Description
This car was constructed with performance as the focal point. The power plant is a monstrous 468 cubic inch engine that is begging for more street miles. That paired with a canted 4-link rear suspension and numerous other upgrades makes this car a certified street beast!

EXTERIOR: The Mediterranean blue is a knockout color that has been nicely accented with white Yenko side stripes and hood decal (they are vinyl and can be removed). The paint has been wet sanded and polished to a very .....
reflective finish. The doors open and close easily like a new car. A 2.5 inch fiberglass cowl induction hood has also been added and has hood pins. We installed new chrome rally rims. The size is 215/65R15 up front and 245/60R15 in the rear. The front grill appears to be an original that is in fantastic shape. The headlights have been upgraded to halogen and also have built-in blue running lights that can be turned on and off with a separate switch. The taillights look like new as well as the chrome trim rings. A front spoiler has been added. The front and rear bumpers have been rechromed and look great. The remainder of the trim minus the vent windows looks have been replaced at some point and shines nicely. The vent window trim looks original but in great shape. It has chrome dual sport mirrors. All the glass appears to be original and has some light scratches.

INTERIOR: What a nice clean interior that was built with comfort in mind! A Classic Consoles center console with padded armrest and cup holders is a much appreciated upgrade. The Procar aftermarket sport bucket seats are a nice addition to this interior as well. They are very supportive and keep you nestled tightly. The back seat has been reupholstered to match. The door panels have been replaced all the way around and are in fantastic condition. The headliner and visors are new as well as the rearview mirror. The dash pad has also been replaced; the dashboard has been repainted smoothly. The gauges, instrumentation, and climate control all appear to be original and in good condition. An Auto Meter Sport-Comp tachometer has been added to the steering column and a SunPro triple gauge has been added to the lower dash. Also, aftermarket switches for the lights and horn have been added to the lower dash. A vintage looking digital radio has been added and the kick panels are molded to accept 5.5" round speakers. The carpeting has been replaced. A TCI outlaw ratchet shifter is a sweet performance upgrade that sits nicely between the seats next to a custom hand lever that engages the parking brake. The dome light is working, and seat belts have been installed all the way around!

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Dang that's a big motor in a little car! It's a fresh looking 454 block massaged out to 468 cubic inches. Its upgrades include but are not limited to a Holley double pumper carburetor with fuel pressure gauge, HVH Super Sucker, Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, K&N air filter, Hedman headers, MSD distributor, MSD 6AL-2 electronic ignition with rev limiter, and MSD Blast 2 coil. It's dressed up with chrome valve covers and alternator. The power steering pump also looks new. It also has power brakes. Additionally, a large Griffin aluminum radiator has been added with dual electric fans. An oil cooler and transmission cooler have also been added in front of the radiator. All the hoses and wires have been routed neatly, squirters are hooked up. The fender wells and firewall have been nicely painted black. I'm really liking all the performance and aesthetic upgrades that were done here!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The underside of the trunk lid and the jamb are painted Mediterranean blue just like the body and has been nicely polished. The weatherstrip has been replaced. The battery has been relocated to the trunk and placed in a Taylor stainless steel safety box mounted on the passenger side. A full-size spare and fire extinguisher are also included.

UNDERSIDE: This car has received a ground up restoration and the undercarriage is looking sharp! A PSC steering gearbox has been added. The remaining steering components look mostly stock and have been maintained as needed. The front has been upgraded with a fatter swaybar and the shocks have been upgraded with KYB gas units, ball joints have been replaced. Frame connectors have been added to keep the body from twisting. The rear suspension is totally fresh and highly upgraded with a Chris Alston Chassis works canted 4-link system. This includes pivot-ball style upper and lower control arms, splined anti-roll bar, ride height adjustable billet shock mounts and VariShock coilovers. The system cost $2,900 plus installation. There are power disc brakes at all four corners and all the lines have been replaced. The emergency brake is hooked up. The dual exhaust has been upgraded with Hedman headers, nice fat 3 inch tubes, and cross pipe with Flowmaster mufflers. The fuel tank and lines have all been replaced. Looking up at the 468 motor everything looks nice and fresh, neatly painted Chevy orange. The high torque starter is wrapped with a heat protective material. The Turbo 350 transmission looks great and has a polished TCI ribbed pan. In back is a 12 bolt rear end that is rebuilt with an Eaton posi unit, new Strange axles, Torino flange, and LPW ultimate aluminum cover. The floors appear solid and rust free, they have been neatly painted black. All the suspension and undercarriage upgrades really set this Nova apart from the rest!

SERVICE: Our team of professional mechanics has completed a thorough instruction on this car and repaired or replaced the following items: replaced the rims, installed new window tracks on rear quarter windows, repaired the blower wiring, replaced the speedometer o-ring, and rewired the alternator.

If you want to go fast, ride in comfort and look great while doing it, this '72 Nova may be the right car for you!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
