1972 CHEVROLET NOVA – TURBO-FIRE 350ci, V8, RPO L65, 2 BBL


1972 CHEVROLET NOVA – 4-DOOR SEDAN

This Cranberry Red 1972 Chevy NOVA is a RARE FIND in this condition, a fine example of California vintage. In 1972, Chevrolet produced only 46,489 Chevy Nova 4 Door Sedans with a V8 engine. This model has a TURBO-FIRE 350, 350 Cubic Inch, V8, RPO L65 with a five digit odometer reading 73,091.

The prior owner was an elderly gentleman who last registered this car in 2003 when it was stored under a canvas cover until just recently. Over time, the canvas cover caused the exterior paint to display small bubbles. When I recently had the car detailed, it exposed a number of these bubbles on the paint’s surface. The area under the bubbles shows the original metal, so rust is not a factor. It could use a good quality paint job or one could cruise as is.

Given that the vehicle sat for an extensive period of time, I had the fuel tank dropped and cleaned, and replaced cracked fuel line prior to engaging the engine. In preparation of making a cross country trip (west coast to east coast) I had the vehicle inspected by a mechanic and followed up on recommended repairs and services, and then some. Please review the list below detailing the repairs and service that have been performed. In addition, this Nova has new leaf springs, shocks and gorgeous white-wall tires for a comfortable as well as an attractive ride! It appears to have all original components.

Chance favors the prepared mind. The trip was safe, sound and pleasurable. The ride was amazing – they just don’t build them like this anymore. Muscle and Comfort! Everywhere we stopped, this beauty was approached and eyed closely for detail. There were times on the highway when she was acknowledged and appreciated as well.

The interior is original black cloth/vinyl. The front bench seat has a small hole on the edge on the driver’s side seat. The rear seat has a few tears requiring attention or recovering. Both seats are still in excellent shape structurally.

My Buy It Now price is $22,000 with a starting bid at $13,000. If you are interested, please make an offer. It's a great ride.
