GROUND THUMPING 406CI MOTOR, TH350 TRANS, 10 BOLT REAR, GREAT COLOR COMBO!
As one of the transition years between the light weight, first generation Chevy II and the bigger, heavier Nova that followed, this '67 stayed small and light like the early ones while incorporating some good-looking styling updates. The weight part is important, because when you want to go fast, physics matters. With any given engine, less weight means you can go faster. This car has got a really big engine. You can do the rest of the math. Check it out. But hang on when you do!
When you are going big, you might as well be loud and proud about it. The bright Red paint job with the big rise of that cowl induction hood leaves little doubt what this car is all about. A little more subtle, but another indication, is the rake of the chassis that you can notice as you view the car from the side. The styling updates included crisper body lines and front fenders that are canted forward a bit at the top. A new full width grill has integrated headlights and is nicely outlined in chrome trim. The big bulge in that hood is intimidating no matter what angle you view it from and racing flag emblems grace the front fenders along with Nova badges on the back. A semi-fastback roof line and rising rear fender lines look more muscular while the back of the car received a more angular look with rectangular taillights and an aluminum panel across the trunk lid with Chevy II in script.
Open the door and you will find a simple Black interior with a couple updates that are mission specific. The door panel has a pattern of horizontal lines in the vinyl with some chrome highlights. Bucket seats are both a comfortable place to cruise and also offer much needed support for when you explore that physics equation with your right foot. There is a two spoke steering wheel you will want to keep your hands firmly wrapped around and a stock dash with a couple gauges added underneath to keep accurate tabs on engine water temp and oil pressure. An AM/FM/Cassette player is there for your listening pleasure, and the T-handle shifter for the automatic transmission rises out of a sharp looking center console with an SS badge at the front. If you head for the track or decide to do some traveling in this car, there is plenty of room in the trunk for coolers and chairs and luggage.
Pop that hood and you will find a 406 cubic inch powerhouse nestled down in the neat and clean engine bay of this little car. The motor tucks back into the firewall a bit so the chrome air filter housing is quite close to the firewall, directly underneath the cowl gathering up lots of fresh air. A Holley 4-barrel carb handles the mixing duties and sends it through an Edelbrock high rise intake and Edelbrock aluminum heads. Long tube headers wind their way out to a dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers and it should come as no surprise that this car has quite a rumble to it. Power is sent back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to a 10-bolt posi rear end with 3.73 gears. Fresh brake lines and suspension components assure that you are able to keep things pointed in the right direction and hauled back down from speed, and the rubber meets the road through 225/60R15 tires on the rear and 165R15s on the front, all mounted on 5-spoke Weld wheels.
Good looking with the styling updates and the light weight of the '67s matched up with a beast of a motor. The perfect formula for performance. Come on down and check it out.
