RealRides of WNY #2585 ......................... 1963 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova SS

– The 1963 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova SS had one of the longer names in that year’s North American domestic compact car market. Just a few years down the road, the Chevy II moniker would be unceremoniously dropped, along with its convertibles, pillarless hardtops, and station wagon models. I suppose it simplified the manufacturing process, but it made for a pretty dull Nova series, IMO. Convertibles always lend a bit of pizzazz to any lineup, no matter how dull they might be at the entry level. As the Dutch language catalog told us, “De convertible nog steed de ideale wagen om van elke rit een aangenaam uitstapie te maken.” For you non-Dutch speakers, “The convertible is still the ideal car to make every trip a pleasant trip.” Well, maybe not in January in WNY. We saw this one at the COVID-shortened 2020 Taste of West Seneca Car Show, which featured… NO FOOD!! They labeled it “A Tasteless Car Show,” Lol.
