1962 Chevrolet Nova

General Overview

The 1962 Chevy II was introduced to be a rival of the Ford Falcon.

It was sporty, simple, and conventional.

The Chevy II came in three series and five body styles: 100, 300, and Nova 400 series.

The combination of readily available V8 power and light-weight chassis made the Nova a popular choice of drag racers.
