For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Nova in Newfield, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

This 1967 Chevy Nova would look great no matter what you did with it, but even the original version can't compete with the amazing street machine it has become. LS1 Conversion an agile suspension, and stunning black paint all work together to create one of the cleanest, meanest Novas we've ever seen.

The minimalist shape of the Nova can be traced to its origins as an economy car, but when everything is done to show standards, it stands out as something special. The sheetmetal is so tight it appears stretched over the Nova's chassis, and the single character line that stretches from nose to tail seems to visually make the car seem longer and lower than it really is. The slick black paint is simply spectacular, with a miles-deep finish that only hours of tedious hand sanding can achieve. Good panel alignment also contributes to this car's almost intangible good looks, along with a brilliant shine that's a result of a good color sand and buff. All the original trim remains intact, but on a Nova there isn't much, just nicely finished chrome bumpers front and rear, a simple grille up front.

In some ways, the interior was restored to stock condition. There are new factory-style seat covers on the front bucket seats, the carpets and door panels are reproductions, and the shifter lives in a factory center console. Upgrades like the Dakota Dash, AM/FM/CD stereo head unit, and 6spd shifter give it a modern flair that's the essence of the Pro-Touring movement. An original steering wheel is the right choice in a vintage muscle car like this, and there's a fully functional back seat for some friends who probably won't complain about the accommodations.

Big power in a little package was the Nova SS calling card from day one, and with 350 cubic inches of LS thunder, this one carries some serious blasting powder under the hood. This isn't just some lazy truck engine, but a torque-happy street assassin that perfectly complements the Nova's compact size and agile handling. Dual electric fans and an electric water pump keep it nice and cool under any circumstances and we like the minimalist look of the engine bay. Custom sheetmetal inner fenders are made possible by a trick front suspension that includes a custom subframe and rack-and-pinion steering for great steering feel. A built t-56 6spd speed manual transmission provides an overdrive gear for easy cruising and four-wheel disc brakes were added as a precaution because that LS1 flings this little car around pretty easily. The suspension has been lowered, so it hunkers down just right over those beautiful polished Riddler wheels which wear staggered 20- and 18-inch performance radials.
