Sleepers are some of our favorite cars here at RK Motors Charlotte because
they represent ingenuity and craftsmanship designed to put big horsepower in an anonymous
package. For your consideration, we submit this very clean 1966 Chevy Nova
SS hardtop in period-correct turquoise paint, which is powered by a blown
L82 small block under the hood. Is it fast? What do you think?
Actually, the color is code FF Marina Blue, and it's exactly the last color
that you'd expect to eat your lunch at the stop light grand prix. Whose
grandmother didn't have a car that looked just like this? That's the
secret, of course, and your eyes glance over this car but don't linger,
which is just how the sleeper likes it. The handsome lines of the Nova were
typical '60s conservative, and just because they've become popular doesn't
mean they're any more noticeable today than they were forty-five years ago.
Panel gaps are good, but not too good, and the finish is nice, but not too
nice. There's much more to keeping a low profile than factory colors and a
nondescript body style.
The big investment was made on this car is all under the skin. The engine
is a 350 cubic inch L82 small block with four-bolt mains for durability and
a set of reworked aluminum heads to save weight. The dominant feature under
the hood, however, is the massive Vortech Supercharger perched up high and force-feeding the
engine up to 5 pounds of Boost.
Combined with 8.5:1 compression, it makes for a ferocious street piece
that's quick under all circumstances. You'll find yourself riding a wave of
supercharged torque that feels endless, and it hurls the lightweight car
forward like a catapult on the USS Nimitz. The engine bay is clean and tidy
like the rest of the car, with a minimum of flash. Sure, there are some
cool black valve covers with red Chevrolet emblems, and some aircraft
quality lines feeding the fuel system, but otherwise the investment is all
in the hardware, making this one quick, nasty little Nova.
This is also an original 4-speed car, and it still carries a freshly
rebuilt Muncie M20 behind the engine. In back, it has been upgraded with a
bulletproof 12-bolt full of 4.10 gears on a Posi limited slip, which surely
deserve some of the credit for this car's astounding acceleration. The
chassis is extremely clean, and the work is only two years old, so there
are few signs of road use since it was completed. The front suspension
components have been powder coated for long-term durability and the entire
fuel system has been rebuilt from front to back, including a return line to
accommodate the Supercharger's varying
fuel needs. Up front there are disc brakes to ensure that it stops as well
as it goes, and it rolls on a set of handsome Rally wheels. Finishing off
the sleeper look are a set of redline radials which look vintage but grip
like modern tires, giving you another advantage.
According to the cowl tag, this was also an original bucket seat car, and
it has been fully restored in correct code 737 bright blue. Stock condition
means no raised eyebrows from competitors, but it also means this car is
nicely finished with no questionable modifications. In fact, the only
changes to the interior are a set of auxiliary gauges hanging under the
dash, including one for keeping an eye on the Supercharger's Boost. The seat covers, door panels,
headliner, and dash pad are all new and look fantastic in the Marina Blue
coupe. There's also a factory-issued center console housing the shifter for
the 4-speed manual underneath, and the original AM radio with rear speaker
remains in the dash.
How cool is it to have a restored Nova SS packing a big horsepower supercharged
engine that remains completely invisible most of the time? The workmanship
throughout this car is excellent, and you can show it with pride just about
anywhere. Nova fans will appreciate its basic goodness, but you'll have to
decide each time you show it whether to give away its secrets. If that's
your idea of a good time, we have your car. Call today!
1966 Chevy II Nova Duece--FOR SALE
Its no secret; these once little abundant rockets are now becoming more
scarce than their bigger brother and sister cars. Throughout the years of
drag racing and heavy street modifications, these once mighty mouses are
now far and few between.
This little Burnt Orange Nova is absolutely gorgeous! It is fresh out of
our paint shop and sitting pretty. The roller rockers have been readjusted
and tuned up to put you back in the seat quickly. She will run or cruise
to your nearest show, cruise in, or taking the better half for a night out
on the town. There is not enough "thumbs up" in the world when you cruise
in traffic in this little Deuce.
The car houses a Holley Dual Feed Carb, Hooker headers, MSD ignition
upgrade, power brakes, Weld Wheels, Dual Exhaust, Aluminum Intake, BeCool Aluminum
Radiator with polished fan shroud, new style gauge dash and underneath
looks newer than the day it rolled off the line. What a great car!

My Day at the paint booth! Lots of time lapse in this video of every step I
took to get the 74 Nova painted. If you are wondering why I taped green
tape to my clothes is because I wanted to make sure my clothes do not flap
and touch the car while painting. Its tight against my body.
