1966 Chevrolet Nova SS L79 Additional Info:

Yes, this is an L79 Nova. Those of you who know the significance are already on the phone to us. But for everyone else, just know that this is the ultimate motor available for the 1966 Chevrolet II Nova SS, and only a few were produced. So the stampede you're hearing is the rush for this rare numbers-matching 327 V8 car and its correct four-speed.Someone took very special care to make sure that everything on this Chevy II Nova Super Sport looks fantastic. The exceptional fit and finish help emphasize the Nova's clean, straight lines. The mirror-like black finish tells you how great the panels are, and it instantly makes you a believer in the advantages of a modern clearcoat. Even if this Nova was trying to keep a low profile, Chevrolet left hints at performance on every side of the car. There's special SS badging on the chrome grille and bright rear panel, as well as the elegant "Super Sport" script on each rear fender. The final piece to any fast Chevy from the muscle car era is a set of those iconic Rally wheels.This car came the right way from the factory with black vinyl buckets, so why mess with a good formula? Instead, just like the exterior there's been investment in preservation and restoration to make this a stellar interior. The chrome center console is another hallmark of the SS package. Everything looks factory original, from the bright accents on the black door panels, to the heat/defrost controls, to even the push-button AM radio. The stylized steering wheel gives it all a nice upscale touch, and beyond that are the wide, clear gauges you love on a 60s American icon. But because this is such a valued classic, there were a few upgrades to keep your mind and body more comfortable. This includes ice-cold air conditioning and auxiliary gauges to keep a better eye on that important motor.Under the hood is one of the best small-block motors of the muscle car era. The L79 327 cubic-inch V8 is a legend for making 350 hp right off the showroom floor. This numbers-matching powerplant even correctly wears a Holley four-barrel carburetor. Because people will want to see this icon, it is ready for show duty with the shiny air cover and valve coves in the tidy engine bay. But a car like this is really meant to be driven. After all, the lightweight hardtop coupe body makes it one of the best muscle cars on the streets, especially when mated to its factory-correct four-speed manual transmission. That's why we really love this one. With features like the newer aluminum radiator and dual electric fans, it has been reinforced to really drive it. So now this powerful small block can be go through traffic with the A/C cranked and still not break a sweat. This is an exceptionally powerful and sought-after Nova, and there's even the owner's manual and a partial factory buildsheet to back it all up. It's a coupe that any car show would love to have and has been maintained to make sure you can drive it there. The ultimate L79 Chevy Nova is likely only going to come around once; will you be quick enough to make it your own? Call today!!!
