Wheel covers were inherited from the Malibu SS. Strato-bucket front seats were included, but a tachometer cost extra. This engine was first seen in the Chevelle.
The models received nothing more than a touch-up after a restyling for All Novas got a crosshatch pattern that filled the deck lid trim panel.
The Chevy II lacked much in the way of trim or brightwork. A government-mandated energy-absorbing steering column and safety steering wheel, soft interior parts such as armrests and sun visors, recessed instrument panel knobs, and front shoulder belt anchors, were included in all models.
The Chevy II and its deluxe Nova rendition continued to attract compact-car shoppers, but the Chevrolet Camaro, introduced for , took away some Nova sales.
Available only in hardtop coupe form, the Chevrolet Nova SS got a new black-accented anodized aluminum grille. SS wheel covers were again inherited, this time from the —66 Impala SS.
Nova SS coupes had a console-mounted shift lever with their Powerglide automatic transmission or a four-speed manual. Other models had a column-mounted gearshift.
Compared to the model year output, sales of the models dropped by more than a third to , including 12, station wagons. The models were fully redesigned with an extensive restyle on a longer inch wheelbase that gave Chevy's compacts a chassis that was just one inch shorter than that of the midsize Chevelle coupe.
The station wagon and hardtop sport coupe were discontinued, the former in line with an industry trend which left AMC the only American maker of compact station wagons until Chrysler rejoined the market in the —70 Ford Falcon wagon was actually a midsize, using a bodyshell identical to the Fairlane wagon's.
One notable change was the front subframe assembly — as compared with Ford , Chrysler and AMC , in whose cars the entire front suspension was integrated with the bodyshell, a separate subframe housing the powertrain and front suspension similar to the front part of the frame of GM's full-size , full-framed vehicles replaced the earlier style.
Although the front subframe design was unique for the Nova, the Camaro introduced a year earlier was the first to incorporate such a design; the redesigned Nova was pushed a year ahead to instead of The sales brochure claimed 15 powertrain choices for coupes and a dozen for sedans.
Options included power brakes and steering, Four-Season or Comfort-Car air conditioning, rear shoulder belts, and head restraints. There were a few Chevrolet Novas built with the ci 3.
Sales of the Chevy Nova fell by half. In Chevrolet dropped the Chevy II portion of its compact car's name; it was now known simply as the Chevrolet Nova.
The Torque-Drive transmission was only offered with the four and six-cylinder engines. The two-speed Powerglide was still the only fully automatic transmission available with most engines, as the more desirable three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic was only available with the largest V8 engines.
The Nova Super Sport was transformed from a trim option to a performance package for Novas sported the SS badge until For the Chevy II nameplate was retired, leaving the Nova nameplate.
As with other GM vehicles, locking steering columns were incorporated into the Nova. The Nova was basically a carryover from The side marker and taillight lenses for the Nova were wider and positioned slightly differently.
This was the final year for the SS actually, a cubic in. All other engines were carried over including the seldom-ordered four-cylinder which was in its final year.
The other two were sold in Canada. The Nova was used in Trans-Am racing this year. The Rally kit included black or white stripes that ran the length of the car and around the back, a Rally Nova sticker on the driver's side of the hood, Rally wheels, multi-leaf rear springs, and a "sport" body colored driver's side mirror that was adjustable from the interior.
The well-hyped Vega stole sales from the Nova this year, but the compact soon would enjoy a resurgence of popularity that would last deep into the s.
A mid year production change was the front door hinges spot welded to the A pillar and the door shell, a design shared with the Vega and later implemented by GM's subsequent light duty trucks and vans which later was used with the S10, Astro van, and full size trucks commencing with the GMT a decade later.
This was considered to build brand loyalty with respective GM divisions although the company later fused their badge engineering with platform sharing to cut expenditures.
The introduction of the Omega and Apollo coincided with the subsequent oil crisis where sales of the X and H platform increased.
The Nova received only minor trim changes. The Rally Sport option with special suspension returned and was a rather popular choice, with 33, sold.
Super Sport equipment went on 12, coupes, some of which also had the Rally package. Nova production moved to Norwood, Ohio, where it would be assembled alongside the Camaro.
At mid-year a sunroof option became available on two-door models. Also, the optional Strato bucket seats available on coupes switched from the previous low-back design with adjustable headrests to the high back units with built-in headrests introduced the previous year on Camaros and Vegas.
Despite the lack of change, Nova had its best sales season in years, with production of the models reaching , Of these, , had the six-cylinder engine.
The model year introduced a hatchback bodystyle based on the 2-door coupe. The front and rear of the Nova were restyled, following a government mandate for vehicles to be fitted with front and rear bumpers capable of absorbing a low-speed impact of 2.
To go along with the bigger bumpers, stylists gave the Nova a new grille with a loosely patterned crosshatch insert and parking lights located inboard of the headlights.
Fuel tank capacity increased to 21 gallons, which required a redesigned trunk pan where a circular section was stamped to house the space saver spare tire used on hatchback models.
It could be ordered with any of the Nova engines. A modified rear side window shape was also introduced, eliminating the vent windows on both two- and four-door models.
A revised rear suspension was adapted from the second generation Camaro with multi-leaf springs replacing the mono-leaf springs used on Novas since the original model.
The Nova with a six-cylinder engine or cu. Every Chevrolet Nova got side guard door beams and additional sound insulation, as well as flow-through ventilation systems.
A sunroof could be installed, and fold-down rear seats were available. For , the Chevrolet Nova got larger parking lights and new bow-tie grille emblems, as well as modified bumpers that added two inches to length and helped cushion minor impacts.
Nova sales continued the surge they had enjoyed since and approached , cars for Six-cylinder Novas were the fastest gainers, as sales of V-8 Novas declined.
These were the years of the first energy crisis as Middle Eastern countries cut back on oil exports. After waiting for hours in gas lines and fretting about the prospect of fuel rationing, thrifty compacts looked pretty good to plenty of Americans.
Nova fit the bill. The 'Spirit of America' Nova was introduced in In anticipation of the US bicentennial in , the limited edition Nova Coupes were painted white and featured blue and red accent stripes as well as red and blue interior carpets and fabrics.
Oldsmobile and Buick entered the compact car market; both the Apollo and Omega debuted, using the same bodystyles from the Nova lineup.
Additional options were included on these Nova-like models, such as lighting under the dashboard and in the glove compartment.
Pontiac's final GTO of this era was based on a facelifted Ventura coupe, itself based on the Nova, but fitted with a shaker hoodscoop from the Trans Am.
Novas and all cars were fitted with a weight sensitive relay within the front seat that prevented the vehicle from being started until the driver's seatbelt had been fastened, following a safety mandate from the NHTSA.
Later, a law passed by Congress repealed the mandate requiring this type of device, declaring that it infringed on a driver's freedom of choice, and allowed owners of model cars to have the seat belt interlock bypassed.
Retired race car driver and muscle car specialist Don Yenko of Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania refitted a series of Third generation Novas, as well as Chevelles and Camaros for optimum performance to compete with the frontrunning Ford Mustangs , Plymouth Barracudas and Dodge Challengers.
The specially redesigned Nova sometimes known as the "Yenko Supernova" had a stronger body frame and suspension system to house the powerful and heavy cid 7.
Today, only seven units are registered and known to exist. In , emissions standards and fuel economy were taking a toll on muscle cars.
Additionally, the new "Yenko Deuce", as it was known, had extensive suspension, transmission, and rear axle upgrades along with some very lively stripes, badges, and interior decals.
The Chevrolet Nova was the most-changed Chevy car for that model year. Front tread grew by an inch and a half, and the front stabilizer bar had a larger diameter.
Novas now had standard front disc brakes and steel-belted radial tires. The front suspension and subframe assembly was similar to the one used in the second generation GM F-body cars the Camaro and Pontiac Firebird , whereas the rear axle and suspension were carried over from the previous generation.
All Novas now had cut-pile carpeting, formerly installed only in the Custom series. Speedometers had larger, easier-to-read graphics.
Windshields offered greater glass area. Front-door armrests were redesigned with integral pull bars. Mated to a three-speed automatic , 3-speed manual or 4-speed — V8s only — Which remained the norm through the end of the decade and the end of the rear-wheel drive X platform.
The LN Luxury Nova package which was the top luxury trim similar to the Caprice and Malibu Classic sent Nova into the luxury portion of the compact market; some actually thought of it as competing against a few high-end European imports.
The Nova LN was called "the most luxurious compact in Chevrolet's history," with wide-back reclining front seats that "look and feel like big, soft lounge chairs.
Taillight lenses have additional white accents unavailable with the base model and a chrome plated grille. Above the front marker lenses the LN had 4.
Swing-out quarter windows could be ordered for the coupe. Like regular versions of the Nova, the Concours came in three body styles: Concours was the most luxurious Chevrolet compact to date.
Rosewood vinyl decorated the upper door panels, instrument panel, and steering wheel. Concours models had an upright hood ornament, bumper guards, bright trim moldings, black bumper impact strips, and full wheel covers; more-basic Novas came with hubcaps.
The Concours coupe also was the first Chevrolet coupe with a fold-down front center armrest. Engines for the Chevrolet Nova were a horsepower inline-six, a horsepower cubic-inch V-8, or a horse cubic-inch V A lighter duty 10 bolt rear differential with a 7.
A Cabriolet padded vinyl top was available for Nova coupes. Modest revisions were made to the brakes, and also to fuel and exhaust system mountings.
Dashboards contained new knobs. After testing the Chevrolet Nova, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department placed the largest order for compact police cars ever seen in the U.
Some new colors were offered as with the rest of the divisions and some small trim added. A separate brochure was printed for the Concours while the " Nova" brochure detailed only base and Custom versions.
A badged-engineered Nova Malibu Rallye and model years — not related to the USA market Chevelle-based model and based on the Nova hatchback coupe was sold in Mexico using the RPO Z26 package but fitted with 'Malibu Rallye' graphics and a front grille emblem.
Three engines and four transmissions were available for every Chevrolet Nova, including Concours. Buyers could choose from a horsepower cubic-inch inline six, a horsepower cubic-inch two-barrel V-8, or horsepower cubic-inch four-barrel V Shifting was accomplished by three-speed column or floor shift and four-speed manuals or Turbo Hydra-Matic.
Novas might also be equipped with a heavy-duty suspension or the F41 sport suspension. A surprising number of police departments ordered Novas with either a or cubic-inch V-8 engine, following the lead of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, which had given the compacts an exhaustive evaluation.
Promoted as "Concours by Chevrolet", the Concours featured a new vertical bar grille and a revised stand-up hood ornament. The rear of the Concours also got new triple unit taillamps reminiscent of the Caprice.
It also boasted newly designed wheel covers and wider bright wheel-opening moldings. The brochure went on to note that Concours offered a "very special blending of classic style and good sense.
Novas themselves, the marketing materials said, were "not too small, not too big, not too expensive. For the Concours was discontinued to clear the way for the newly downsized Malibu, and the Nova Custom inherited much of the Concours' exterior finery but lacked the stand-up hood ornament displayed by the Concours.
More basic versions of the Chevrolet Nova had the same grille used in ' and added a gold-tinted Chevy bowtie emblem at the leading edge of the hood.
For '78 Nova was also available with Rally equipment, which included yet another front-end layout: All Nova drivers faced a new dual-spoke, soft vinyl-covered steering wheel; the same one found in the Caprice and Malibu.
Any Chevrolet Nova could be ordered with a cubic-inch six-cylinder engine, a horsepower cubic-inch V-8, or a horsepower cubic-inch V Law enforcement agencies in 48 states were driving Novas by now, as the sales brochure boasted.
Production dropped almost , for the model, to ,, making Nova the only Chevrolet series to show a sales decline for Sales of the Nova hatchback body style lagged well behind regular coupes and sedans, and base models handily outsold Customs.
Upon introduction of the downsized GM A-body later G-body mid-size cars in , the X-body and downsized A-platform had similar exterior dimensions.
The roomier and more modern downsized A-bodies outsold their X-body counterparts. The Chevrolet Nova marked the end of the line for the rear-wheel-drive Nova.
The front end was revised with square headlights and a new grille for the short run; a modified horizontal-bar grille contained vertical parking lights.
New chromed hood and fender moldings were installed, and new front-bumper filler panels gave the front end a more finished look.
The Custom went back to the base 4 taillight panel since the 3 light panel was discontinued. The lineup was the same as in ; the base-level hatchback, coupe, and sedan, plus the Custom coupe and sedan.
As usual, base coupe and sedan proved to be the best sellers. Nova Customs had a special acoustical package including improved headlining and full hood insulation, along with other luxury extras, while the Rally Package returned, this time using the same grille as other '79 Novas.
These final Novas were promoted for their "solid value" and "reputation for dependability," capitalizing upon a year heritage that had begun with the Chevy II.
Fewer than 98, examples were produced. Regular production ended on December 22, but some cars badged "Nova Custom" were built on special order with luxury amenities in early The final Chevrolet Nova Custom built on special order would roll off the line in March 15, and this would be the end of the rear-drive Nova for good.
Chevrolet's compact models were headed into the front-wheel-drive age and for , Nova's place in the lineup would be taken over by the new and very different Chevrolet Citation.
The Chevrolet Nova nameplate returned in spring as a front-wheel drive subcompact vehicle for the to model years.
It resurrected a name last used on the compact -sized rear-wheel drive Chevrolet Nova. The new Nova was a rebadged and mildly restyled Japanese market Toyota Sprinter , a model sold in Japan as a badge engineered version of the Toyota Corolla.
Nova shared the Corolla's AE82 platform , 1. It was designed for manufacturability and reached an unusually high level of quality and production speed at NUMMI, compared to other US factories.
The basic architecture of the Silver Cloud II did not change between and , but there were numerous minor changes implemented, notable among them a succession of improvements to the ventilation system.
A remodelled rear light assembly was introduced in May and a change to single sealed-beam headlamps was made in August The Motor magazine tested a Series II in They recorded a top speed of The Silver Cloud III was first displayed to the public at the Paris salon at the beginning of October but along with the Bentley S3 the cars were displayed on a specialist coachwork stand as if the modifications were to the special order of a particular customer.
The engine now included a nitride hardened crankshaft to reflect the extra power being generated and in response to reports of broken crankshafts in the earlier V8 Silver Clouds.
The headlights were grouped in a four-headlamp layout subsequently continued in the later Silver Shadow.
Between and there were no major changes. Stainless steel wheel trims replaced chrome-plated ones in April , and an improved rear window demister was introduced in November of the same year.
