saved up money to buy first car, and of course my first choice was a Chevy Nova. Came across this sweet deal on offer up and bought it. Got it for 1,800 !! Its got a V8 305 engine. has mint interior. Factory paint and was garage kept its whole life body is rust free. also The A/C works which caught me by surprise, really stoked about this Nova! Such a smooth drive, Best purchase I’ve ever made!!!

planning to get the engine rebuilt soon. and probably paint it one of the stock colors available back in ‘77. I'm one to keep things stock . Also thinking of putting some fatter tires on it. Got 16’ right now

$1,800 & in such Good Shape is Cheap. My 77 Nova Had 64,265 Original Miles on it in Feb. 2014 when I Bought it for $4,350 with Tax, Title & License.

In Regards to Your 16" inch Rims, it's a Nova, Not a Truck.

If You're wanting to Restore it to Original Specs, it Came with 14" inch, 5 Lug Rally Rims, where The Holes Had Chrome Inserts, The Chevy Emblem Center Caps were Chrome & Made Out of Metal, Chrome Lug Nuts & Chrome Trim Rings.

I wouldn't install any Rims Bigger than 15 X 7's on The Front & 15 X 8's on The Back. Anything Wider on The Front & The Back will result in Modifications having to be performed on The Front & Rear Ends.

Tire Wise for The 15 inch Rims in Those Widths, You'd want 215/65/15's on The Front & 235/60/15's on The Back. Both Tires will be right at 26" inches Tall & They will Provide you with a Smooth Balanced Ride.

I'd Suggest Cooper Cobra Radial G/T's with Raised White Letters.

Also, install some Monroe Gas Shocks, They're a Little Pricey, but They're Worth The Money.
