The Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova lineup would see the light of day in 1961 and go on until 1979. It's a well-remembered nameplate in the United States, as it fiercely fought within the competitive compact car segment. This 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS is an excellent reminder of what the typical family man may have lusted after in the Sixties. Furthermore, this 85,000-mile car, which is reportedly an original SS, has undergone four years of restoration to bring it to the shape that you see in our photos. Some photos of the restoration process are available to see as per the current owner.
This red stunner of a 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS wears new red paint and rolls on a set of aftermarket alloy wheels. There's original SS badging throughout the car, and everything else, such as lighting and chrome work, shows off a similarly pristine outlook. The car also wears 327 badging that's partially but not fully reflective of the powertrain under the hood; we'll get into that in just a few moments. The black interior is similarly good-looking, thanks to the restoration. We're told that the seats were reportedly recovered during the restoration. There's no air conditioning, heater, or radio, so you're left to fit those on your own, should you desire. Else, you can keep this 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS as spartan as you wish and let the pure thrill of driving be all the stimulation and comfort necessary.
This 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS has a V8 with the bottom end from a 350ci unit and the top end from a 327ci V8, hence the reason we called the 327ci badging along the car to be partially but not fully accurate. The drive is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission that was reportedly rebuilt in 2020. There are disc brakes on the front wheels, while drums handle braking duties at the rear. All in all, you should be in for quite a classic experience when driving this 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS home.
