For sale in our Chicago showroom is this very nicely done 1963 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova. The first thing you see is the stunning House of Color Black on Cinnamon Pearl two-tone exterior, the opposing colors being split by a slick silver stripe. Underneath the hood is a 350 cubic-inch Small Block Chevy equipped with the factory iron heads and steel crank, running at a smooth 10:1 compression produced by hypereutectic pistons. It contains a thumping 260 Comp High energy hydraulic cam sending kinetic force through rocker rollers. Sitting high and mighty is an Edelbrock intake with a Demon 650 carburetor containing an electric choke, and it s all wearing a beautiful custom paint-matched air cleaner as its crown. This majestic motor has some Jet Hot coated headers which feed a full length dual exhaust utilizing Flowmaster 2 stage mufflers which give it an unmatched throaty tone. The serpentine belt drive system is from a late 80s V8 Camaro, and consists of a new alternator, water pump, power steering pump, and A/C compressor. The power plant sends all the converted energy through a Muncie 4-speed transmission that contains a Hurst shifter as well as a Centerforce street/strip clutch controlled by a hydraulic throw out bearing. Pushing through to the rear wheels is a GM 10-bolt that is rocking a 4.11:1 gear ratio, drum brakes, and air shocks. The wheels are by Rocket Racing and are wrapped in nearly new BF Goodrich tires. When the vehicle was last acquired it endured a complete disassembly and restoration which was completed in 2006. It has since spent its life in heated storage during it hibernation every fall and winter, and was lightly driven throughout the spring and summers. An update in the quality of the ride is brought to the table through a Heidts front suspension that consists of disc brakes, as well as a power rack and pinion steering system. A Glasstek fiberglass hood sporting a 4 cowl gives the car an aggressive, stout look. Underneath, the firewall has been smoothed and painted, and if that isn t a clean enough look, the battery was relocated to the trunk and it even has a disconnect switch. Hugging you when you re in the cabin are a pair of black leather bucket seats up front which ensure the driver and front passengers safety with new seat belts. The headliner, carpet, sill plates, door panels, and rear seat covers are all new as well. A third brake light has been added to ensure the car is easily seen, even at night. A custom tunnel and front console were installed, and the dash was painted to match the stunning exterior. This gorgeous Chevy II Nova is a great example of what an update on an old car should be! Options include: Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, AM/FM Radio, CD, Leather Interior, Performance Tires, Power Steering, Radial Tires, Seat Belts.
