The boxy little Chevrolet Nova coupes really caught on in the ‘60s. This sporty, smaller car had some very respectable P3 (power per pound) ratios and was more practical than the new Camaro if you ever needed to put people in the back seat. After its debut in 1962, the Nova matured – and the second generation Nova erased the Chevy II image as a six cylinder econobox - to become truly worthy of a muscle car persona when powerful V8 options became available. The lightweight Nova coupes could be ordered with a 327 CID V8 that delivered plenty of horsepower as this one does. As any small block owner knows, the 327 is one of the best engines Chevrolet ever produced. These high revving and strong pulling little mills have been a hot rodding favorite since their introduction.
The engine in this Nova is solid and powerful and now features a lumpy 270 cam by Comp Cams, forged pistons, a hardened steel crank and a performance tuned Holley carburetor that delivers enhanced torque and performance. The original Powerglide went away and now a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission with a B&M Holeshot torque converter gives the car the best of both the low end and high end spectrum - it launches hard and gets great freeway mileage. The coupe runs front power disk brakes, tinted glass, Goodrich T/A radial tires on rally wheels, and shows less than 18,000 miles on the odometer since it was refreshed in 2010. This hardtop does not have air conditioning, but all the windows roll down, and the Sony AM/FM sound system delivers cool vibes.
The brilliant lipstick red paint on this car is flawless. No rust - not now – not ever - in this cool little Chevy. Bought new in Pennsylvania, the car was driven to Southern California where the same owner had it until 1989. It remained in the Los Angeles area until coming to Las Vegas. Plenty of
documentation comes with the car to verify ownership and registration history of this Nova, including the original Protect-O-Plate. The doors click shut; the glass, rubber and interior are in excellent condition; the tires are fresh, and the shocks and brakes are good. This car is exceptionally clean
and well detailed. The engine compartment is as sanitary as an operating room. The chrome sparkles like a diamond, and the interior appears to be brand new, showing no wear at all. The original jack is in the trunk.
If your bucket list includes an iconic Chevy Nova, and if you enjoy driving a nostalgic 60s car that gets plenty of attention, this vehicle should be considered. It needs nothing, drives wonderfully, and doesn’t have any bad habits. It is as dependable as it is good looking. At the time of this listing, there are perhaps 3 dozen 1966 Nova hardtops for sale across the nation with a wide array of prices. Some are nice. Some are sketchy. Most of them are offered by dealers. This is a private sale by a lifelong car guy. We aren’t interested in any trades, and we are not a dealer, so there’s no financing
– just a square deal. We invite any interested buyer to fly to Las Vegas, take the car for a ride, or get a third party inspection, and compare this great ride to any others out there. Dollar for dollar, this Nova is a super value. It is sure to be the one you choose.
