Nova 1972

Title Status --
Exterior Color Atomic Orange
Interior Color Black


The name of this 1972 Chevrolet Nova SS 454 Tribute hints at the serious big block muscle under the hood... but that's far from its only allure. With its vivid paint, upgraded suspension, and driver-oriented interior, this is a terrific way to fully enjoy the power car experience.

Atomic Orange is a modern color borrowed from a C6 Corvette, so it makes a distinct first impression. The upgraded paint loves sunshine with its modern gloss and clearcoat luster. They made sure the body panels are well aligned and the doors fit well for an impressive overall presentation. And there's the right gleaming brightwork with the big chrome bumpers and trim around the grille. It gives you the right classic car shine without drowning out the polished performance upgrades like the big exhaust tips and Ridler 17-inch wheels. The intimidation is further turned up with the SS grille, blackout rear panel, and power dome cowl hood.

The black interior is quite clean and inviting. There's the right hint of vintage style with details like the wood-like trim in the door panels. And there are good features like provisions for air conditioning (it will need to be fully hooked up and serviced.) But what really stands out is how much this is upgraded to be a better driver's environment. It starts with the front seats upgraded to a modern ProCar high-back bucket with excellent bolstering. There's also a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, a tilt column, a Lokar floor shifter, and a full set of AutoMeter gauges including a large speedo and tach. It's all a clear indication that you're going to like what's under the hood.

The engine bay has a fantastic presentation. The smooth black inner fenders funnel your attention to the polished components in the middle. But while the motor is quite attractive to look at, it's even more fun to run. This is a 454 cubic-inch big block motor. The V8 is built with ProMax aluminum heads, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers feeding into the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. Plus, you'll see the right supporting components, like the serpentine belt system, HEI ignition, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. The front suspension has also been upgraded with CPP tubular A-arms with adjustable coilovers. And this is built to be a sharp all-around driver with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, a Positraction rear end, grippy ZR-rated tires.

This is a stylish, distinct, and powerful classic coupe that makes for an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
