Gary R’s 1967 Nova SS

Built From The Ground Up

Gary R’s 1967 Nova SS


Despite being in the final stages of a ’63 Chevy C10 restoration, Gary decided that he wanted to do a 1967 Nova as well. He had a ’67 Biscayne 427 back in high school and it was time to have another car from that year.

His friend had a 1967 Nova back then, and he had always wanted one of his own. It only took fifty years, but Gary finally had one. This example is a real SS model, though it has the 350 small block. Gary wishes he could have found a numbers matching 327 SS model, but there were not many produced even when they were new, let alone how many are left today. Though he may eventually source an appropriate 327 to swap in at a later date.

Previous to his purchasing the Nova, it had received a complete repaint and aftermarket wheels. It had also had the interior completely redone with a new stereo system, sound deadening, a new TH700R4 to replace the original Powerglide transmission, and a Dakota Digital instrumentation system.

Convenience upgrades include a Vintage Air AC system and a serpentine belt system. A new aluminum radiator paired to electric fans keeps the Nova cool as well. Coated headers, new fuel lines, and upgraded shocks round out some of the rest of the upgrades Gary has added to the Nova. He plans on upgrading things as they come up bit by bit.
