STOUT RUNNING 350CI MOTOR, TH350 TRANS, VINTAGE A/C, BUCKETS W/ CONSOLE, SWEET!

This 1972 Nova offers one of those color combinations that you wouldn't have come up with yourself, but now that you've seen it, it's pretty cool, isn't it? There's also a stout running 327, cold A/C, and the perfect stance to make this the car that will stand out by making you focus on the details.

Code 56 Cream Yellow is this car's original color, and with that in mind, it's no surprise that they chose something a little more sporting during the build. Of course, the paint is two-stage urethane, so it has a depth and shine that 1972 General Motors never could have matched, which is a big part of why this car looks so amazing. The bright Arctic White finish is low-key, but adding the bright red SS stripes really make this car pop. Underneath, there's impeccable panel prep and a lot of hours invested in block sanding it, which also enhances the ultra-clean look. The compact 2-door post coupe is the one you want for street performance, combining the lightest weight with the stiffest body, although there's no evidence this one was ever abused or wrecked. SS badges and a blacked-out tail panel accurately reproduce the SS look, and we love the standard hood with chrome inserts rather than the more mundane cowl induction setup. Someone clearly thought carefully about the details on this one.

The awesome red interior works well, too, especially with all the new components that have been stuffed inside. Like the exterior, they went with the original-style equipment, including buckets and a console, to neatly straddle the line between restoration and resto-mod. New carpets and door panels make it feel almost new in there, and the original wheel is a familiar sight to anyone who has driven a 1970-ish Chevy. And for a value-priced Nova, the builder certainly dressed it up a bit by adding A/C and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo, which sounds great in the well-damped interior. The horseshoe shifter is still the coolest way to manage an automatic transmission and a full set of Auto Meter gauges monitor all the vitals. The trunk is nicely finished and offers plenty of room for your stuff on a road trip or heading to the track.

The original L48 Nova SS wasn't much to write home about, making just 200 horsepower, but the 327 living under the hood now is substantially more muscular. With an Edelbrock intake and Holley carburetor on top, an upgraded cam inside, and a 2.5-inch dual exhaust system with Flowmasters underneath, it definitely sounds and acts like a muscle car. A few chrome dress-up items add some sparkle to the neatly restored engine bay and the splash of red offered by the MSD ignition system works better here than almost anywhere else. The TH350 3-speed automatic snaps through the gears and spins a 10-bolt rear and while you're under there looking around, note that the floors are tidy and the suspension has been lightly lowered giving it the ideal street rake. 17-inch Eagle wheels have been fitted, and with that lowered stance, they look exactly right. Between the upgraded suspension and meaty 245/45/17 performance radials, this car corrects what was one of the Nova's biggest shortcomings: its handling.

Nicely restored, this Nova is ready to rock and provides a slightly different take on an old favorite. Call today!
