First Generation Nova (1962-65)

The first of the Chevy Nova generations debuted in 1962 and was offered until 1965, when the second generation replaced it. The classic car was available in many different body styles, among them, a two- and a four-door sedan, a two-door hardtop, and a four-door station wagon. There was a two-door convertible available briefly as well, in 1962 and 1963.

Engine options would be just as many. You could get a Chevrolet 153 2.5-liter, in-line, four-cylinder, a 3.18- or a 3.8-liter, in-line, six-cylinder, or a choice between 4.64- and 5.36-liter V8. Depending on which you chose, it'd come paired with either a three- or four-speed manual transmission or a two-speed Powerglide automatic.

Notable model years included 1963 and 1965. For 1963, a Super Sport (SS) variant was released; contrary to popular belief, it wasn't available for the 1962 model year. The car featured everything from unique emblems, wheel covers, and side moldings to bucket seating, a floor shifter, and an instrument package. For 1965, the model's front-end styling was revised to include a full-width grille with integrated headlight bezels, bumper-integrated parking lights, and, in the case of the sedan, a new roofline design. Other improvements included modified tail and reverse lights and rear cove. Otherwise, features ranged from textured vinyl-trim seats to ammeter, oil pressure, and temperature gauges on the dash.

Looking to restore your first-gen Chevy Nova to its rightful place as an icon of the era? You can't do it with just any aftermarket parts and accessories. To get everything right, down to the details, choose genuine OEM.
