1966 Nova Wagon that i have owned for many years and has seen many different looks.
This has been a 3 year project with the help of 2 great friends that are mechanical genius and master auto painter.
The nova was original brownish gold, then went to a white and then decided this car needed a ground up since Wagons have become so popular. Decided to paint it 2005 Chevrolet SSR Aqua Blur, a beautiful blue that changes color in the sun...a translucent paint.
Everything on this car is either new or rebuilt..no short cuts taken. Car was taken down to a shell and was painted as if it came from the factory this color...interior and dash also.
Nova has power steering, power disc brakes, FACTORY AIR and power windows.
- Paint is 2 stage paint using only PPG paint and Clear. The clear coat is the better clear that helps block the ultra violent sun rays...both about 500.00 a gallon and there is about 3 gallons each on this car.
- Motor is a 383 stroker with 525 hp.
- Flaming Rivers front rack,tilt collum and steering wheel.
- Wheels are Weld 15x6 front-15x12 rear..with Hoosier Tires front and rear.
- Ford 9in rear with 410 gears and posi-tract.
- Chevy 350 turbo with B&M Shifter.
- Interior is all new, everything.
The list could go on and on, just some of the nice details about the car.
I do have most receipts for the build and lots of pics.
The body is laser straight and of course no dents or dings....perfect alignment of body panels and all doors open and close as they should...Paint is a 91/2 +..would give a 10 but have found 2 imperfections..small but there. Very fine small scratch on tailgate, very hard to see..easy fix and one spot on the fender, very small and you have to look to find it. I am very anal about my cars so i might be a tad picky.
The motor was custom built, it is all forged, alum heads and used nothing but the best in building this motor.
This car has custom made tinted side and tailgate glass that matches the color of the car. It is legal in all states and has the sticker in the corner of all glass. It is real glass not a tint job with film. I do have the original glass that comes with the car.
Hard to describe what all has been done to the car, but i used nothing but new parts and if you ever did a ground up you know what i mean and what is cost to build a car. I hate to admit but with the cost of the car included i have over 55k invested and there are always more things i could do but had to stop..lol
I am a retired truck driver and cars are my passion, car was built to drive and have fun at local car shows. Car has never been abused, never raced and my wife will tell you they get better attention than her..lol
I will look at trades but you pay the cost both ways. 62-65 nova, 48 anglia , late 50's Cadillac, ssr or corvair spyder.
If you have questions feel free to write, i have left tons of stuff out. If your looking for a clean ,straight Nova that will perform with the best of them and want a great show car or just for cruzin this is her.
Full payment expected with in 7 days of auction close, $2000.00 with in 24 hrs of auction end by pay pal.

Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.
Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST
Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.
Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.

At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
