1977 Chevrolet Nova.jpg

Chevrolet Nova (X-car). 1975–9 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan, 2- and 3-door coupé. F/R, 250 in³ (I6 OHV), 260, 305, 350 in³ (V8 OHV). Restyled version of previous Nova, but with crisper, more modern lines, and suspension from Chevrolet Camaro (1970–81). Improved handling but only average ride. Nova LN (Luxury Nova) model for 1975, a plush compact to rival imports, not to mention sister car, the Buick Skylark (1975–9). The LN was renamed Concours for 1976 and 1977. SS replaced by Rally in 1977. Dated, especially after Ford Fairmont (1978–83) launched, and appearing inefficient alongside downsized Chevrolet Malibu (1978–83) in its final two years.
