1967 Chevrolet Nova SS
1967 Chevrolet Nova SS
The 1960's Chevy II/Nova was one of Chevrolet's best selling models and was sold as a compact car. It didn't take General Motors long to realize they could put some of their bigger engines in these cars and people would buy them for performance as well. Hence a Nova ad that states, “The Sleeper Awakes.”
Dignifying our showroom space here at Classic Auto Mall is this Nova SS stunner. I say this because one look at the fit, finish, and paint on this car and you will not be able to restrain yourself from being impressed. With almost everything either rebuilt or replaced, a certainly assured job well done, very few faults, definitely a show car. However you do not need to be afraid of taking it out on the weekends and blowing out some of the carbon buildup as dad used to say!
Gosh where do I start…I could just say it's all great, and be scary as to my accuracy, but I digress…a shiny egg crate grille with single headlights flanking either side, all surrounded by beautiful trim work, and held up by a gleaming bumper with no faults in the chrome. An original hood perfectly makes its way back to factory glass surrounded by plated and polished trim. Straight steel panels make up the slabbed sides, but they align just perfectly, and are spattered with brightly plated polished handles, mirrors, and badging. Bringing up the rear is a straight as an arrow trunk lid, and rear trimmed taillights, with a bumper below, all polished to factory looks. Paint is stunning on this car and is Tuxedo Black. A combination of 14 and 15" rally wheels and Kumho blackwall tires are affixed to all corners.
A factory console, newly upholstered seats, door panels, and new carpet, all dressed in red vinyl, and a white stripe added to each seat running right up the middle…oh and add a vertical stripe on the doors to be even more matchey and cool! Between the stylish buckets is a factory console topped with a brushed aluminum panel and the chrome shifter is well within the driver's reach. The factory gauges are fronted by a column mounted tachometer and the correct red plastic 3 spoke steering wheel with a mixture of brushed aluminum and chrome in the spokes. A modern AM/FM stereo is mounted nicely in the center of the dash while just below are the heater controls. As mentioned, new red carpeting floods the floors and a red vinyl headliner hangs above with just a touch of wrinkling at the one edge…all first class.
327 cubes in the form of a healthy V8 are happily mounted in a pristine engine compartment home. This mill has been totally rebuilt with double hump heads and a mild cam. According to the stamping code this is a 275hp ZA coded mill and based on the dates could be the original engine to the car. The 1967 dated 4-speed Muncie M20 is strapped to the rear of the mill, and a Holley 600cfm 4-barrel carburetor is atop and works in conjunction with an Edelbrock intake. Power flows back to a 12-bolt consignor stated 3.73 geared posi rear. Total visual eye candy under the hood, just clean as a whistle.
When one states every nut and bolt was taken off this car for the restoration, you would expect to see what is under this car...nothing but clean, mechanically perfect, straight, shiny compilation of parts working together as they should…amen! Crisp clean floor pans and unibody rails are held much more firmly by CPP subframe connectors, all in black and all rust free. Independent coil spring front suspension with Church Boys lower control arms and power disc brakes are on the front while leaf springs, CPP traction bars and power drums bring up the rear. A shiny Flowmaster exhaust system accepts spent gasses from the headers and dumps out just behind the rear tires.
A quick fire up and warmup and off to the test track. I felt like a superstar behind this wheel in this excellent interior. On track I experienced smooth acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and nice tight cornering. All fun actions were working at this time.
Well restored, well upgraded in the engine department, and nicely done interior, we have a runner, and a gunner. If you are looking for a smaller muscle car classic this one is truly a wild deuce in its true SS form. This will be the toughest block on your block. Deport your import and snap this one up, it won't be here long.
