This 1966 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova is a real-deal code-118 Super Sport. Plus, the V8 power is newer and larger with a triple-deuce on top. And as you look over all the details, you'll see a well upgraded and restored hardtop that's equal parts vintage charm and muscle.

This is what we look for in a classic American coupe. These second-gen cars have crisp lines along the fenders, front, and even defining the hardtop. There's even a full-length crease built right into the profile. It gives the smaller/lightweight Chevy II Nova the look of substance that rivals its larger brothers. It also helps that this gets the details right with good sheet metal, bright chrome bumpers, and a nice shade of red. And the addition of pieces like the cowl hood and 15-inch Cragar SS wheels do a great job of upgrading this Super Sport without taking away from the classic Chevy feel.

Black interiors always look great in bright red cars. Plus, this one has great details with the premium Nova trim in the doors and seatbacks. While these might have been referred to as the compact line in '66, in today's world, that means offering plenty of space for family and friends. This even has provisions for an upgraded stereo and R134a air conditioning (they need servicing) if you want to keep them entertained. But what you'll really love is how this is already a driver-ready package. There are front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Plus, those AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauges with large speedo and tach let you know this SS means business.

One look at the tidy engine bay, and you can instantly see this was built for power. After all, the three bright air grabbers have the unmistakable look of a set of three dual-barrel Demon carbs. Currently, only the middle one is active, but it's a true triple-deuce setup with the linkage to hook up all three coming with the sale. And it's not just the carbs that make this special. The 350 cubic-inch crate V8 was larger than even the stock Super Sport V8. It also has an Edelbrock hi-rise intake, PerTronix Flamethrower distributor, and ceramic-coated headers feeding an H-pipe dual exhaust. You even have the right supporting components, like a large aluminum radiator and the battery mounted in the rear for better weight distribution. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is great for both stout performance and overall cruising. Plus, the upgraded front suspension, power steering, power brakes, front disc, and modern Goodyear tires all come together to deliver a superior experience you can enjoy anytime.

The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and restoration photos. This is the powerful classic SS coupe with all the upgrades you want. So don't let this hardtop slip away, call today!
