Custom 1967 Chevrolet Nova Fetches $300,000 at Auction

1967 was a slow year for the second-generation Nova, with sales having dropped by more than a third compared to 1966. Chevrolet had to redesign the compact for 1968, when the third-generation Nova was introduced.

Sold until 1974, the third-generation Nova was the nameplate’s most popular iteration, with early SS and Yenko models quite popular among musclecar collectors. However, it looks like some enthusiasts would rather have a second-gen vehicle, especially if it’s radically modified, like this ’67 show stopper you’re about to see below.

Built by famed Illinois-based specialist Roadster Shop, the restomod-style Nova was sold for no less than $300,000 by RK Collector Car Auctions earlier this month, proving that classics can blow up in value even with lots of their original parts missing.

Dubbed “The Innovator”, this 1967 Nova is powered by an LSX454 Block that outputs 700 HP and 611 lb-ft of torque and features several handcrafted parts and an exclusive interior that takes the cabin’s classic design 40 years into the future. Just head below to have a closer look at this unique musclecar.
