Description

Up for sale 1966 Chevy Nova Hardtop
2 years ago I had this car shipped from Denver CO to NJ. I purchased from a project car dealer in Denver who got it from an estate of an insurance adjuster. The car was in storage for DECADES, but more importantly never in the NJ salt. When the car got here I opened the driver’s door and the dealer sticker in the door said New Mexico. So this car has been dry and salt free its entire life.
The car is extremely complete, but not running. It is an original 6 cylinder 3 on the tree car. My plan was to create a L79 tribute out of it. To do so I purchased a correct 66/67 327 nova block currently .030 needs to go to .040 , 327 steel crank, rods, NOS oil pan, pick up tube, and oil pump, fuelie heads, L79 intake, 585 carb, pulleys, M20 Muncie, and 12 bolt housing. These all go with the car, not parting out.
The bad news. The car has a sunroof. They did cut 1 front to back brace and the skin. I have a complete roof from a post car that will fix this problem. There was also damage to the passenger rear quarter behind the wheel well. To fix it, someone back in the dark ages, took a 4 door quarter, cut out the quarter on this car, and welded and bondo-ed the quarter. Yes it looks rough. I have an excellent used panel, and a NOS quarter to fix this. I also have a used trunk pan, if the surface scale on the one the car is too ugly for you. The front fenders are shot, but I have a pair of excellent original take offs that go with the car. The grill has a slight smirk (bend upward) on the passenger side, but I have a replacement grill also. The package tray was hacked for speakers, but I have a replacement original section for that.
The car is original Aztec bronze with fawn interior with 1 really old and poor repaint in more of a Mandara Maroon.
With the car being a 6 cylinder, you know it is not bent, because the 6 did not have that much power. I have for the 6 cylinder a reman carb, reman dist, new fuel pump, reman alternator, and starter, and a new gas tank. In case you wanted to run the 6 until you build the 327. The floors and rockers and glass area are all ROCK solid, no rust. I did replace the original windshield and my glass installer said he has never, EVER seen a window channel on a Nova in the area that clean, even 20 years ago when he started doing them.
Clear NJ title in my hand, in my name.
The car is expensive, and I only will take cash. Everybody has very valuable opinions but I do not care to hear them. I have 1 photo of the car, if you want to see the car, you can set an appointment, I am not a photo studio for picture collectors.
