1970 Chevrolet Nova 396/375 L78 Engine


Description


Part sleeper and part showboat, this 1970 Nova SS is presented with a single repaint in brilliant Cortez Silver. Optioned with power brakes and an AM radio, its blacked-out grille, finned simulated hood intakes, SS badging and simulated front-fender louvers were standard SS fare, accompanied here by Super Sport wheels wearing BFG tires and SS center caps. With only 24k actual miles on the odometer, the interior is all original except 1 bench seat recover and we have the original as well. There was 3 interior broadcast sheets found inside the car. All the exterior LOF glass is original and in pristine condition. The original spare & jack assembly still resides inside the trunk. This Nova L78 was found parked in a garage in Secaucus NJ were it sat since 1974. The engine was rebuilt and runs out very strong. In the muscle car world it is very rare to find a high horsepower car like this that still retains it's original born with drivetrain.

The big-block Nova of this era held a sacred spot to the knowledgeable few in the Bowtie performance world. Many muscle car fans were unaware that the Nova was substantially lighter than its big brother Chevelle. Since the Nova was a post coupe of unibody construction, it was hundreds of pounds less in weight than the hardtop Chevelle with body-on-frame construction. Equipped with an equal drivetrain, the Nova was definitively faster.
