Cool paint, a powerful V8, and some well-placed upgrades make this 1966 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova the kind of hardtop classic that's hard to forget.
There was a big restoration investment in this coupe a few years ago, and the quality is still quite evident today. The bright red paint makes it instantly distinctive. It has a nice gloss of a quality application, and the vividness looks close to the Rally Red that came on the '66 Corvette. In fact, the 15-inch Rally wheels were borrowed .....
from the bigger brother, too. So this one has a substantial look. It's also imposing because '66 debuted the second generation that had a crisper style and slab-sided intimidation. And the expertly deleted trim lets you focus on pieces like the wide chrome bumpers and big exhaust tips.
Inside is a well-done black interior. There's quality in the details, right down to the headliner and door panels. And it's always great to have a Nova with bucket seats. The B&M floor shifter, grippy sports steering wheel, and full digital gauge package are well-placed additions that really make it feel like a driver's classic. The stereo has been upgraded to a retro-style AM/FM/cassette unit with nice 6x9 speakers. So you know this coupe is perfect for rolling down all the windows to show off the pilalrless hardtop profile and driving around with your favorite music.
The largest motor for 1966 was a 327, and so a 350 cubic-inch V8 is such an easy and worthwhile upgrade. Not only does this have the extra displacement, but also a performance intake and four-barrel carburetor for enhanced power. The upgraded dual exhaust lets this V8 exhaust with a nice tune. And because this is the kind of hardtop you'll want to cruise everywhere, it also comes with good driving features, like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and wide Firestone tires.
These second-gen Novas were only around for two model years, and so it's always nice to find a well-presented coupe with a head-turning style. Don't let this deal slip away, call today!
