side is looking sharp and includes many performance upgrades! The steering system has been upgraded with a Church Boys kit that includes a rack and pinion, a bigger fatter front sway bar, and steering column. The kid also includes suspension components like tubular lower control arms and tie rod ends also for a much-improved driving experience. The real leaf springs look fresh, and the shocks have been replaced. It has disc brakes up front and drums in the rear with fresh lines throughout. Long tube headers flow into a fresh-looking exhaust system with crossover pipe and dual Flowmaster mufflers then exits under the rear bumper through polished tips. The gas tank looks like it was replaced and has fresh lines as well. Looking up at the correct 327 cubic inch engine it looks fresh with neatly applied Chevy orange paint and a fend aluminum oil pan. The desirable Muncie M-22 rock crusher 4 speed manual transmission looks fresh and clean as well with no visible leaks. That transfers power back to the 10 bolt rear end that is equipped with a Trick Flow aluminum girdled cover. The floors are looking solid and rust free with neatly applied satin black paint.

SERVICE: Our team of professional mechanics has completed a thorough inspection of this car and wired then adjusted the electric choke, installed and wired a backup switch, and shortened the bracket bolts. This car is very dialed in and ready to cruise!

CONCLUSION: This car is a stunner anyway you look at it! Being an original Super Sport car with the correct engine really enhances its rarity. Add in the Muncie M-22 4 speed manual transmission, air conditioning, and quality body work then you really got something special. Your search for the right 2nd generation Nova is now over, we got the right one sitting right here!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
