The Chevy Nova was a compact sports car by American Motors, built between 1962 through 1979, and again from 1985 through 1988. The first model years are the ones that are treasured by classic car collectors and American muscle car enthusiasts.
The Nova was created to be competition for the Ford Falcon. It was meant to be sold as an economical daily driver, but it found fans in customers that wanted a bit more muscle in their car. It was available in several body styles: a 2-door sedan, 2-door hardtop, 2-door convertible (1962-63), 4-door sedan, and a 4-door station wagon. It used an FR layout on an X-body platform.
The Nova came with a large group of engine choices, including the 153 cu in (2.5 L) Chevrolet 153 I4, 194 cu in (3.18 L) I6, 230 cu in (3.8 L) I6, and a 283 cu in (4.64 L) V8. A specially trimmed SS model came with a powerful 327 cu in (5.36 L) V8 engine. Transmission choices were a 3 or 4-speed manual or 2-speed Powerglide automatic.
The Nova Super Sport was one of the models of note. What was just a trim option became a performance package for 1968. The Nova SS now included a 295 hp (220 kW) 350 cu in (5.7 l) V8 engine. A super-duty suspension and other performance hardware. Optional engines included two versions of the big-block 396 cu in (6.5 l) V8 rated at 350 hp (260 kW) and 375 hp (280 kW.)
