DESCRIPTION

This classic sedan with just a touch of patina is trying to be one of the coolest sleepers around. But when you recognize the sporty stance and big rumble of this 1965 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova, it hints at the fuel-injected LS/Vortec upgrade of this full restomod build.



The first-gen Nova sedan is a terrific place to start a custom build. It's lightweight, it's unassuming, and has a strong pillared body. Plus, we love Novas because Chevrolet didn't skip out on style when designing their compact offering. A billet-like grille, wraparound chrome bumpers, and full-length trim were all part of the standard Nova, and so it could be mistaken for some of its more up-market siblings. This one showcases that nicely, but there's more going on here. The white paint was purposely sanded down to the metal in some areas and then cleared over. So it looks like you have a barn find that has sealed in its legacy. And of course, the drag-style wheels, front chin spoiler, dual exhaust tips, deeply tinted windows, and Nitto Extreme Drag rear tires are all hints at its true nature.



The interior has a similar setup with a stock style with just the right hints that this is a real driver's car. So you have two rows of classic bench seats, factory door panels, loop carpeting, and stock gauges in the dash. It's so vintage you even have the AM radio with a separate FM receiver. But as you slip behind the classic steering wheel, you see it's on a tilt column. And you have a Lokar floor shifter and AutoMeter auxiliary readouts. So this classic sedan is an updated cruiser.



When you look under the hood, the full nature of this Nova is revealed. It's a 5.3-liter Vortec motor. It's said to be rebuilt only about 1k miles ago and includes a mild cam. Plus, there are headers feeding into the dual exhaust. And there are electric cutouts any time you really want to let this V8 unleash its full rumble. And you can see the ultra tidy package was done with care and the right components, including an aluminum radiator, electric fans, and an Optima battery located in the trunk for better weight distribution. The four-speed automatic transmission was installed at about the same time as the motor. Not only does it offer overdrive comfort, but it now also has a 2500-2800 stall converter to keep you in the powerband. It feeds a PCI driveshaft on its way to Positraction 10-bolt rear with Moser axles. Plus, you also have more terrific upgrades like the CPP tubular A-arm front suspension, rack & pinion power steering, slotted & vented front disc brakes, and rear traction bars.



This Nova sedan has a touch of patina and sleeper style that make it look distinct, and it has an awesome fuel-injected heart you get to fully enjoy. It makes for a unique and speedy classic that you just can't resist. Call today!!!
