Overview


The 1966 Nova introduced the second-generation with a sharp-edged restyle based in part on the Super Nova concept car.


The 1966 Nova introduced the second-generation with a sharp-edged restyle based in part on the Super Nova concept car. To sum it up, dimensions were squared up a bit, but features changed little.

The SS was still available as a sport coupe, and was the top-of-the-line model. The 194ci was standard, but any engine could be optioned in (except the 4-cylinder). It was visually distinguished with wide rocker panels, and a bright aluminum deck lid cove.

Both versions of the optional 327ci saw a power increase to 275 and 350 hp.
