Proper V8 power, solid investments, and hardtop appeal headline this 1963 Chevrolet Nova SS. And the fact that a real-deal Super Sport with the right upgrades is also so value priced makes the full package irresistible.
This hardtop has straight body panels, good panel gaps, doors that shut with confidence, and eye-catching shine from brightwork everywhere from chrome bumpers to grille. So this will immediately check all the right classic car boxes for you. But that's not why you'll .....
really enjoy it. The dark gray metallic paint brings an upgraded tone to this vintage coupe. The finish has the kind of gloss that pops in the sunshine. It's not looking to be too showy, and instead, this Nova that you easily drive and people talk about long after you pull away from the stoplight. The coupe also likes to show off the right touches of added aggression with details like the power dome cowl hood and chrome dual exhaust tips. The full package comes together with the American Racing Torq Thrust alloys with 15/17-inch front/rear stagger that unites the shine and sporty side of a machine that just makes you want to get in and drive.
When you open the door, you're greeted with a well-done black interior. There has been a solid investment here to have a dark and fresh style on the upholstery, door panels, headliner, dash pad, and the other fundamentals. The interior was redone within the last few years, and the front bucket seats are said to be borrowed from a Chevelle and so they give you plenty of individual comfort. This is a driver-oriented setup with a grippy classic steering wheel, auxiliary gauge trio, and a B&M floor shifter. There's even an upgraded digital AM/FM stereo w/aux input for better driving music. So you can already imagine rolling down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and driving all weekend.
In case you haven't picked up on it yet, we're really liking how this one is made for being driven, and the heart of that feeling is under the hood. The 350 cubic-inch V8 has a bright and tidy style in the middle of the dark engine bay. The motor has been enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Weiand intake, and long tube headers that add even more muscle while also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. The motor is even supported by the right components like an HEI ignition and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. The three-speed automatic transmission is a recent rebuild with a shift kit for performance driving. The undercarriage photos show fresh investments such as bushings, coil springs in front, and leaf springs and shocks in the rear. Add in power brakes, front discs, and modern sports tires, and this Nova is a ton of fun on the streets.
Complete with build receipts, this Nova SS has an attractive style and serious power - all in a package that looks ready to cruise on a whim. So if you're looking to hit the road tomorrow, you need to call today!
