Chevrolet Nova

  • Year: 1967
  • Make: Chevrolet
  • Model: Nova

This 1967 Chevy Nova is a sinister looking street machine that has just a few thousand miles since the build was completed. It was a feature car in the Super Chevy "Nova Annual" edition which highlighted its awesome performance and quality build characteristics.

Powering the Nova is a wicked 406 small block with a Gallies crank, Howards Rods, SRP pistons and a Comp Cam. Managing the fuel and air is a Barry Grant 850 Demon carb and providing a wicked spark is an MSD distributor and 6AL box. The motor exhales through a set of Sanderson exhaust manifolds and a custom-built 3-inch exhaust with Dynomax mufflers. Cooling down the motor is a trick Be Cool Radiator with Dual fans as well as a Be Cool oil cooler. The Chevy puts out nearly 500 HP and is very responsive. It’s also a rocket out of the hole and a ton ton of fun to cruise!

The body on the Nova is a wonderfully straight and was stripped down to bare metal before it received its new base/clear paint job. The paint has been freed from the bonds of orange peel via a thorough wetsanding and then polished to perfection. The chrome is new and the trim is polished out and the original stainless the fits as it should. The Chevy II has all OEM panels with the exception of the cowl hood and is has excellent panel fitment.

The transmission is a 700 R4 with 3 forward gears and an overdrive gear. It might seem tame, but the 2,800 stall helps launch the car pretty aggressively. The rear end is a trick Ford 9" with Trac-Lock 3.50 gears, and Strange 31 Spline axles. The grip off the line is just right and the car track nice and even while laying down the rubber.

The rear suspension consists of Global West multi-spring set up with a 3" drop combined with calipers and rotors from Strange. The front suspension is a Fat Man independent front suspension. With the Fat Man set up, the Nova gained disc brakes, power rack and pinion and an adjustable coil over setup that handles so much better than the factory Nova stuff ever did.

If you are looking for a mean cruiser that has the ability to get downright wicked, this little Nova is big on power and handles like a charm.
