This 1966 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova wagon is one of the most interesting cars we have seen in a while. It has been under a decade-long restoration, and the details prove it was a labor of love. It makes for a true cruiser with a classic style and fresh feel.
The second-gen Chevy II is already a rarity for only being around for two years, and the wagon is even rarer with the sedan outselling it nearly five to one during that time. So you're already looking at distinction even before you check out the high-gloss finish. The factory-correct Regal Red was resprayed during the restoration, and it shows off just how much work has gone into this car. All the panels line up to make sure the sheet metal's full-length crease looks like an almost unbroken line down the flanks of this wagon. You can really tell they worked to erase any trace of this grocery-getter hitting any shopping carts. Instead, the bright chrome bumpers, lowered stance, and bright white roof are all about creating an awesome classic cruiser style.
The interior continues the noticeable investments in quality. The seats, door panels, and carpeting have a like-new quality that turns back the clock 55 years. It has a true vintage style you can feel, right down to the Nova's thin-grip dual-spoke steering wheel. And the large cargo area and split tailgate make this the ideal classic for everything from camping to ballgames. So since this loves to be a useful classic you'll love to drive, and so it has the right upgrades, like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, stereo speakers, and an auxiliary gauge trio. Also, you can install the headliner of your choice, and that seems like an opportunity to add something cool/custom with all that available real estate.
Because this wagon is already so distinct, the engine bay keeps the classic inline-six motor. The consignor claims this 230 cubic-inch motor has only about 4k miles on it since being rebuilt. So while we all know plenty of V8s that would easily fit here, we just like how this one wants to be a true classic-style cruiser. And it really was made for driving. That's why there's added confidence out on the road thanks to the upgraded CPP front suspension, Viking shocks, and the grip of modern Continental sport tires. Plus, there's just something unmistakably cool about taking control of the motor the old-fashioned way with a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and restoration photos that document the work that went into a distinctive classic like this. The excellent grocery getter is up for grabs, so don't miss your chance. Call now!
