RealRides of WNY #2457 ......................... 1963 Chevy II Nova SS

– Although these days many refer to the entire large compact lineup (larger, that is, than the compact Corvair) sold by Chevrolet as Nova, in reality, from its inception for MY 1962 on through to 1967, these cars were called the Chevy II, with the Nova nameplate being the top series of the lineup. For 1968 they all morphed into the Chevy II Nova, and the following year it was just Chevy Nova. When this 1963 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova SS was new, it was at the very top of the Chevy II heap, sold as an option package for the Nova 400 sport coupe (a.k.a. 2-door hardtop) and convertible. The Nova 400 nameplate was followed downward by the Chevy II 300 and 100 models (in sedan and station wagon forms only). You knew you were behind a Nova SS by the “silver color rear cove area,” which was the panel between the taillamps. On the rest of the lineup it was painted body color (see below).We saw today’s RealRide at the 2021 Full Throttle Car & Bike Show on Lee Street.
