The third generation 1968 Chevy II / Nova models were
fully redesigned with an extensive restyle
on a longer 111-inch wheelbase that gave Chevy's compacts
a chassis that was just one inch shorter than that
of the midsize Chevelle coupe.
The '68-'72 models were the last GM cars that had that classic
solid Body-By-Fisher feel that those of us who grew up in
the 60s knew so well.
These cool compacts quickly became defined as a
"plain brown wrapper" for your choice of Chevrolet engines;
and what a choice there was, more than any other car ever built.
Factory choices started with a 90 hp four cylinder,
ended with a 375 hp L-89 396 Big Block;
and in between just about every Chevy motor in production.
This is an all original and un-restored example of a
1968 Chevy II / Nova Coupe that has been in the same family
since it was originally purchased in January 1968 from
June Chevrolet in Metuchen, New Jersey.
The odometer correctly shows 38,400 original and documented miles.
Exterior: Always garage kept from day-one,
the car is equipped with its original and extremely solid floors,
body panels, trunk, firewall, etc.
with no signs of rust or other deterioration.
All body panels are "arrow" straight with uniform gaps.
The original Seafrost Green Poly finish shows incredibly well
for the years with all stainless, chrome trim
and bumpers in like new condition.
Interior: The original black vinyl interior features a bench seat
and "3 on the tree" (column) shifter for the
3-speed manual transmission.
The dash, instrument panel and trim,
steering column and wheel, seating surfaces, door panels,
headliner, carpets, rear package shelf and trunk
are in excellent condition with very
little if any indication of wear.
All lighting and instrumentation is in working condition.
An upgraded modern AM/FM digital stereo radio was added
with no modifications to the car or OEM specs
(USA-630 240 watt, with USB hookup for MP3,
and music selection,
premium original replacement dual voice coil high output front speaker
and CAM 6x9 3 way 200 watt high output rear speakers).
Engine and Driveline: The original numbers matching 230 cu. in. 140 hp In-line 6 Cylinder,
Turbo Thrift Engine is backed by the 3-speed manual Saginaw SM326 transmission.
All components are in excellent operating order
with no unusual noises, leaks or drips.
The suspension is sound and provides a solid and comfortable ride.
Wheels and Tires: Factory steel wheels and "dog dish" hubcaps are shod with
white wall bias ply tires.
