1970 Chevy Nova

1970 CHEVY NOVA CHANGES
The 1970 Nova basically carried over from the 1969 model with some subtle differences in the shape and placement of the side market lights and tail lights. This is the first year its simply called the Chevrolet Nova, without any reference to the retired Chevy II nameplate. This was also the final year for the Nova SS396, by now actually a 402, which nonetheless continued to be called a 396.
1970 CHEVY NOVA PRODUCTION NUMBERS
The total number of Chevy Novas sold in the 1970 model year was 254,242. Of those, 19,558 were Super Sports, either the SS350 or SS396. 177 COPO (Corporate Office Purchase Order) Novas were ordered, 175 of which went to Yenko Chevrolet for further modifications into a Yenko Nova. The other 2 went to Canada.

WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED

We are growing as fast as we can, gathering and taking eye-popping photos of awesome Classic American Muscle Cars, doing research on specifications and history, and writing content. We all love these great cars, so it’s not like work, in fact, it’s a blast. But it does take time. If you see that we’re lacking in some area, we just don’t have the photos and/or content yet to finish. Give us some time and as we get more eye-popping photos, we will continue to flesh out the site. Join us as we grow, but please be patient with that growth.

PS: Special thanks go out to Specialty Sales (www.SpecialtySales.com) for the hundreds of eye-popping pictures they've allowed us to use. Specialty has 4 classic car showrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area full of gorgeous classics. We'd also like to thank The Goodguys (www.good-guys.com) for putting on some of the best car shows around, and allowing me to take all these great pictures. Thanks again to you both.
