This one of a kind 1965 Nova Sedan Pro-Street is a multiple award winning eye-catcher that always draws a crowd whether cruising the city streets or on display at a cruise-in or car show. This car was built by the owner of over 15 years, except for the interior, engine, and transmission. Note that this masterpiece is a true sedan with a small rear window and large C-post, not a standard coupe. Not many sedans around!

Highlights:

Exterior
Countless hundreds of hours were spent stripping the body and treating it to a full rotisserie restoration, producing razor straight body gaps and lines throughout. The fresh PPG Plum Purple two-stage paint is mixed with different pearlescent pigments was applied to all surfaces while apart to ensure show quality coverage. That ultra-smooth look is attributed to wipers, cowl, door handles, locks, and all holes welded and filled set off by the two inch steel cowl hood. Front sheet metal of the Nova is '63 and '64 and the rear is '65. All stainless brite work was straightened and polished; bumpers and glass all around are NEW except for the rear windshield, resulting in an outstanding show condition.

Interior
The luxurious interior features Cream and Tan leather. The custom dash was completely reworked to house a full complement of Auto Meter white face Full Sweep Electric gauges, including speedometer and tachometer and Dakota Digital Air Ride readout. Except for the ignition and headlight switch, gone are the glove box, radio, ash tray and those finicky factory push and pull knobs. Mercedes carpet with custom mats. Custom Suede headliner. Steering is compliments of a 32-inch Flaming River column and billet leather covered steering wheel. B/M Bandit shifter. All windows, doors, and airbags are remotely operated along with manual inside door handles. An under-dash 21-circuit E-Z Wire harness handles the electrics and wiring and chores. If you're looking for music, roll the windows down and take in the cool exhaust notes from the 2.5" stainless steel exhaust system and those polished Borlas!
