Calling all collectors! This is a highly desirable and authentic Nova SS with the correct 327 V8 engine still in place. A Muncie M-22 rock crusher 4 speed manual transmission will keep your heart and the RPMs revving throughout your drive. To sweeten the pot even more it has A/C. It is the recipient of a meticulous and beautiful ground up restoration that screams quality and still boasts its original Marina blue color increasing desirability. What a sparse opportunity to own an iconic piece of automotive history!

EXTERIOR: This car is a real head turner! The factory correct Marina blue paint has been enhanced with tastefully executed metallic flake that really helps accentuate the body lines. It was expertly laid out with great attention to detail then polished to a very smooth and highly reflective finish. You can literally read a phone book in its shine. All the panels have been painstakingly aligned resulting in very consistent gaps that are spot on. The doors easily closed just like a new car. Looking down the side of the body it is 100% laser straight without a ripple in sight. The front and rear bumpers have been rechromed. The remaining grill, bezels, and trim all look to be original but in fantastic condition. All the glass is nice and clear with just a few minor scratches. It is equipped with reproduction chrome rally rims that are wrapped in BF Goodrich tires that are a little beefier in the rear.

INTERIOR: This interior is in amazing shape and pretty much factory correct. The inside of the door jamb is painted slick just like the exterior. The door panel itself was replaced and the builder retained its original handles that look fantastic. The car has been upgraded with a Church Boys tilt steering column and a very nice aftermarket steering wheel. The dash pad has been replaced and the remainder of the dash is painted body color. The gauges, gauge bezel, and knobs all appear to be original but in great shape. It has been upgraded with a vintage looking stereo and a Vintage Air climate control unit. Additionally, a Stewart Warner triple gauge was added to the lower portion of the dash. That leads down to a refinished center console with SS badging that houses a Hurst 4 speed manual shifter. The beautiful blue front bucket seats have been reupholstered and are equipped with seatbelts. The rear seat and panels also have been refinished and look amazing. The rearview mirror, sun visors, headliner, and carpeting all have been replaced and have a fresh look to them. The dome light is even working, and the rear shelf has an aftermarket speaker added.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood we have a beautifully dressed and factory correct 327 cubic inch V8 engine producing approximately 300 horsepower. It is equipped with many aftermarket upgrades including a Holley carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, AFR aluminum heads, dome top pistons, roller rockers, Pertronix distributor, and long tube headers. All the hoses and wires look fresh and are routed appropriately. It's also equipped with a modern A/C compressor, power steering, and replaced master cylinder. It is cooled via an aftermarket aluminum radiator and six blade clutch fan. A ribbed and polished air cleaner looks great alongside matching ribbed aluminum valve covers. The underside of the hood has neatly been painted just like the body and is complete with insulation. The fender wells and firewall are both nicely painted with satin black paint. The original cowl tag is in place and even the squirters are hooked up. This is a proper engine compartment by all standards!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The underside of the trunk lid and jamb are painted slick just like the car. The weather stripping was replaced. The trunk pan metal is totally solid and may be painted with the factory original spatter finish paint (an original looking sticker is in place on the passenger side inner quarter panel). A full-size spare tire with cover and rubber mat are included.

UNDERSIDE: This bottom side is looking sharp and includes many performance upgrades! The steering system has been upgraded with a Church Boys kit that includes a rack and pinion, a bigger fatter front sway bar, and steering column. The kid also includes suspension components like tubular lower control arms and tie rod ends also for a much-improved driving experience. The real leaf springs look fresh, and the shocks have been replaced. It has disc brakes up front and drums in the rear with fresh lines throughout.
