1970 Chevrolet Nova

For sale is a nice 2 owner, highly documented 1970 Chevrolet Nova
Mechanical : Starts up easily when cold or hot. Engine idles, runs very smooth. The original 307 200 Horsepower V8 has been upgraded from a 2 to 4 barrel carburetor (which was recently rebuilt) for a little bit more pepp. Steering box is tight, precise. The suspension has a lot of new parts which make it very nice to drive. It moves down the road straight, brakes straight. Since acquiring the vehicle in 1990 the 2nd owner performed a ton of work on the car for which he kept every single receipt in the folder. He spent a little over $20,000 in maintenance. According to the receipts the previous owner was very meticulous. Multiple sets of tires, constant alignments, brake adjustments, cable / hose replacements, lubrication, r&r of parts as needed. There is a little over $20,000 just in receipts in maintenance. I’ve outlined a good portion of them in the photo album with dates, mileage. Although there is a receipt for each individual shop visit with more specifics on misc. pieces repaired or replaced.


Exterior / Body : The car was repainted in the original color back in 1994. The paint job has a nice finish, but it is not perfect. A 7.5/10. There are a few chips here, there. Panel fitment is decent. Doors open, shut with the right amount of thump. The hood and trunk click in, and lock nice. All the glass is in very good condition. Antenna for the radio is inside the windshield. Chrome is shiny, straight.


Interior : Clean, tidy interior with lots of new pieces. Recent carpet, headliner, dash, door panel, sun visor, arm rest, kick panels, matt replacement. Windows move up and down easily.

History : Purchased in San Diego, California it remained in southern California all of its life. Still has the original California blue and yellow license plates.Original sales contract is still in the file. It shows that the original owner had purchased this vehicle for the amount of $2950. He traded in a 1968 Chevrolet Nova for this car. I thought that was pretty neat.In 1990 the vehicle was sold to the 2nd owner at which point he began to document, file maintenance receipts inside a folder. Inside the folder he saved every single registration slip, 2 separate vehicle manuals, a shop manual as well as a very specific tuning diagrams, passenger car specification booklets, few misc. parts catalogues.
