Description for Chevrolet Nova 1966

Very nice 1966 Chevy II Nova Super Sport (SS) 60s street machine. This is a true v8 SS car (118 Vin), but does not have the matching 327 engine. It has a 1971 350 engine. Brings back the memories of the 60s/70s with period correct and original ET slotted mags, original Mr. Gasket "bug catcher" scoop, hood pins, black diamond vinyl interior and traction bars. The odometer is working and shows just over 5,000 miles, I assume this to be over 105,000.
I drive this car everywhere, it starts, runs, drives and stops very well. It has a 350 roller motor, rear posi, auto shift kit, and is very fast. It shows very well and I take it to shows often. It has a 15 yr old paint job, but still shows very nicely and the paint is shiny, with very few blemishes/chips. The car attracts a lot of attention where ever I take it: it has a nice lumpy cam and bright yellow paint.
The car is EXTREMELY solid top to bottom and underneath, it spent most of its' life in the Midwest. It retains all of its original sheet metal except the center of the trunk, which has been replaced. The car has zero rot and the inner rockers and floors are amazing. When on the lift at the local custom muscle car exhaust shop, the owner told me that it's the most solid Nova he has ever had on his lift.
It's a very nice looking, solid and fun to drive car. The car is fast and sounds great.
Bright yellow paint that that is very shiny and looks very good. There are a few small chips in the paint in a few areas, but it looks very nice and I take it to car shows regularly. The cowl hood is fiberglass. The chrome bumpers and in excellent condition. Brand new roof rail trim. This is a real "SS" car and retains the original VIN plate that has not been altered in anyway. Note the original "SS" trunk lid emblem.
60s style diamond vinyl seats, door panels, package tray and visors. Original headliner in very good condition. Small tear in rear seat and small section of warn piping on driver's seat (easily repairable). 4 speaker DIN style CD player/AM/FM which sounds great. Custom made stereo insert (dash has NOT been cut).
Very well built 1971 Chevy 350 engine that is stout and has a hydraulic roller with roller rockers, aluminum intake and new Holley carb. Pertronix II ignition. Hurst Promatic II shifter (with lockout). Turbo 350 transmission with shift kit and posi rearend. It is very fast. The car has rear traction bars and subframe connectors. It cruises comfortably at 55-60 mph with no issues.
Brand new custom made and professionally made/installed dual exhaust. It sounds awesome with the lumpy cam. See video below to hear it.

The car does not leak any fluids and runs nice and cool. Get in, drive and enjoy the "thumbs up."

I have really enjoyed driving and going to car shows with this car. It gets lots of attention.
