Classic Car Overview

This 1963 Chevrolet Nova (aka the Chevy II) is a neat little droptop bruiser that speaks softly and carries the proverbial big stick. With an unassuming look, this flyweight fighter is capable of beating up on some much more powerful hardware, all for a bargain price. Sound like your kind of fun? Read on. The trick to building an effective cruiser with good power is to keep it low-key. The vivid blue metallic paint has just the right 60s vibe that makes it look right when youre out cruising. Not detailed to show levels, it still looks good on the roll and when you stop to talk a bit with friends, and theres nothing better than a solid driver grade convertible to take out and have some fun with. Theres a nice blend of new and old, with shiny paint and good original trim that suggests this car has spent its life in a pleasant place. The sheetmetal is quite straight, and if youre looking to run hard and enjoy the sun, the lightweight convertible Chevy II is about as good as it gets in the muscle car arena. No modifications to the body were permitted, not even a cowl-induction hood, and they resisted the urge to slap a set of SS badges on it or to even upgrade the grille. Instead, this looks like a clean, mild-mannered Nova with no stories to tell. And honestly, that was entirely the point. Its nice, but not too nice, and stock, but not too stock, if you know what I mean. Inside, the light blue vinyl upholstery is clearly newer, and it effectively duplicates the original stuff so nobodys eyebrows will be raised at a casual glance. The low-back seats are original-style equipment, and work well with the low-profile mission, although the late-model shifter and middle console will undoubtedly get people talking. You know this one was built for more than just slow, Sunday cruises, however, with the fat, small-diameter Nova SS steering wheel, and a set of white-face aftermarket gauge next to the factory speedometer inside the factory bezel, but nobody can see that stuff when theyre next to you at a stop light. The original AM radio is still in the dash and is ready for an upgrade, and the original instruments and trim inside the dash still look great as well. Factory door panels and plush carpets are simple but do the trick, and theres a white convertible top that looks good and folds neatly, so youll have no complaints about spending Saturday night behind the wheel of this convertible. The trunk was finished with spatter paint and looks very solid, and theres enough room back there to accommodate for most travel plans. The engine is a fuel-injected 350 LT1 cubic inch V8 small block, which isnt radical by any means, but thanks to the Novas light weight, it gives the car impressive performance. Mild enough to drive every day, it was clearly built for the street. A big air cleaner and aftermarket intake gives it a modern look under the hood, and the black finned valve covers match it all nicely. Frankly, the motor almost looks likes it always belonged. Its linked to a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive that with a Camaro front clip together make for a very comfortable highway cruiser, while the durable rear end handles the added firepower with ease. Stock headers feed a pair of Flowmaster-style mufflers, and the chassis is also very presentable and solid. Traditional Rallye wheels carry all season radials that finish the look nicely. Big fun on a small budget, this Nova convertible delivers in ways that cars costing tens of thousands more just cant. All you have to do is call!
