Showcase cover image for My First Car 1970 Chevrolet Nova SS

General Information

Nova SS
Black Vinyl Top
I Am The 3rd Owner Of This Car. I Purchased It In 1974, May 6th. My Nextdoor Neighbor Sold Me His Car When I Was Just 16 Years Old. I Have Had This Car All Over Florida, And Several Other States As Well.

This Coming May 6th I Will Have Owned This Car 40 Years. WOW!
1970 Chevrolet Nova SS (Grey)


Originally The Engine Was A 300 HP 350. Not Wanting To Wear Out The Original Matching Numbered Block. I Found An Engine Out Of A 1966 Chevrolet Corvette. A 427 Big Block Engine.
It Has Been In My Nova Over 30 Years Now!
The Interior Is & Was Black GM Madrid Vinyl. Originally It Had A Bench Seat In The Front. Now It Has The Original Style Bucket Seats & Center Console. The Console Has The Oil Guage, Fuel Gauge & Others. Where The Fuel Gage Used To Be In The Dash, Is Now The Tack. VERY NICE!
Also Original.
When I Bought The Car May 6th 1974 It Had An Aftermarket Vinyl Top On It. Once I Was In The Auto Upholstery Business, My Good Friend & Supplier Called Me & He Had Some Of The Old Style Vinyl Topping That Had A Smooth Woven Backing, Not The Nomal Vinyl Topping These Days That Has A Fuzzy Backing On It. He Sold Me 20 Yards. I Sent 5 Yards Of It To Them. They Also Sewed & Heat Sealed Vinyl Tops. The Vinyl Top On My Car Has The same Backing That Was On Them In The 1970's. VERY NICE! Thne I Went To A Very Nice Junk Yard & Found All The Original Mouldings. Now The Vinyl Top Looks Very, Very Original!
Because I'm A Huge Fan Of 60's 70"s & 80's Rock 'N' Roll Music I Will Be Installing A New Stereo. Because It Will Have A 12 Disc CD Changer in The Trunk. It Will Be Awesome To Drive Again!!
The Suspension Is All Original
Wheel and Tire
The Wheels Are Still The Original Ralley Wheels. The Tires Are B.F. Goodrich T/A Radials.
