1967 Chevrolet Nova Station Wagon
The first station wagons were built around 1910 by independent manufacturers producing wooden custom bodies for the Ford Model T chassis. They were originally called “depot hacks” because they worked around train depots as hacks, (short for hackney carriage, as taxi cabs were then known).
For consignment, a 1967 Chevrolet Nova station wagon which has been treated to some modernizationbringing it up to Pro-Touring standards. A powerful6.0 LS engine,5-speed manual transmission, Church Boys suspension and painstaking attention to detail throughout makefor one seriously badass and super clean hauler. Approximately500-600 miles have been logged since the completion of the build, so gather up your friends…it’s time for a throwback road trip in an updated long roof!
Jeez, where do I start…I could just say it’s all great, and be scary as to my accuracy, but I digress…a shiny chrome egg crate grille with single headlights flanking either side, all surrounded by beautiful trim work, and held up by a very clean bumper with no faults in the chrome. A steel cowl induction style hood makes its way back to near flawless glass surrounded by polished trim. Covering the expansive passenger compartment is the highlight in this writer’s opinion…the elusive longus roofus, which is held in place by a full greenhouse of lightly smoked glass allowing your passengers to watch the scenery streak by, albeit at a very fast pace. Near flawless steel panels make up the slabbed sides, and they align just perfectly, and are spattered with newly plated polished handles, mirrors, but to give a more sleek look all badging save for the Chevy II on the rear fenders have been removed. Bringing up the rear is a clean steel tailgate with a crank down window which also opens to allow room for your road trip gear. Flanking the rear gate area are chrome trimmed tail lights, with a bumper below, all polished to factory looks and to the bottom right is a small LSX emblem to let the competition know what powers this ride. The paint is stunning on this car and is the deep end of the pool red and has been applied, buffed and waxed to perfection. Black 5 spoke with polished lip Weld wheels are on in 17″ a format and are shod in 205/50R17 and 265/45R17 like new rubber front and rear. Just flawless!
All newly upholstered seats, new carpet, and a new steering wheel all dressed in red vinyl, and a chrome emblem installed in each seat back…oh and add more chrome on the doors to be even more matchey and cool! Between the stylish buckets is a red leather booted shifter mounted within a red leather covered console with a Holley Terminator X controller front and center where the console meets the dash. The factory gauges have been replaced by a Holley dash display that provides a multitude of engine read-outs and is fronted by a tilt steering column and a rally style red leather wrapped Billet Specialtiessteering wheel with a mixture of brushed aluminum and black in the spokes. Dash central holds the factory heater slides that nowcontrol a Vintage Air heating and cooling unit and above is a textured black radio delete panel. There’s something to be said about the ease of entry with a 4 door and we can easily access the factory back seat which is just as nice as the front buckets. As mentioned, new red carpeting floods the floors and a red ribbed vinyl headliner hangs tightly above. Moving to the way back, more clean red carpeting highlights the red vinyl side panels and we can see that the rear bench seat is foldable for extra hauling room. Very clean and all first class.
6.0 Liters in LS form of a tire shredding V8 are happily mounted in a pristine engine compartment home. This mill has been built to the hilt and is fresh with a new B&R camshaft making a very capable 500 consignor-stated ponies. To help make those numbers, a Holley Terminator X EFI system with all new Holley wiring is on to feed copious amounts of air and fuel to the mill. A Tremec 5-speed manual transmission with a heavy duty clutch is bolted to the back and power flows back to a Fab 9 aluminum center section 35 spline Ford 9″ axle weighing in with a 3.70 ratio (say that 3 times fast). Total visual eye candy under the hood, even down to the heavy duty aluminum radiator and clean black inner fenders.
Starting at the rear we see a custom modified EFI fuel tank and just ahead is the leaf spring rear suspension with adjustable shocks and Wilwood rear disc brakes. Moving forward we see welded in subframe connectors, stainless steel brake lines and braided lines for the fuel. Up front is a Church Boys independent coil over front suspension with more Wilwood disc brakes. Stainless steel headers snake down from the engine and a fully tig welded stainless steel exhaust system is on which ends just behind the rear tires. Black solid steel abounds for the unibody and flooring as well as the rockers…Amen!
So we piled in and took her for a spin and its raring to go on another road trip. Good smooth acceleration, smooth shifting from the Tremec, and solid bias free braking. All functions were working with the exception of the AC which requires a new line and charge to be functional (the line is included with the purchase), and it is great driver with a very modern feel.
I remember going on road trips as a kid and my sister and I would fight for who would get to sit in the way back and give the arm pump to truckers whoshared the highway. We’d pull over and mom and dad would have sandwiches for us and dad would pop the hood to cool her down, (this was a 60’s thing). Good times are to be had with this once mundane family hauler, all ready and waiting in the North Mallway of our Hallowed Halls.
