I am relisting due to making a mistake on the last auction and telling someone what the reserve was (you know who you are, and you are blocked from bidding on this auction), that individual then went and put a bid in right under the reserve, essentially ruining the auction.
I will not tell you what the reserve is, so please don't ask.
1963 Chevrolet Nova Convertible
Magazine with documentary article included with car.
Complete rotisserie restoration done by Wayne Bushey in York PA. The car is spectacular and essentially a brand new 1963 Nova.
White with red interior. New door panels, front seat rebuild, carpet, molding, sills, weatherstripping, etc. (interior looks brand new). Black Mercedes cloth top (not vinyl) really makes the car stand out. Top and frame are virtually new. Additionally, it's really like two different cars! With the top down, it's a red and white convertible (red boot). With the top up it's a black and white convertible! I have had people do a double take wondering if it was the same car! I really like the fact you can change the whole look of the car with the top up or down.
No radio - has chrome radio delete panel - I use a Bluetooth speaker/radio (pictured).

283 V8 motor overhauled (pictures) with Turbo 350 transmission. Drives excellent, strong and smooth shifting. Has new dual exhaust with chrome tips, sounds great! Engine bay is car show ready with all new nuts, bolts, fasteners, clamps, and hard lines. Undercarriage was blasted down and painted gloss can eat off of the bottom of this car (pictures). New Disc brake conversion with all new hardware and hard lines (pictures). All chrome and bright-work are spectacular and new or polished.
The rear end was shortened 3/4 of an inch on each side with new Moser axles, so larger tires would fit in the stock location. 10 bolt rear with 3.36's I believe. Rear sway bar. Cruises great at 75mph. Handles great and tracks straight as an arrow. Currently has rear tires 235/60/14, 8.5 wide on 7" rims, front are 185/65/14, 6.5. Tires are 90% at least. They look awesome and give the car a great stance!

Odometer reads 18350. It was replaced in the restoration, I do not know how many miles on the car prior to restoration. I estimate roughly 2800 miles on the car since restoration.

This car is a beautiful example of what a 1963 Chevrolet Nova looked like when brand new! The car is not an SS (there were no V8 Nova convertibles produced by Chevrolet). I have put chrome SS emblems on the car which are removable - very subtle. This is not a cheap car. There is virtually nothing that needs to be done on this car besides get in and drive. If you want one for less with pitting in the chrome and paint/rust issues, this is not your car......if you want a practically brand new 1963 Nova with almost everything new or replaced, this is your car. I have had a couple 63's, and this one is so quiet inside when driving, because everything is new!

All restoration information chronicled in Nova Times dated September/October 2014 issue. See pictures.

I have many more pictures (nearly 100) of the car and magazine/article - Message me for a link to them

The car is being sold as is. You will not be disappointed in this car! Car is being listed locally as well, and I reserve the right to end the listing at anytime accordingly. $500 non-refundable deposit required by PayPal within 24 hours of auction end. Remainder due by wire transfer. Car will not be released until funds are cleared. Buyer is responsible for all shipping activities and costs. I will be happy to assist with loading of vehicle for shipment and communicate with buyer.
Good luck and happy bidding!!
