Sleeper cars can be loads of fun, especially for the driver. Few other sleepers from the 1960s are as unassuming as a Chevy II, with its bolt-upright styling, generous glass area, trim size and light weight. The consignor on this Nova purchased for her husband that had his fun
Made in General Motors\' Willow Run, Michigan factory (code W), during the fourth week of October 1966. It left the assembly line with the following options Fawn cloth trim (code 773), tinted windshield (code W), pushbutton AM radio, heavy-duty battery and more. This example was delivered to Wood Motor Company in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and it was originally sold on November 8, 1966, to an Alfred L. of Eau Claire after he traded in a 1956 Ford. The second owner purchased the car in 2017.
Dressed in Granada Gold (code G), the paint and trim are in overall very good order. The bodywork is straight and sold, the chrome bumpers are fixed tightly to the body, the engine bay is tidy, as is the cargo area with full-sized spare tire and wheel plus a jack. Nineteen sixty-seven was also the final model year for front side vent windows. The header collector tube had some vibration where it hits the lower frame rail.
This Chevy II rolls on Kelly Charger GT radials in front, size 205/60R15 and Primewell radials, size 215/65R15 in back. Each one is mounted to a factory Turbine-style alloy wheel. The wheels are in overall very good order, while the tires are in good shape.
Under the counterbalanced hood is a crate 350 CID V-8 engine with a modified camshaft breathing via aftermarket exhausts. The exhausts pack quite a snarl and are the first clue this car is anything but mild-mannered. This engine has no extra accessories no air-conditioning, no power steering and no power brakes. An electrically-operated cooling fan takes the place of an engine-driven fan. This motor is backed by a Turbo Hydramatic 350 three-speed automatic transmission. Tach and Temp gauge in inop.
Inside, the Fawn vinyl bench seats (code 773) are in overall great shape with the driver\'s side seat bottom showing some minor blemishes. The contrasting carpet and matching headliner look great and the dome light is still operational. The original three-spoke steering wheel shows evidence of use, while Fawn-colored metal dashboard (code 5) and matching vinyl door panels look great. There are also aftermarket oil and coolant gauges beneath the dashboard. A B&M floor-mounted shifter and factory AM radio round out the interior.
The 1967 models received nothing more than a touch-up after a restyling for 1966. All Novas got a crosshatch pattern that filled the deck lid trim panel. The Nova officially was still called the Chevy II Nova and had overtaken the bottom-rung Chevy II 100 in sales. The Chevy II 100 lacked much in the way of trim or brightwork. 1967 models carried significant improvements in safety equipment - a government-mandated, energy-absorbing steering column and safety steering wheel, soft interior parts such as armrests and sun visors, recessed instrument panel knobs, front seat belt anchors and dual brake master cylinders, were included in all 1967 models.
Documentation includes the original owner\'s manual, the original window sticker and original car invoice.
Competition to this Chevy II in 1967 included American Motors\' Rambler, Chevrolet\'s own Corvair, Ford\'s Falcon and Plymouth\'s Valiant.
