Top model in the 1967 Chevrolet Chevy II and
Nova line was the Nova SS hardtop.
"Plain Jane it ain't," declared one ad that featured a 1967 Chevrolet Nova SS. Available only in hardtop coupe form, the 1967 Chevrolet Nova SS got a new black-accented anodized aluminum grille.
Every 1967 Chevrolet Nova 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.
A four-cylinder engine was standard in the 100 series, but most had a six-cylinder instead.
Nova versions started with the 194-cubic-inch six but could have a 250-cubic-inch version for a little extra dough and go. Further powertrain possibilities included a 195-horsepower, 283-cubic-inch V-8 and, for $93 more, a 275-horsepwer 327-cubic-inch V-8.
Nova SS coupes had a console-mounted shift lever with their Powerglide automatic transmission four-speed manual Other models employed a column-mounted gearshift.
Compared to 1966'sl model-year output, sales of the
1967 Chevrolet Chevy II and Nova dropped by more than a third, 106,500 (including 12,900 station wagons). About 10,100 Nova SS Chevrolets went to customers this year, 8,200 of them with V-8 engines. In the Chevy II 100 and regular Nova series, six-cylinder engines sold far better than V-8s.
