1965 Chevrolet

Nova

The 1965 Nova was updated with a cleaner front-end sporting a full-width grille and new integrated headlight bezels. Parking lights moved down to the deep-section bumper, and sedans gained a new roofline.

The SS came as a sport coupe only, and its production dipped to just 9,100 cars. The Super Sports had a new brushed-chrome console with floor-mounted 4-speed manual, or Powerglide auto. Three-speed manual was "three on the tree."

Chevy II enthusiasts recognize 1965 as the year the Nova became a muscle car with the help of the new 327ci V8 available with up to 300 hp.

Sales took a drastic hit because of cannibalism from the redesigned Corvair.
