3 Reasons The Chevy Nova is a Collector Worthy Car


1. THE CHEVY NOVA HAS A RICH HISTORY.

  • The original Chevy II offered a pair of engines, including the 2.5-liter inline-four and the 3.2-liter straight-six engine. As a result of declining sales following the release of the 1964 Chevelle, V8 engines were eventually added to the line, including the fuel-injected version typically found in the Chevy Corvette. During the first 4 years after its debut, updates included a restyled exterior design, a revamped dashboard, and the inclusion of bucket seats.
  • The second generation Chevy II was unveiled in 1966. The new design featured a more squared body, an eye-catching grille and a fastback roofline. Customers had a choice of engines: a 3.18-liter inline-six, a 3.8-liter inline-six, a 4.64-liter V8 (with 195 to 220 horsepower), a 5.36-liter V8 (275 horsepower), and the new Turbo-Fire 5.36-liter V8 (350 horsepower). With these changes and upgrades, the vehicle began its transformation into a muscle car.
  • The third generation made its debut in 1968. The vehicle was completely redesigned to compete with the Camaro, featuring a longer wheelbase and a new subframe. The new generation also included new power brakes and steering, an adaptive air conditioning unit, and restyled head restraints. It was this generation that the name 'Chevy II' was dropped and 'Nova' was picked up. The fourth and fifth generation didn't offer many changes in the way of engine or power, just simple esthetic upgrades.


2. THE CHEVY NOVA IS SOMEWHAT OF A RARE CAR.

In the 1960s, Chevy executives made the push for a budget friendly 'basic' car to be released and out on dealership lots as quickly as possible. This urgency left very little time for designers to focus on details or throw around ideas, making the 'Chevy II' the fastest car development process in history. In just a short 18 month period after approval, the first Nova rolled off the assembly line. To help speed the process, the developers relied on the Ford Falcon as a point of reference.


3. THIS CAN BE NOT ONLY A HOBBY CAR BUT AN INVESTMENT.

Chevy Novas are collector-worthy cars, meaning if you find one that needs a few minor repairs, you could restore it, sell it, and end up making quite a bit of money on it if you about the process properly.
