This 1967 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova wagon is one of the most
interesting cars we have ever seen. Highly documented and
meticulously restored to factory standards on the exterior and in
the engine bay. But inside is a fully customized A/C interior.
This was the final year for the Chevy II wagon, and someone set it off with a very handsome tribute. The car came from California, and the black plates even come with the sale. The original Butternut Yellow was resprayed with a very professional hand so you get a show quality shine. The car was disassembled before the painting, so all four doors shut with confidence and line up with the sheetmetal crease that runs the full length of this shoebox wagon. Even the tailgate received plenty of attention to erase any evidence of when it was sat on for picnics and football games. These Chevy IIs did not have excessive brightwork, so ever piece really counts. That's why this one comes with all the correct badging, the trim looks fantastic, and the grille has been restore so it flawlessly extends through the headlights. The largest items of chrome, the bumpers, were even re-dipped so they can shine like mirrors. For a little additional flare, larger than factory Rally wheels were added for a subtle aggressive touch that doesn't interfere with this Chevy's stock appearance.
What definitely isn't stock is the interior. This was the personal car of a man who builds hot rod interiors for a living, so you already understand the level of craftsmanship before you even check out the details. Chevy II wagons usually had two rows of vinyl benches. Instead, this one has resculpted/recovered bucket seats up front and three-person sculpted seating in the rear. All of it is covered in butter-smooth leather. The tan and chrome theme on the seats is repeated on the custom door panels, headliner, and cargo/tailgate area. We know you've spotted the one-of-a-kind center console. Not only does it make trips exceptionally more comfortable with the armrest and cup holders, but it also has the controls for the modern R-134a air conditioning. While this is an expensive custom build, we really do like how it keeps its vintage style with the factory steering wheel, gauges, and AM radio.
Under the hood it feels like it's 1967. The inline-six motor is a cool tribute to the budget-minded origins of the Chevy II, but as you can see, there is nothing cheap about this restoration. The painted black engine bay, the factory-style air cleaner, the Chevy orange on the whole motor, and even the correct stickers - rarely do you see a car at this exceptional level. Also check out the undercarriage shots so you know how clean this wagon is from grille to tailgate. But as pristine as it looks, this was absolutely made for driving. The six cylinder fires right up like a good workhorse should, and it can pull around the little wagon with ease. Helping make this a true driver's custom are features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
Complete with plenty of documentation, including the original Protect-o-Plate, title docs, and owner's manual, this Chevy II is already an award-winner, and you understand exactly why. It has all the right features to be a comfortable for everyone and plenty of space in the back for more trophies. You'll never see another one like this. Call today!!!
