For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Nova in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1967 Chevrolet Nova

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 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. The result of a 3 year long build with all handcrafted metalwork the car was restored to appear factory correct but with an old school hotrod look. A monster supercharged big block V8, state of the art electronics, custom exhaust, factory "SS" style interior, and more custom fabrication work than you can soak in with your eyes all work together to bring you this upcoming magazine feature and multiple show winner. A certainly assured job well done, definitely a show car, however you do not need to be afraid of taking it out on the weekends and blow out of some the carbon buildup as dad used to say!

Exterior
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 chrome egg crate grille with single headlights flanking either side, all surrounded by beautiful trim work, and held up by an original re-plated bumper with no faults in the chrome. A hoodless front end giving the whole world a view of what you're packing makes its way back to near flawless glass surrounded by re-plated and polished trim. Some new handcrafted panels make up the slabbed sides, but they align just perfectly, and are spattered with newly plated polished handles, mirrors, but to give a more sleek look all badging has been removed. Bringing up the rear is a straight as an arrow trunk lid, and rear chrome trimmed taillights, with a bumper below, all re-plated and polished to factory looks. Paint is stunning on this car and is the deep end of the pool Silver and has been applied, buffed and waxed to perfection. RC Comp Exile wheels are on in 17" and 15" format and are shod in 26x6.00R17 and 275/60R15 Mickey Thompson rubber front and rear. Just flawless!

Interior
All newly upholstered seats, new carpet, rebuilt instruments, and a new steering wheel all dressed in black 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 Hurst Quarter Stick shifter mounted atop a black pedestal and well within the driver's reach. The factory gauges are fronted by a column mounted tachometer and the correct black plastic 3 spoke steering wheel with a mixture of brushed aluminum and chrome in the spokes. A carbon fiber switch panel is mounted nicely in the center of the dash while just below are the heater controls. No Pro-Street here, the factory back seat has been retained although it requires vigorous yoga lessons to navigate your way in and out. As mentioned, new black carpeting floods the floors and a black vinyl headliner hangs above with just nary a touch of wrinkling. A silver painted roll cage provides protection for the passengers in case things should go awry, this cage includes a main hoop, front, side and door down bars, a dash bar and added roof cross bracing...all first class....

Drivetrain
496 cubes in the form of a tire shredding V8 are happily mounted in a pristine engine compartment home. This mill has been built to the hilt by Lorenzo's Fast Flow Cylinder Heads Inc and thanks in part to the Mahle race pistons, H-beam rods. Comp solid roller camshaft (.758 lift, 260i/266e duration), Liberty 320cc aluminum cylinder heads that have been bowl blended, a monsterous supercharger, and bullet 9 way timing set makes a near unheard of 950hp. To help make those numbers, dual Holley 4bbl carburetors are on to feed copious amounts of air and fuel to the mill. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is bolted to the back and power flows back to a Ford 9" axle weighing in with a 4.11 ratio. Total visual eye candy under the hood, even down to the chrome plated motor plate and the added structural front support bars.

Undercarriage
When one states every nut and bolt was taken off this car for the restification, 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. Starting at the rear we see a custom modified factory fuel tank and just ahead is the ladder bar rear suspension with adjustable coil overs and Wilwood rear disc brakes. Moving forward we see welded in subframe connectors, stainless steel brake lines and braided lines for the fuel. Up front is a Heidts Mustang II style front suspension with more Wilwood disc brakes. Custom built headers snake down from the engine and a dual Flowmaster exhaust system with upstream TotalFlow race bullet mufflers help to quiet the roar of the mighty big block before ending in turn down tips just in front of the rear axle. Amen!

Drive-Ability
Following the wishes of our consignor we didn't start or drive the car. However, he was kind enough to come in and give us a quick thrill ride. From the passenger's seat we experienced blazingly fast acceleration, wonderful bias free braking and unexpectedly good handling. All functions were working during our drive and upon arrival back to our Hallowed Halls I had to send my partner in crime to the local Walmart to grab me a fresh pair of tighty whities as mine had taken on a brown hue.

This car is a real highlighter here, and rightfully so. All the attention to detail, restified and retaining the factory lines while holding within a gaggle of custom upgrades and all the while running like a clock. This will be the toughest Bowtie on your block. Deport your import and snap this one up, it won't be here long.
