1967 Chevrolet Nova

1967 Chevy NovaThe 1967 Chevrolet Nova has its roots in the 1962 Chevy II. The original model was called the Chevy II, but the top trim lines and sportier versions got to wear the Nova nameplate. By 1968, the name Chevy II was totally out, and Nova was in. The Nova/Chevy II cars essentially rescued Chevrolet’s entry in the compact car market. Previously, the Corvair held that place in the Chevrolet brand, but it had an odd style and consumers had safety concerns.

Part of the second generation, the 1967 Chevrolet Nova was one fine example of the successful Nova brand. The 1966 model was the first of the generation and received significant changes. For the redesign, the Nova got a more squared appearance with sharper edges. The grille got a bold new look, and the back end of the car became a semi-fastback. The 1967 Chevrolet Nova needed no more than a handful of minor alterations after the major redesign.

1967 Chevy Nova For the 1967 Chevrolet Nova, the bottom trim level was still called the Chevy II. Next up on the rung was the Chevy II Nova. Body styles available included two- and four-door sedans, a two-door hardtop, and a station wagon. One significant change for the second entry in the second generation was improvements in safety features, including safer steering wheels and columns, and softer interior elements.

Perhaps the favorite 1967 Chevrolet Nova among consumers was the Super Sport, or SS. With the SS package, buyers could turn a reliable compact car into a true muscle car. The sport coupe Nova SS was the top of the line model and included both cosmetic and performance elements. For the 1967 Chevrolet Nova, over 10,000 produced were the SS model. Among those, over 8,000 of the buyers chose to pay even more to get one of Chevy’s powerful V8 engines. All of the classic Novas are collectible today, but the SS models are especially desirable to collectors and lovers of muscle cars.

  3. Heya great blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a large amount of work?
    I have virtually no understanding of coding
    however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the
    near future. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations
    or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I simply needed to ask.

    Thanks!
