Chevrolet Bringing 1967 Nova to SEMA Show
We’ve talked about the Red Line Series and the two new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS concepts rolling out at this week’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Chevrolet isn’t just focused on its new cars, however. It will also be bringing a 1967 Chevy Nova along for the trip.
According to AutoGuide, the ’67 Nova has been fully restored and is in great running order. Part of its ability to run well is hidden under the hood. Chevrolet has exchanged its original V8 for a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The newer engine is partnered with a new six-speed manual transmission. Even with fewer cylinders, the engine achieves 272 hp, which is close to the rating of the original engine. The lighter engine also helps the car race from 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds.
The rebuilt Chevy Nova is being brought to the SEMA show to advertise the offerings of the Chevy Performance catalog. It’s also trying to reach show attendees that are more focused on rebuilding classic cars, rather than modifying newer purchases. The exterior of the car also has other touches from the catalog, such as a billet aluminum grille, shaved door handles, and custom bronze 17-inch wheels. We think it looks pretty sharp.
