This 1972 Chevrolet Nova SS is done in its distinct factory-correct colors, but that's not what draws you to this one. Instead upgrades like the powerful small block, four-on-the-floor, upgraded suspension remind you that a hot Nova is one of the best muscle machines out there.
We love how the exterior takes the factory style and turns it up a notch. For example, the trim tag tells us that the Mojave Gold paint is factory correct. But they made an investment in a quality respray. So now it has a metallic element that loves the sunlight and a smooth shine to show off the well-done sheet metal. A factory K-code car is likely a true SS, and so the Super Sport badging and blackout grille are likely correct for this car. And they turn SS aggression up a notch with an upgraded cowl hood. And because this is a powerful car, it announces it in period-correct ways like the competition-style Torq Thrust wheels and a larger set of dual exhaust tips.
The medium tan interior is part of the factory-correct and distinctive color package for this Chevy. The headliner, door panels, seats, and carpeting all have the look of a fresher investment. It makes for an inviting kind of classic, and there's even an updated AM/FM/cassette stereo for better driving music. There are also nice details like a working dome light and the rare factory-style tach is there for display. And this is absolutely set up to be a driver's machine. You have factory features like the high-back bucket seats and a dual-spoke SS steering wheel. Plus, the center console now has a Hurst shifter and a full set of white-faced auxiliary readouts.
Under the hood, the big air grabber and ribbed black valve covers have the right look for serious small block power. This is the 350 cubic-inch V8. The consignor claims that it has been upgraded to a 383ci stroker motor, and the power it produces reaffirms that feeling. Plus, this has plenty of performance upgrades like aluminum heads, a solid lifter cam, an Edelbrock dual-plane intake, and topped with a Demon four-barrel carburetor. There are even supporting components like an MSD ignition system, electric fuel pump, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep the motor running cool. It fires up with a terrific tune as long tube headers add power and rumble to the dual exhaust. You're in complete control of the motor and its soundtrack thanks to the Muncie four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath, you'll spot the right upgrades like KYB shocks in the front, traction bars in the rear, and subframe connectors. Plus, power steering, power brakes with front discs, and modern tires make for an overall solid driving package.
This is the muscle machine with a slick look, the best features, and serious power. So you know you're going to love this Nova SS. Call today!!!
