Its no secret; these once little abundant rockets are now becoming more scarce than their bigger brother and sister cars. Throughout the years of drag racing and heavy street modifications, these once mighty mouses are now far and few between.
This little Burnt Orange Nova is absolutely gorgeous! It is fresh out of our paint shop and sitting pretty. The roller rockers have been readjusted and tuned up to put you back in the seat quickly. She will run or cruise to your nearest show, cruise in, or taking the better half for a night out on the town. There is not enough "thumbs up" in the world when you cruise in traffic in this little Deuce.
The car houses a Holley Dual Feed Carb, Hooker headers, MSD ignition upgrade, power brakes, Weld Wheels, Dual Exhaust, Aluminum Intake, BeCool Aluminum Radiator with polished fan shroud, new style gauge dash and underneath looks newer than the day it rolled off the line. What a great car!

Sleepers are some of our favorite cars here at RK Motors Charlotte because
they represent ingenuity and craftsmanship designed to put big horsepower in an anonymous
package. For your consideration, we submit this very clean 1966 Chevy Nova
SS hardtop in period-correct turquoise paint, which is powered by a blown
L82 small block under the hood. Is it fast? What do you think?
Actually, the color is code FF Marina Blue, and it's exactly the last color
that you'd expect to eat your lunch at the stop light grand prix. Whose
grandmother didn't have a car that looked just like this? That's the
secret, of course, and your eyes glance over this car but don't linger,
which is just how the sleeper likes it. The handsome lines of the Nova were
typical '60s conservative, and just because they've become popular doesn't
mean they're any more noticeable today than they were forty-five years ago.
Panel gaps are good, but not too good, and the finish is nice, but not too
nice. There's much more to keeping a low profile than factory colors and a
nondescript body style.
The big investment was made on this car is all under the skin. The engine
is a 350 cubic inch L82 small block with four-bolt mains for durability and
a set of reworked aluminum heads to save weight. The dominant feature under
the hood, however, is the massive Vortech Supercharger perched up high and force-feeding the
engine up to 5 pounds of Boost.
Combined with 8.5:1 compression, it makes for a ferocious street piece
that's quick under all circumstances. You'll find yourself riding a wave of
supercharged torque that feels endless, and it hurls the lightweight car
forward like a catapult on the USS Nimitz. The engine bay is clean and tidy
like the rest of the car, with a minimum of flash. Sure, there are some
cool black valve covers with red Chevrolet emblems, and some aircraft
quality lines feeding the fuel system, but otherwise the investment is all
in the hardware, making this one quick, nasty little Nova.
This is also an original 4-speed car, and it still carries a freshly
rebuilt Muncie M20 behind the engine. In back, it has been upgraded with a
bulletproof 12-bolt full of 4.10 gears on a Posi limited slip, which surely
deserve some of the credit for this car's astounding acceleration. The
chassis is extremely clean, and the work is only two years old, so there
are few signs of road use since it was completed. The front suspension
components have been powder coated for long-term durability and the entire
fuel system has been rebuilt from front to back, including a return line to
accommodate the Supercharger's varying
fuel needs. Up front there are disc brakes to ensure that it stops as well
as it goes, and it rolls on a set of handsome Rally wheels. Finishing off
the sleeper look are a set of redline radials which look vintage but grip
like modern tires, giving you another advantage.
According to the cowl tag, this was also an original bucket seat car, and
it has been fully restored in correct code 737 bright blue. Stock condition
means no raised eyebrows from competitors, but it also means this car is
nicely finished with no questionable modifications. In fact, the only
changes to the interior are a set of auxiliary gauges hanging under the
dash, including one for keeping an eye on the Supercharger's Boost. The seat covers, door panels,
headliner, and dash pad are all new and look fantastic in the Marina Blue
coupe. There's also a factory-issued center console housing the shifter for
the 4-speed manual underneath, and the original AM radio with rear speaker
remains in the dash.
How cool is it to have a restored Nova SS packing a big horsepower supercharged
engine that remains completely invisible most of the time? The workmanship
throughout this car is excellent, and you can show it with pride just about
anywhere. Nova fans will appreciate its basic goodness, but you'll have to
decide each time you show it whether to give away its secrets. If that's
your idea of a good time, we have your car. Call today!

CUSTOM CHEVY NOVA with a HUGE V8 cruisin' by ...
Classic Chevy Nova with a huge engine cruisin' by at Cruisin' Grand.
Controversial rear end customizing with the removal of the stock tail
lights and addition of tail lights in the bumper. Purists don't care for
it, others don't care one way or the other, but all have to admit that this
Nova is awesome. Subscribe, comment, like & share.
1967 Chevy Nova SS, Concours Restoration, Numbers Matching, For Sale!!
1967 Chevy Nova SS, Concours Restoration, Numbers Matching, For Sale!!
We are pleased to sell the spectacular, no expense spared restoration of a
rust free California car. This is a numbers matching, fully restored Nova
SS in the original colors and configuration but with the finest performance
and convenience upgrades money can buy, such as: Hot Rod air conditioning,
Heidt's front end, power front disc brakes, tilt wheel, CD stereo, etc.
This is a nearly 100 point restoration as you can see by the detailed
photos. This is absolutely a no-excuses motorcar.
A restoration to this level would normally cost in excess of $100,000. The
restoration shop was MB Services in Murrieta, CA. The restorers there are
professionals we have used on our personal cars over the years, including
preparation of several cars we have shown at the Pebble Beach Concours.
The restoration was completed a few years ago and it only has a few hundred
miles since completion; basically to take it to a couple local shows. It
drives beautifully and is fully sorted. The paint has seven coats of
primer, all carefully and beautifully wet sanded for a fabulous base for
the paint. The interior is an exact reproduction of the original interior
that was on the car before restoration. And it looks stunning!!
This car has the original 327 cu in V8 that has been upgraded to
approximately 360 hp. The transmission has been upgraded to a turbo 400 and the wheels are the classic American
Racing wheels- a great choice for this Nova SS. There is not a nut or bolt
that has not been restored or replaced on this car.
The 1967 Chevy 327 Nova SS's are pretty rare and almost never bought up to
this level of restoration. If you are looking for a top quality, concours
restoration of a fully documented car, this may be your car.

This 1967 Chevrolet Nova is a stare producing machine that wraps a custom
interior and a modern drivetrain in one of the straightest and most
impressive bodies in our RK Motors Charlotte showroom. This Nova is a take
no prisoners build that benefitted from a full frame up build in 2008. Once
the exceptionally straight body panels were properly aligned and prepped,
the car was covered in Nissan code CV0 Sand Dune basecoat/clearcoat paint.
Keeping the car firmly planted to the pavement is a great looking set of 17
inch Billet Specialties Fast Lane polished aluminum wheels with 225/45
front and 245/45 rear Bridgestone Potenza G009s. The smoothed engine bay
houses a Generation II LT1 Corvette motor utilizes a cast iron block,
aluminum heads, 4 bolt mains, batch-fire fuel injection and speed density
fuel management to provide an even 300 horsepower and an even
better 340 lb./ft. of torque. Underneath the car you'll find: a 4L60E
4-speed automatic transmission, a GM 10 bolt posi-traction rear end that
houses unbreakable 3.73 Richmond gears, front end braces, a modified sub
frame, tubular upper and lower control arms, GM power disc brakes, rear
mono leaf springs, rear QA1 gas shocks and a true dual Exhaust system that is complete with an H-pipe,
turbo mufflers and turn downs located
just behind the rear wheels. Inside this Nova you'll find a completely
custom Paul Atkins leather upholstery that includes maroon leather seats, a
custom body matched dash, Classic Instruments gauges, a direct fit AM/FM
radio, a Vintage Air air conditioning system, a custom console, a Lokar
shifter, custom door panels and a body matched tilt steering column that
holds a GM Rallye wheel. If you're looking for a car that is perfect cruise
night eye candy and has performance to back up its good looks, this Chevy
II belongs in your driveway.
Chevy Nova '66 Test run...
Rolf got himself a testrun in Wayne's nice 1966 Nova, at SATA in Spring
Valley, Minnesota on a nice summer day in '07:-)
1967 Chevrolet Nova SS
One nice little 327 4 speed car with a nasty little grunt. I remember
seeing those tailights around my neigborhood many years ago. Like when the
Prez was Jimmy Carter. The paint is more beautiful than in the video. It
looks brand new. That's a BB Chevelle you hear first, which over runs the
327 sound. Taken 14 October 2011 at Abindgon Lowe's.
