Sharp paint and a fresh interior already make this 1968 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova attractive. But the reason why you really want it is because there was a serious investment also in delivering a performance-built 400hp small block crate V8. It also has all the right drivetrain investment to go with it, too, including four-on-the-floor.
This car has the traditional boldness of a powerful Nova, and it's done with modern flair. So the Copperhead orange metallic paint is the perfect way to set the tone for this car. It's even a ceramic coated finish so the hard shine is as fortified as it looks. And these '68 Novas always nostalgic for the Chevelle-inspired semi-fastback roofline, with wide sail panels that create a muscular stance. And you know this one is sporty the moment you spot the upgraded cowl hood, black grille, and full dark window tint. You can also tell there has been a solid investment all over the body. The wide chrome bumpers are mirror-like; the full trim is complete; and they gave Chevy's iconic Rally wheel the full chrome treatment.
Inside there have been plenty more investments for this to be a great place to spend some time. The headliner feels factory-like new; the dash is smooth; the capering is plush; and the seats have that unmistakable feel of a quality investment. There's even the convenience of an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo that makes this the kind of classic that family and friends will want to go for a ride. But a coupe like this is also clearly all about the driver. There's a Hurst shifter for your right hand, and your left one will love the grip of the Grant steering wheel mounted on a tilt steering column (power steering). And the factory gauges are supplemented with an auxiliary readouts trio and a tach - so you know you'll love what's under the hood.
The engine bay received all the right upgrades, too. It has the shine and tidiness of a top-quality build. In fact, you're looking at a 350 cubic-inch crate V8 that has only about 2k miles on since its complete performance construction. It was enhanced and fortified with Promax aluminum heads, Comp Cams flat tappet camshaft, roller rockers, an Edelbrock Performer EPS aluminum intake, and topped with Holley double pump four-barrel carburetor. Ceramic coated headers add even more power while also feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. We're told the full package now makes 405 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. This kind of power needs the right supporting components, and so you have fresh hoses (included steel braided lines), upgraded pulleys, and a Griffin aluminum radiator. You take full control of this enhanced power package and its thunderous soundtrack as a four-speed manual transmission feeds an Eaton 3.55 Positraction rear end. As you look underneath the car, you're also going to spot the best in performance upgrades. This includes subframe connectors, power brakes with discs up front, Bilstein front shocks, Monroe Sensa-Trac rear shocks, and Addco sway bars front & rear.
This is the bold and powerful Nova with all the right upgrades. So don't let something this distinct and complete slip away, call today!
