TRUE CODE 18 SS, 327 CI, MUNCIE 4-SPEED, CODE F MARINA BLUE RESTO, CONSOLE!!
If light weight and big horsepower appeals to your sense of performance, don't miss this 1967 Chevrolet Nova, which is an ideal cruise and show vehicle that you can enjoy immediately-no tinkering, no extra work required. And yes, it is a real code 18 V8 SS. Nice!
Finished in code F Marina Blue, this handsome Nova SS boasts an arrow-straight body with incredibly crisp detailing. Fully restored just a few years ago from a solid southern car, it's still a great driver that will do you proud at the local cruise night and on the street where the neon lights flash across its slick skin. Gaps are uniform throughout, and with that relief line running from front to back it's just about impossible to hide misaligned panels. The clean Nova bodywork is a great example of GM's "less is more" philosophy in the late 1960s, and the limited trim combined with a sleek hardtop profile makes for a very subtle cruiser that speaks softly and carries a big V8 stick. Correct 'Super Sport' badges have been retained, as well as the crossed-flag '327' emblems up front, which all tie in with the SS grille. Bright trim along the rockers has been fully restored, along with the bright chrome bumpers that look great.
Originally equipped with a code FF blue interior, this SS wears correct reproduction upholstery on the vinyl buckets, complete with racy white stripe that recalled similar Camaro interiors of the period. There's a center console, too, a rare option on the bargain-priced Nova, but practically mandatory with a 4-speed. It's quite stock overall, and the restorer resisted the urge to install auxiliary gauges under the dash or a tach on the column, instead leaving it as it was back in the day, a refreshing change. And you know his priorities were in the right place, because this is a radio delete car, and as any car guy knows, that block-off plate usually means something special is going on under the hood. It appears that the chrome and trim inside are original and in good shape for being almost five decades old, but you'll be grinning too much to even notice after you turn the key. For purists, you'll find a spatter-finished trunk, correct repro mat and a full-sized spare as icing on the cake.
The fenders say 327, and that's what you'll find under the hood, fully rebuilt and dressed up in mostly factory stock livery. Complete with a Comp Cams camshaft and double-hump heads, it runs reliably on pump gas, yet makes horsepower to rival the vaunted and incredibly L79. Bright Chevy Orange paint on the block tells you that it has been rebuilt recently, and with a Winters intake and Holley 4-barrel, throttle response is instantaneous. A Muncie 4-speed and a 10-bolt highlight a highly detailed undercarriage where the suspension has been rebuilt, the floors are clean, the Flowmaster exhaust system is new, and it rolls on a set of polished Torque Thrust wheels wearing staggered 195/65/15 front and 225/60/15 rear blackwall radials.
Fast and clean, this handsome SS is a brilliant way to have fun on four wheels. And just imagine the fun of pulling this one out next spring, ready to rumble. Call today!
