Chevrolet Nova SS
The Nova was Chevrolet’s compact introduced first as Chevy II in the early ’60s. The small, affordable model was just a scaled-down Chevelle or Impala. Still, it obtained serious street credibility by the end of the ’60s since it became a favorite street racer weapon. The combination of Nova`s lightweight body and potent V8 engines made it very fast (via Motor Trend).
Chevrolet introduced the SS 350 and SS 396 versions in 1968/9, which were extremely fast. The 1970 model still retained classic styling and two powerful V8 engines as an option. Independent tuners like Yenko even offered brutally fast 427 conversions.
