Talk about classic American muscle! This 1969 Burgundy Red Chevy Nova SS is a perfect example of a gorgeous oldschool muscle car, restored & upgraded with a set of Forgestar F14 wheels, giving it that perfect modern touch.
For those unfamiliar with oldschool American muscle, this Chevy Nova is a third-generation vehicle of the same model family. This Chevy Nova was produced from 1968 to 1972, delivering one of the most notable cars of the period. This particular vehicle, a Nova Super Sport, is a vehicle that was transformed from a trim option to a performance package for 1968 model range.
It was one of the smallest muscle cars ever fielded by Detroit, featuring a 5.7 liter V8 engine, delivering 295 horsepower as the base engine offering. However, the vehicle could also be ordered with a big-block 6.5 liter V8 engine delivering 375 horsepower and 415lb-ft (563Nm) of torque. Both engine options could be coupled with a M-21 close-ratio four-speed manual, the heavy-duty M-22 “Rock Crusher” four-speed manual, or the three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. The vehicle also featured optional disc brakes in the front and it quickly became one of the best-selling muscle cars for the period, becoming what some consider an instant classic for die-hard car nuts.
Overall, the vehicle is cherished by everyone. It’s a nimble beast, which, when packed with some premium modern upgrades, can be a beast both on and off the drag strip. In turn, it’s no wonder that some of Chevy Nova SS owners turn to us for a set of aftermarket wheels, perfectly accentuating this vehicle. For this build, the Forgestar F14 wheels are sized 18×9.5 in the front and 19×12 in the rear. The wheels feature a Gloss Anthracite finish. Add the gorgeous Burgundy Red exterior finish and you’ve got yourself a perfect looking American muscle car build.
