i have a 18 series 67 ss nova. it is a mountain mist green with factory black vinyl top. 283 2bbl powerglide. is there a way to determine how many where built like this? i have looked at novaresource.org and can only narrow it down like this.
8213 --1967 v8 ss
6175---1967 327 275hp
6-------1967 327 325hp
-------
2032 283 ss's produced.
am i thinking correctly? i would like to narrow it down to color and vinyl top.
any help would be great
thanks

There is no info on color breakdown.

that sounds like a fairly uncommon combo though. I think there were only a couple thousand Vinyl top cars produced. That should be listed there somewhere.

Novaresource (administered by Scott who's post is above this one:)) indicates 4370 soft roof covers factory installed in 1967. Not all of those would have been on SS cars and many more were installed in the after market. Two factory colors were available...black and parchment. This doesn't narrow it down for your purposes, but as already indicated, there is no info on numbers of cars by option.

Things we do know:
V8 Super Sport = 8,213
Vinyl roof cover = 4,370
283 engine = 19,832 (approximate number)
327 engine = 6,181 (approximate number)
Total 1967 Novas = 106,430 (approximate number)

From those numbers we can ASSUME a few things.

If there were an approximate total of 26,013 V8 Novas in 1967 (19,832 283 and 6,181 327). That means approximately 76% of all V8 Novas were 283. If we ASSUME that 76% of all V8 SS Novas were 283 then there were approximately 6,242 283 SS Novas.

If there were only 4,370 Novas with a vinyl roof out of a total 106,430 Nova then we know that only approx 4.1% Novas had a vinyl roof. If we ASSUME 4.1% of all SS Novas came with a vinyl roof than we can ASSUME that approx 337 1967 SS Novas came with a vinyl roof.

Combining the 2 ASSUMPTIONS we can say 4.1% of all Novas came with a vinyl roof then 4.1% of all 283 V8 SS Novas came with a vinyl roof. That would make 256 '67 SS Novas with a 283 and a vinyl roof.

Again, that is just a guess but about 250-260 is probably close.
