Wrapping a numbers-matching drivetrain in correct turquoise on turquoise aesthetics, this MacNeish-certified Nova transforms the phrase “investment grade compact” from oxymoron into fact! The beneficiary of a detailed rotisserie restoration that was completed in late 2015, this Nova is a sharp weekend cruiser that currently presents much better than original factory fodder. During the car’s precise reboot, solid sheetmetal was completely striped of its dull, original pigment. With that shell removed, and its foundation massaged into great alignment, correct Tropic Turquoise base was sealed in mirror-like clear. And today, one close look at our high-resolution photos reveals a handsome payoff in the form of one slick Chevrolet muscle car! Even if you forget everything else we tell you about this Chevy II, be sure to pay VERY close attention to what’s under the car’s hood. Motivating this real-deal Super Sport is a 1966-exclusive L79 V8 that, according to the factory, twists stout 11 to 1 compression into 350 Corvette-matching horsepower. Power flows through an original Muncie M20 4-speed, which twists an original 12-bolt axle that’s finished with correct 3.31 gears and a correct posi-traction differential. Holding that virtually unbreakable drivetrain off the ground is a restored double A-arm front and leaf spring rear suspension. Stops come courtesy of manual drum brakes. And all that old school Americana rolls on painted steelies, which spin 6.95-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown 660 whitewalls around polished Super Sport hub caps. So there you have it: a rare, fully documented piece of Chevrolet history that features an original, ’66-exclusive powertrain. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
