A 350 cubic inch engine and 4-speed manual transmission make this a blast to drive.
The 1970s were an excellent time for the famous American automotive brand that we all know and love, Chevrolet. Models like the Chevelle, Camaro, and Nova were going through a massive design change which still makes automotive enthusiasts’ hair curl. The latter vehicle especially was particularly affected by the new style as it continued to evolve within the automotive market. Then the infamous year of 1973 struck. For many reasons, the United States was plunged into economic despair as a shortage of oil and, subsequently, gas plagued the nation. This was the last year that many of the beautiful muscle cars of old that we all know and love could be found in their proper form.
This was the last year of the third-generation Nova, regarded as the most iconic and high-performance iteration of the now famous vehicle. Of course, this beautiful car boasts a set of chrome front and rear bumpers that contrast perfectly with the tuxedo black exterior paint job. In addition, a single white stripe runs along the side of the vehicle to signify that it is a high-performance model. That powerful presence is very well deserved as it is an SS car, making it one of the rarest cars of its kind as pretty much all high-performance models were thought of as too expensive to own at the time due to the oil crisis.
Under the hood of this crazy car is a 350 ci V8, which pushes out a stout 175 horsepower. That may not sound like a lot of power, but this was made when 200-300 horsepower was considered insane. Essentially this was a respectable number for the time and was a lot faster than the base model Novas. You had better hurry to get your hands on this beautiful car as there are already buyers knocking on the door for their chance to own this stunning piece of automotive history.
