1962 Chevy Nova – The Compact Muscle Car



When Ford launched their compact Falcon in 1960, they tapped into a market for small cars that had yet been unrealized. Chevrolet took a full 2 model years to respond, but when they did, they really hit the nail on the head. Chevy’s new small car was the 1962 Chevy II, benchmarked by its designers against the Falcon, and a slightly bigger, better car by almost every measure, as the result. Available in a sedan, a wagon, a hardtop and a convertible they also offered a wide range of engines, options and trim levels. Nova was the name given to the premium trim level.
