With the proper equipment, Chevrolet's Nova SS was an affordable bomb of a car, a formidable runner right off the showroom floor. The Nova grew from the Chevy II, Chevrolet's entry into the budget compact market. Engine choices expanded as the car grew in size until in 1968 it was redesigned on the Camaro platform, enabling the use of the 396, and renamed the Nova. Chevy thus had another big-block arrow in its quiver. Lighter than almost anything else from GM, the Nova SS396 was incredibly quick, especially the 375 horsepower L78 version.
Meanwhile, the visual side of the SS package remained as low key as ever, as demonstrated by this good-looking 1970 SS396. Cortez Silver with a Black interior, the car has been thoroughly restored and detailed to the highest level of finish. The numbers-matching drivetrain comprises the L78 big-block (more accurately a 402) and turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission turning a 12-bolt Positraction differential. Power brakes with front discs keep things under control.
Interior options include bucket seats, console, AM radio and a soft-rim Sport steering wheel. The few outward clues to the car's performance tell the story: SS badges, black-accented grille and tail and simulated hood air intakes, not to mention those "396" callouts. Magnum-style wheels and Firestone Wide Ovals add a bit more show to this handsome big-block Nova.

I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1969 Chevy Nova SS, so we
decided to take it for a spin. This car is powered by a performance built
396 Big-block, topped with Edelbrock aluminum heads, Performer RPM intake,
and a 4 BBL Carb. All that power is being sent through a four-speed manual
trans and believe me, this thing will really fly. The Cortez silver paint
is very slick, the interior looks like new, and it's riding on a set of
rally wheels, with BF Goodrich tires. This car is extremely well built and
it's ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a

Lot S128 1971 Mercury Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed
Mercury was a force in mid-sixties factory FX racing with its crazy 427
Comets, but by the late sixties had become identified more with luxury than
performance. One of the exceptions to this trend was the Cougar, which
earned a serious performance reputation in both drag and road racing. A
genuine all-matching-numbers concours-quality example of Mercury's ponycar
is offered here in the form of this singularly rare 1971 Cougar 429 Cobra
Jet 4-speed. Only 18 1971 Cougars were equipped with this top-of-the-line
power combination; this car is the only one of that group originally
finished in Black.
Fresh from a private Cobra Jet collection, the car's no-expense-spared
restoration is evident in every detail from its as-new exterior finish and
brightwork to the impeccable Medium Green interior that includes the
unmistakable Hurst T-handle shifter. This is the sort of presentation that
comes from pride of both ownership and craftsmanship.
A factory A/C car with power steering and brakes, this rare and remarkable
car comes with complete documentation that includes a Marti Report.
