The Chevrolet Nova is a small automobile that saw six generations over two production runs. The first two generations of the car were called the Chevy II. They were pretty decent vehicles, but the third-generation Nova that debuted in 1968 took things up a few notches. It was produced as a coupe, hatchback, and sedan, with a broad range of engines from 153ci to 402ci. It was also produced in Canada, Argentina, and Mexico in addition to the USA. Unlike its older siblings, the new Nova was completely redesigned making it a powerful American muscle car. This 1968 Chevrolet Nova Coupe is a classic example of the iconic nameplate that’s worth checking out and comes from Colorado.
As mentioned, Chevrolet wanted to do something completely new with the Nova, and the perfect idea was to establish it as a contender in the muscle car segment. As a result, the otherwise compact car increased its wheelbase dramatically and was almost a mid-sized vehicle. This 1968 Chevrolet Nova Coupe is completely blacked out, and that makes all the chrome trimming around the car ever more noticeable. If that isn’t muscle car enough, the Weld Racing rims wrapped in a meaty set of Goodrich tires add an extra dimension of muscle to it. Welcoming passengers into the cockpit is a full black leather interior. The car has leather bucket seats up front and bench-style seating for the rear. The meter board is one of the stand-out points of the interior, as its carbon fiber shell hosts a variety of white gauges. Similar to the exterior, the inside of the Chevy has chrome trims, most notable on the door panels and three-spoke steering wheel.
Although not an official SS, this 1968 Chevrolet Nova Coupe is blessed with the SuperSport 5.7L V8 that gave the car a total of 295hp, sent to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission. According to the owner, the engine and transmission of this car have been completely rebuilt, which explains the seemingly spotless engine bay under the hood, and should give you plenty of painless motoring with peace of mind.
