This car is for sale locally. I reserve the right to end the auction at any time if no one has bid on the car and someone comes to purchase it with cash.

There is a lot to tell about the car since so much has been done.

1963 Chevy 'll Nova. It was originally sold in Oklahoma. It was kept in Oklahoma until 2010 when I purchased the vehicle. When I purchased it, it was in original condition, paint, chrome, engine, transmission, interior etc. Everything was original to the car. It had been sitting for a few years without being run very often, but did run. The column shift lever was broken. It took me two years to find the correct shift lever. (Three on the Tree)

The state of Alabama does not give titles for cars over 35 years old. I do have the original Oklahoma title and will give the old title and a bill of sale with the purchase.
