Drivers seat adjustable/fixed heim joints (per racing regulations, eat must be affixed position), point race harnesses. 12 point roll cage completely custom (not kit) installed and fully TIG welded.

EXTERIOR

Looking at the outside of this 65 you will clearly see it is not your every day grocery getter! A two tone paint job (blk/slvr) is clearly seen with the 4" cowl harwood fiberglass hood. An all aluminum spoiler is attached to the trunk which was made by Ed Quay racing to help keep the a$$ end firm when "cruising!" A new front windshield was installed and the remaining glass which is all original, s almost in pristine condition. Glass etching which states 65 nova can be noticed on the vent windows and custom etching is also on the rear window mimicking the all too common phrase said when people see the car which is "No kid'n!"

FEATURES

For anyone knowing how much can be put into cars, nd to those who have read the above ad description, ou know how much has been spent in the build of this 65 Nova. Not only do i know and recognize this but others have as well which is why this little 65 has spent a lot of time posing for cameras, ewspapers, agazines, nd tv! Thats right, v. The car was featured on an episode of Octane TV which was filmed in Worcester Mass. Multiple local papers have issued commentary by me and photos of the car in columns/articles. The nova still having flaws, as continued to bring in awards such as peoples choice, ultiple placements, est in show etc. Some of the biggest awards were showcased in one of the photos. They include a top 25 out of are 3000 entries in a national show! Repeated 1st place awards two years in a row and a Moscoffians choice award. Last year the car was also showcased in orange at the nostalgia drag reunions. If any additional photos of trophies would like to be seen, lease feel free to request and i will gladly take a photo of the dozens i have received over the years with the car!

FLAWS

Unlike many, am not a salesman and i will remain true about every inch of the car. With that being said, lease read the following: The car has brand new wiring harnesses from the front end to the rear end (firewall to lights/factory reproduction fuse panel and harness/rear taillight section). HOWEVER, fter installing all the gauges and NOT using all the factory dash wiring (heater box, ighter, actory fuel gauges, nd all bulbs etc) there is an incomplete circuit/ground issue. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN...it was causingan issue with the lights/signals/running lights. So at the bottom of the column, simply disconnected the harnesses and I hard wired my brake lights in. Lights low/high and running work. Taillight running and brake work. BUT NO TURN SIGNALS. A painless or ez wiring harness should be installed and the factory harness taken out unless someone knows more about electrical/grounding. i always used hand signals or didn't care! Also, he car was painted by me in my garage 5yrs ago. The car has always been garaged and still looks beautiful. HOWEVER, he car is a driver. There are nicks and little chips. I have kids and with that came scratches from bicycles and scooters. In addition, here is small bubbling on the pillars and in random spots all starting after this recently passed winter. BECAUSE of this, have reduced my overall asking price by are 5k$. This is knowing that if i were to keep the car, r for whoever buys it, he car should get wet sanded, ll spots fixed, nd resprayed.

INCLUDED WITH SALE OF CAR

I will supply the purchaser/buyer of the car with the entire folder of receipts for the car. Receipts ranging from Classic Components in California, o Finishmaster paint and supply, ummit and jegs, nd ALL the other misc receipts that have been collected. Receipts that clearly can be added up and seen with ones very eyes to be over 35k$ which does not include a penny of labor! My auction reserve is also well under whats been vested.

ADDED NOTE

I do NOT want trades. I will not accept test pilots. I am NOT a bank. Nor do I want to answer questions that the ad clearly answers! I am not a salesman and this is NOT a business selling the car. I have no issues with people contacting me via text, y phone, nd/or by email as i have the right to end the auction at any time if i have a buyer outside eBay.
