1967 Nova “new owner”


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, my father recently passed and I am the new owner of his pride and joy.  He drag raced Chevy II’s in the early 70’s and then started restoring Corvettes around 1980.  After a few of those (a ‘61, ‘73, and a ‘78) he decided he wanted to restore his teenage dream car.  This was the result.  It’s even the correct color combination code and all, just like he wanted as a kid.  He wanted the rallye’s on it, so it always looked like this.  He also kept a set of the original style wheels, and caps too, with Coker sticker bias tires for shows, so it would be 100% correct.  He did all the work himself, but the paint, from 1995-2000.  He only drove it 183 miles total from 2000-2018.  He just clay barred it last summer, as if it needed it.  


My brother rebuilt the carb and we put fresh gas in it.  I drove it to my place Saturday and put 13 more miles on it.  Ran like a champ.  


Here she is.
