Up for sale we have a beautiful 1968 Chevy II Nova. The '68 Nova was completely redesigned and was the last year for the Chevy II designation. This Nova scored a 97 out of 100 at a Super Chevy Show. It took home Best of Nova and Show Class Winner. From first glance, there's no denying that the body is laser straight with great panel fit. A straight car can only be appreciated fully with a top of the line paint job, and this one won't disappoint. Everything is covered in the Grotto Blue paint that is slick as a ribbon with a mirror finish. This '68 has a Super Sport Hood and Grill that looks like new. At the time of the resto all the chrome was replaced along with the window stainless. Also, all the glass was removed and resealed, and the side glass felt and weather stripping was changed. To complete the look this Chevy II is sitting on a set of steel wheels painted body color with a set of small caps and red line radial tires.
On the inside, it's done in the Dark Blue that complements the exterior color scheme perfectly. When you open the door you'll see it has the front bucket seats with the short center console that houses the factory style gauges and Tee Shifter. All the seat covers and door panels are in excellent condition. Looking at the dash it all looks correct except for the added column tach, it even has the stock style AM radio. In the trunk, it looks neat and clean having the trunk mat with spare and jack.
Under the hood the first thing you'll notice is the attention to detail as it looks just like it would have when new. It features the 350 that's dressed with stock valve covers and intake with a date code correct Quadrajet. The engine is mated to the 350 Trans and the 10 Bolt Posi with 3.55 gears. For exhaust, it has Manifolds with 2 ½” pipes and chambered mufflers. When you look under this Nova it looks phenomenal. The frame and floors look great with new bushings under the front subframe.

Chevy Nova History
The 60s and 70s were a time of competition and advancement in the realm of American compact cars. The classic Chevy Nova was a well-equipped competitor due to it's size, speed, and price tag. Originally called the Chevy II, the Nova gained it's new name in 1969. The Nova was produced from 1962-1988. Designed in 1961 and released in 1962, the Chevy II was a back-to-basics compact car, smaller than the full-size Chevy vehicles, but bigger than the compact Chevy Corvair.The first generation ran from 1962-1965. Nova was the top model in the Chevy II lineup through 1968. The Chevy II nameplate was dropped, Nova becoming the nameplate for the 1969 through 1979 models. The second generation of the Chevy Nova was a faster version equipped with a 327 cubic-inch eight cylinder engine featuring 350 horsepower, which shaved a few seconds off of the previous edition's quarter mile time record. 1968 saw a reincarnation of the Nova as the Nova SS - based mechanically and aesthetically on the Chevy Camaro. Chevy resurrected the Nova badge in the spring of 1984 and released the fifth generation of Novas between 1985-1988. Now, Chevy Novas fall into the collectible car category, on the more affordable end of the spectrum.
