A single-year bold factory style, rumbling V8 power, and the right Super Sport upgrades make this 1972 Chevrolet Nova SS Tribute the classic that knows how to get the right kind of attention just by arriving on the scene.
The trim tag tells us the Orange Flame is the factory-correct color, and that's quite important to Chevy fans. It was only offered in 1972, and it means this SS tribute was born to be bold. There was even a quality respray later in life so that this one radiates with .....
a modern clearcoat shine. The sunlight loves to show off the straight panels and good gaps seen throughout this coupe. Adding to the shine is the solid investment in newer brightwork you see everywhere from the wraparound chrome bumpers to the window trim. Plus, as a proper SS tribute, they made sure to give you all the best pieces. The blackout grille, blackout rear panel, vent trim hood, ribbed rockers, and full SS badging get this one instant respect. And the 15-inch rally wheels help unite classic shine and sporty style in this vintage Nova.
Just like the exterior, the interior has the factory-correct color and it's attractive because of an investment in quality. Nice carpeting, detailed door panels, a smooth dash, and upgraded upholstery with velour-like inserts make the full package quite inviting. So you'll happily bring along family and friends. There's even a retro-style AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and modern speakers to keep everyone entertained. But no matter how many people come along for the ride, the driver is always king. You have later high back bucket seats in front, a three-spoke sports steering wheel, a B&M floor shifter, and an AutoMeter gauge package neatly mounted under the dash.
Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch V8. It has a little extra flair from the valve covers and air grabber. The V8 has been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, HEI ignition, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. Plus there are plenty of newer maintenance items like hoses, wires, plugs, and brake booster. So you can start to see how this bold Nova was built to be a soil runner. You'll even spot newer front end components and bushings in the undercarriage photos. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is the kind of stout unit that was built for big block duty, so it can handle this enhanced motor and more. Plus power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and wide BF Goodrich Radial T/A make for a solid all-around driver.
This Nova takes a rare and bold color and upgrades it to Super Sport status with a well-done small block. That's a receipt for a great memorable classic, and that's why you don't want to miss this Chevy. Call today!!!
