Built V8 And Power Brakes: 1969 Chevrolet Nova

I believe it was actor/comedian Jerry Seinfeld who said something about ” you don’t want to be the guy who dies and goes to heaven with the fewest miles on his Porsche…these things need to be driven.” I’m not going to assume that everyone who drives a Nova is going to heaven (or the alternative fiery place or perhaps a place in between where the roads are beautiful and well maintained but the cars are all slushbox equipped Renault Fuegos, but I digress) but if you want a classic muscle car that you will drive and NOT just look at in your garage, I can’t imagine anything better than this next Nova. Find this 1969 Chevrolet Nova bidding for $12,700 reserve-not-met located in Worland, WY via ebay with a few hours to go.

Vehicle Details
Up for your consideration is a white, 1969 Nova with a built 350 bored .030 over backed by a 4 speed manual with Hurst shifter. She started life as a 307 and was purchased by us 25 years ago and has been garaged since and taken out for the occasional cruise. The motor was built and installed in 2006 by local engine builder Robert Alford who was known for consistent times in his race cars and his tough street motors. This car can be your canvas as it is non-numbers matching and needs attention in a few places although it is ready to cruise as is. Fly in, drive out. This is your opportunity to get into a Nova and make it your own sleeper or resto-mod.

What needs work? The rear shelf needs a couple of speakers and upholstery (pictured). The trunk has light surface rust (pictured) that needs to be sanded and sealed. Also, there is light wear in the upholstery in a few spots (pictured).

She is a sleeper until you fire her up and then the heads turn. Fly in and drive her out; we are clearing out some of the collection to focus on a few of our numbers matching investments. Thank you for the consideration and please comment if I can take pictures at different angles or in different light.

Paint and exterior

White enamel paint with no rust in the usual trouble spot below the rear window and around the trunk seal. Light surface rust in the trunk (pictured) but solid and will be fine with a bit of work and some sealer.

Upholstery and interior

Green on green with wear in several places (pictured) including the rear pillar, the back speaker shelf, and the seats around the shoulders / headrests.

Built 350 bored .030 over (355c.i.d) rebuilt in 2006. Mobile 1 Full Synthetic 10W-30 she runs very strong.
