Looking to kick 2016 off in a super sharp cruiser that you can parade down Main Street and park at local cruise nights? Looking for a cool piece of Americana that'll turn heads anywhere it goes? If you're in the market for some vintage metal that's stylish, owerful and has lots of history, ho says you have to buy a stuffy, igh maintenance trailer queen? Just pick up the phone, all your friends at RK Motors Charlotte and we'll hook you up with a great car like this awesome Chevy Nova! Backing a stout small block with a clean restoration and supple leather trim, his fully sorted weekender draws big crowds and big compliments. And if you're one of the many enthusiasts looking for a fun classic that's unrelentingly cool, t's your ticket to car guy nirvana!


Not far removed from a rotisserie restoration, his Nova wears a custom coat of Metallic Blue 2-stage that's so smooth it could be described as 'wet-look'. At the front of the car's subdued and classy panels, familiar stainless grille hangs a "CHEVY II SS" badge between modern headlights, fresh chrome bumper and a color-keyed, ASCAR-style spoiler. Behind that grille, factory hood flows to a filled cowl, hich founds like-new glass under bright stainless frames. At the sides of that hood, clean, odernist profile is built around traditional door handles and a custom fuel door. And at the back of that profile, second chrome bumper props fresh taillights at the edge of billet decklid trim.


This spectacular Chevy rolls thanks to a proven Vortec V8: a mill that provides levels of performance and reliability most classic car owners only dream about. Straight from GM, hat fully sorted powerplant utilizes a cast iron block, ightweight aluminum heads, oil-near-plug ignition and aluminum flat top pistons to create razor-sharp throttle response and a torque band that's as wide as Texas. At the front of the dyno-tuned engine, modern serpentine system spins a fresh alternator and polished AC compressor beneath a color-keyed Spectre air tube. Once oxygen enters that tube, t flows through a color-keyed throttle body to an LS-style intake, hich is bolted between a Comp LS1 cam and .020-surfaced heads. High-octane fossils are provided by traditional electronic fuel injection. Sparks are sequenced through color-keyed Summit Street & Strip wires. Spent gases exit via ceramic-coated block hugger headers. And cooling comes courtesy of a big aluminum radiator that's backed by a large electric puller fan. Aesthetically, he car's custom engine bay is a color-keyed work of art that pairs handsome looks with great performance. Niceties such as polished fluid reservoirs, raided hoses, Lokar throttle linkage and Eddie Motorsports hood hinges add just the right amount of flash. And the net result is a buttery smooth, uscle-bound V8 that, hrough its distinctive rumble, oretells this classic's true hot rod nature.


When the small block jumps to life, t spins torque through a proven Tremec T56 6-speed that was sourced from a 1994 Camaro. That transmission, ompletely overhauled in 2012, wists power to a Currie 9-inch axle, hich is built around a Truetrac limited-slip differential and big, .10 gears. That color-keyed pumpkin pushes a TCI torque arm rear-half, hich floats sturdy Ridetech coil-overs under Detroit Speed wheel tubs. Opposite those tubs, TCI front clip balances power rack-and-pinion steering between two more Ridetech coli-overs. At the corners, eefy Wilwood calipers bridge the gap between drilled rotors, uality Hydraboost hydraulics and a requisite Wilwood master cylinder. Directly under the car's color-keyed floors, oated exhaust pipes shuttle spent gases through an H-shaped crossover and coated Flowmaster mufflers. And everything rolls on polished American Racing Torq Thrust IIs, hich lap in 275/40ZR17 Falken Azenis in front of 315/30R18 Falken Azenis.


Inside, custom, ED-lit cockpit adds style and convenience. Modern leather buckets feature 6-way power adjustment for the car's driver and front passenger. A painted and leather-capped dash complements full Auto Meter Phantom telemetry with Vintage Air climate control and Pioneer touchscreen audio. A metal, eather-wrapped console frames metal cupholders in front of a short Lokar shifter and chrome power window switches. A billet rearview mirror reflects a sculpted headliner, hich melts into tri-tone doors that are dotted with billet handles. Beneath those doors, extured carpet floats color-keyed floor mats around billet foot pedals. The driver holds a polished and half-wrapped steering wheel above modern cruise control and a polished, ilting column. And the passengers stash valuables in an electronically actuated, ustom upholstered trunk.

This heavily massaged hardtop is one of the coolest cruisers on the planet! As it sits, he car offers the best of both worlds: a fully restored classic, nd a unique hot rod that sets itself apart from virtual acres of brightly colored pony cars and overwrought land yachts. We don't often feature Chevy IIs, nd given the attention this Nova draws in our showroom, t probably won't last long!
