Car: Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova Super Sport

Year: 1966

What makes it special: The year 1966 began the second generation for the Nova, which was restyled but still technically a Chevy II.

What made it famous: The Nova SS was the top of the line, available only in a Sport Coupe, and had bright "SS" emblems on the grille and in the ribbed rear panel, and with the words "Super Sport" on the quarter panels in script.

Why I would want one: The availability of the 350 hp, Turbo-Fire 327 cu in V8 engine, with the close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission, which turned the "Clark Kent-like" Nova into a decent muscle car.

Fun Fact: Chevrolet's 1966 Chevy II sales brochure promoted the Super Sport as the “Chevrolet Chevy II Nova Super Sport”, but in 1967, the Nova SS option package replaced all Chevy II badging with Nova SS badging.
