1963 Chevy Nova First generation of the Novas. Incredible award winning car with a crazy amount of trophies and plaques to prove it. During the cars presis reboot, the simple yet elegant paint job was done. The underbody and interior was all undercoated, painted, and soundproofed. The chrome, with exception of the bumbers, are all original along with the stainless steel that was all stripped, straightened, polished, and reanodized by Ano Bright of Hollywood CA. The rocker panels stainless covers were a nice after market add on. Lift up the hood and you’ll find a professionally built 454 CI with 400 horsepower, a professionally built 400 transmission, and a Lokar floor shifter with original console and Gear Vender under/overdrive. Comp cam and roller rockers, Edelbrock 750 fm carb, Edelbrock hi-rise intake manifold, Flame Thrower HEI distributer, Sanderson block headers and Alan Grove AC/ALT brackets are just a few more nice additives to keep you intrigued. When it comes to keeping up apperances, we think you’ll agree with us when we say the entire engine compartment is super clean, super attractive, and ready to roll! The nova has a 9 inch posi 31 spline rear defferential with Moser axels, 325 gear ratio, and Global West lowered leaf springs. The Chris Alston Chassisworks front suspension kit that was added includes aluminum inner fender panels, rack and pinion steering, Wildwood disc brakes (both non power), dropped spindles, coil over shocks, and an Ididit steering column. Reguardless of what motor made its way into the subframe, the Nova always stayed true to its simplistic roots. No place was more evident of that than the cars cockpit. Front and center are nicely restored grey leather seats incerted with multi-colored cloth material on the inside. The padded dash was recoverd to its original look. A tach from Shiftworks was installed in place of the clock in the instrument panel. The Nova now has Classic Auto air conditioning, Dakota Digital cruise control, an American Auto Wire wiring kit, AM/FM with 10 disk changer, and a custom audio sound system.
