After the rear-engine Chevrolet Corvair was outsold by the conventional Ford Falcon in 1960, Chevrolet began work on a more conventional compact car that would eventually become the Chevy II. The car was of semi-unibody construction having a bolt on front section joined to its unitized cabin and trunk rear section, available in two-door coupe and four-door sedan configurations as well as convertible and station wagon versions. The 1962 Chevy II came in three series and five body styles—the 100 Series, 300 Series and Nova 400 Series.The sportiest-looking of the lot was the Nova 400 convertible—23,741 were produced that year.
This immaculate Nova convertible is a low mileage example of the first year Nova model. It is presented in black with red bucket seat interior and white convertible top. The body is very straight and the paint finish is quite nice. The chrome trim and brightwork is in excellent condition. It is powered by the 194 cu in inline 6 cylinder engine with Powerglide automatic transmission. It features power steering and brakes, factory radio and optional wire wheel covers with spinners.or
