As you all know, your friends at RK Motors Charlotte take pride in specializing in rare and hard to find classics. And that’s why we’re proud to feature this fully documented, registry-listed L79 Nova. Wrapping a numbers-matching drivetrain in correct Marina Blue on Black aesthetics, this highly original wonder transforms the phrase “investment grade compact” from oxymoron into fact! The beneficiary of a partial restoration that was conducted in the mid ’90s, 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 Marina Blue base was sealed in mirror-like clear. And today, one close look at our high-resolution pictures reveals a handsome payoff in the form of one slick Chevrolet muscle car! 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. Behind that mill, an original Muncie 4-speed, which hangs a Muncie (P) assembled on March (03) 18th (18) 1966 build stamp behind a correct 3885010 casting number. That transmission twists a correct 12-bolt axle. 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 traditional Chevrolet Rallies, which spin F70-14 Firestone redlines around polished trim rings and low profile center 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.
