This is an original SS. The VIN shows it is a 1X27K. The engine is stamped with the original VIN number. So this is a CKD, 350 4Barrel carb which is the highest trim for Nova 72. It was built in Willow Run, Michigan. It has been upgraded to a 12 bolt rear end. The CKD also means that it is a equipped with the 350 transmission. So this is the only 1972 Nova SS on Ebay that is a confirmed original engine, correct 350/350 equipped. This was a frame-off restoration so the whole underbody of the car is painted. This was done before the car was used as a show car in Illinois, so the undercarriage is no longer in show condition. However, it is in incredible shape. I have kept the car indoors so the interior has never been exposed to sunlight. It has dual Borla exhaust. The title said exempt when I bought the car so no representations are made as to mileage, only that the dash is clean and the lens is clear.
The temperature and oil pressure gages work as well as the after market tachometer. The speedometer and fuel gage do not work. The speedometer may work by time of purchase. It currently has a full tank of 93 octane fuel.
This car was a show car in Illinois for many years. The trunk is full of trophies that this car earned at the Centralia Car Show. Own a piece of Americana. The car fires right up. The paint does have some blemishes and I would consider it a 8/10 on paint. Also an 8/10 on interior. The custom bucket seats swivel and are diamond tucked upholstery. I bought this car in 2011 and it has been a great conversation piece. I have driven less than 100 miles on it. Ready to pass it on to its new owner.
This car also has shaved door handles. The doors open via a Viper remote control which activates the solenoids. The car also has neon lights that are an orange to reddish in color and really make it stand out at night. Finally, the car is equipped with factory original size 14 inch wheels. The tires have been on this car for over 20 years. As such I would strongly recommend that they be replaced. I also would not advise anyone to drive this car back home. I bought a 1967 Chevelle in Philadelphia and drove it to Houston. Not a good idea. Several fun repairs on the way like an alternator replacement in the snow but with plenty of help. This type of car is rear wheel drive and I would also not recommend driving if you live in cold or snowy environment. I’d recommend the car be trailered. I have had the car on for several hours at a time and it does not overheat. It is equipped with in auxilliary fan in addition to the factory style water pump pulley fan. Any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
