Very cool and nice 1972 Nova bought from Ricardo from Merced, California. Ricardo wanted to build a new shop so he needed the money. Thats why he sold the Nova.
Ricardo had the car for 8 years and had the engine rebuild by a famous local engine shop. The original engine was bored to 355 cubic inches and completed with an Edelbrock intake and 4 barral carburator. Electronic ignition was also added. Some shiny parts like a chroma alternator, alternator bracket and water neck. The engine runs like a champ and sounds really badass with the dual Flowmaster exhaust!!!
The complete frame, control arms, inner fenders, radiator support and firewall were painted with nice gloss black paint. Looks very clean and shiny.
The Nova is equipped with power steering and power disc brakes. The springs, bushings and tie rods were all renewed over the years. The rear leaf springs are also new. They are 5 pack multi leafs.
The chrome is nice and the bumpers are like new.
Interior is completely redone by Ricardo's cousin who has an Upholstery shop in town. Seats, carpet, door panels, headliner, etc etc, all nice. The after market steering wheel looks good on it and in the center console are 3 additional gauges to keep track on the engine. Engine temperature, oil pressure and voltage.
New door rubbers are installed and also a new trunk seal.
The paint, called "lime green", and is nice and still looks good but it is not a 1000 point show car. It has some imperfections but overall really nice for a 50 year old car. NO RUST!!!
The seats were added with SS (Super Sport) logo's just like on the grille and rear panel. Its not a real SS but a nice tribute.
The wheels were a little too wide for the car so we installed a brand new set of 15 inch rally wheels with brand new white letter tires from BF Goodrich TA Radial. The sices are 235-60-15 and 215-65-15
We have had this Nova checked by our technical specialists (certified TÜV/RDW mechanics) for 14 essential safety points such as suspension, steering, brakes, lighting and accessories. Where necessary, parts were renewed or improved. All this so that you can drive many safe kilometers with this fantastic classic.
Please note that this is a 50 year old classic car. This is not a brand new or fully restored 1000 point show car. It's very nice, but there will always be something that's not perfect or something to improve or innovate.
The car comes with american title and import documents for EU. We can help with RDW, TUV and Belgian homologation.
We speak German, English and Dutch.
We can transport to any EU country.
It drives and steers super tight, but is also a great car for cruising long distance..
