1967 Chevrolet Nova SS Additional Info:

The Chevy Nova (aka the Chevy II) was a great example of less being more, and this 1967 Chevrolet Nova SS shows you that these are some pretty nice cars even when they're not stuffed with big blocks and ridiculously wide tires. It's a real-deal code 18 V8 SS (originally a 327/275HP and 4-barrel car) with some nice upgrades to create a wonderful car that's still a blast to drive.
With a big 'ol pile of cash invested in the restoration, you can expect a pretty nice car. The bodywork alone is probably even better than what the factory could manage on an assembly line, with nice gaps and good fit and finish that emphasize the Nova's clean, straight lines. It was finished a few years ago, so it's not flawless and 100% fresh, but you can easily see that they created an ideal surface below that handsome and correct code F Marina Blue paint and that it's been properly maintained ever since. In fact, it's a very consistent, top driver-quality finish that should easily bring home several trophies at the local car show. Keeping a low profile was vital to the Nova's street cred, so the classic and understated color lets the hardware underneath do all the talking. Even the 'SS' badges are somewhat subtle, leading many to speculate that GM engineers were sneaking these cars out the door without widespread approval from the brass. Whatever the story, this car is most definitely a wolf in sheep's clothing with that strong-running 327 under the hood. The front and rear bumpers are new, and the rest of the chrome and brightwork is great shape as well, providing a nice contrast to the vivid blue paint.
Stock with a few clean updates is the way to go with a car of this caliber, and the builders did a great job pulling this interior off. That means correct blue bucket seats with white stripes, trim door panels that match the color combination, and a no-nonsense look that simply gets the job done. In truth, not many production cars of this era looked better inside than the Nova, and the attention to detail is so good that you'll note even the seams between the upper and lower cushions on the seats are neatly aligned. Stock gauges are still getting the job done and cover all the vitals, and the upgraded R134a A/C system blows cold and hard through the vents under the dash and the stock set at the flanks. There's also a wood-rimmed 3-spoke steering wheel that feels great in your hands, and the power steering system makes it that much more comfortable. And the result of all those clean components is stock look that's clean and not over-done. A T-handle shifter inside the SS center console manages the 4-speed automatic below and there's a modern JVC AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo in the center of the dash that pumps tunes through speakers in the kick panels and Spark-O-Matic speakers in the package tray. There's a spacious back seat, making this a car that can be used as real transportation and the trunk is finished with a plaid mat and a full-sized spare tire covered in the same.
Responsive and ready to go on demand, the 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood packs some serious small-block firepower. There's plenty of peppy horsepower on tap yet it's happy to trundle through traffic without complaint and has a fat bottom end that makes it the ideal street sleeper. Stock-style heads, a 4-barrel carburetor on a performance intake, and a chrome serpentine system all help build power and it's all properly tuned to make this 327 absolutely sing. It's nicely detailed, of course, with Chevy Orange paint on the block, a beautifully painted firewall and inner fenders, a chrome open-element air cleaner, and finned valve covers to dress it up. The bottom of the car is original but in great shape, showing a Flowmaster dual exhaust system, 700R4 4-speed automatic, a 12-bolt rear end, along with newer shocks, bushings, and CPP upper/lower controls arms. Front disc brakes and an electric-assist power steering system are a welcome addition to the roster and it sits on a set of 17-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels with performance blackwall radials that finish the look.
One of the most under-rated cars of the era, this Nova will surprise a lot of cars and is a genuine pleasure to drive. This dialed-in restoration kicked this muscle car up a notch and you'll be proud to call this one your own. Call today!
