Now THIS is how you station wagon. If Chevy had built a Nova SS wagon, well, it wouldn''t have been even half as cool as this 1967 Nova, which packs a thundering 427 cubic inch V8, all the creature comforts, and a slick leather interior. Need some speed but have gear to haul? Say no more, your car is ready. OK, I''ll admit that I have a thing for wagons, but you can''t help but love this shoebox-shaped missile. The Nova''s no-nonsense bodywork wears red paint better than most and it doesn''t seem odd to see big wheels, a lowered stance, and flashy paint on it. It''s also beautifully built, a far cry from its affordable daily driver roots, and with finish quality like this, you''ll be using it every chance you get. This was most likely a really clean car to begin with because all four doors fit well, the tailgate is in great condition, and the body lines are crisp and sharp. Still, it probably cost a small fortune to whip it into shape and with the addition of a cowl-induction hood, they really gave it a big dose of attitude. Most of the trim remains intact and with lightly tinted windows, it has a hot rod vibe that''s insanely appealing. The tan leather interior is about fifty times nicer than your folks'' wagon from your childhood. No sticky vinyl bench seats here, just supple leather buckets, custom door panels, and acres of plush carpets to make it cool and quiet inside. The painted dash areas tie the inside and outside together, and all the modern conveniences are included: tilt wheel, A/C, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo that sounds pretty darned good in the boxy little wagon. It''s been driven a bit so it''s no longer ultra-fresh, but the work was so well done that it''s holding up beautifully and the few signs of age on the leather only seems to make it look more attractive. There are custom speakers built into the sides of the cargo bay, which also has its own comfortable carpet mat and a custom tailgate cover that really gives the interior a highly polished look. It''s crazy, but somehow they shoehorned a 1969-vintage 427 cubic inch V8 under that cowl-induction hood. The big block is menacing to look at and sounds spectacular, causing total cognitive dissonance whenever you fire it up. The intake side is handled by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and intake manifold and there''s a custom serpentine belt system to manage the accessories. Heidt''s supplied a custom front crossmember for the A-arm suspension with power rack-and-pinion steering, and subframe connectors are probably a good idea with all that torque living up front. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission makes this a superlative highway cruiser that just loafs along at 75 MPH, and there''s a tough 10-bolt rear end full of 3.73 gears to make driving around town entertaining. The lowered suspension sits exactly right and with air shocks in back, you don''t have to worry about the load inside or even towing a trailer (there''s a hidden receiver hitch out back). Classic Torque Thrust style wheels with spinners are surrounded by 235/55/17 rubber that totally stuffs the fenders. Yeah, we really dig this car. It hauls in several different ways and you''ll never get tired of the astonished looks on people''s faces when they see what''s under the hood. Call today!
