SELLING FROM MY PRIVATE COLLECTION

This 1963 Chevrolet Nova is a top car with many top parts.

 

History

In 2018, the car was purchased in Modesto California from Mike, a retired metal worker, who had already invested a lot of money in and renovated it. Mike also had a Harley and he wanted to continue with it, so the Nova had to be sold.

This is the 2-door hardtop coupe.

The Nova came to the Netherlands where it was first registered in March 2019 with a Dutch license plate. Various improvements were subsequently made, such as a completely new interior, new wheels, power steering, and many more upgrades.

 

Engine

The Nova is equipped with a 350 that has been bored up to 355cui. A hot cam and roller rockers have been installed for increased horsepower and torque as well as an Edelbrock performer intake manifold and an Edelbrock carburetor. Mallory electronic ignition for higher reliability. Sanderson headers with Magnaflow mufflers make this engine sound wonderfully powerful. A serpentine belt with 6 grooves drives the water pump, alternator, and steering pump. Everything looks great!!

The engine is equipped with GM Performance valve covers and a nice open-air filter.

A thick 3-row aluminum radiator with 2 x 10-inch fans is mounted for cooling.

The TH350 has a shift kit and a 2500-stall converter. The gearbox shifts as it should.

In some photos you can still see the computer, tank and other parts of the Fitech carburetor that was on it, but it has been replaced by a regular Edelbrock carburetor.

Paint and exterior

The car does not have a super shiny paint job. The car is somewhat dull, especially on the left side, and there is a kind of “patina” in the paint. But this is exactly what makes the car unique and super cool!!! You have to see this!!!

No rust, no bubbles in the paint, this is a California car!!

This is a car you must see! The stance, The sound of the engine, The interior, Under the hood, Everything great!!!

This is a unique car of which you will not find a second one. Power, sound, stance, what a car!!!!

Lots of invoices and other documents come with this power monster!!

Please note: you are looking at a classic car that is 60 years old. This is not a brand-new or fully restored 1000 point show car. It's a super cool car, but there will always be something that isn't perfect or something that needs to be improved or updated.
