1966 Chevy Nova is a Classic Show Stopping Coupe

If you are looking for a classic car that (possibly) won’t break the bank, has the powerful base specifications of a muscle car, and offers multiple opportunities for modification you may want to take a closer look at an American classic by the name of the Chevy Nova.

Origins of the ’66 Chevy Nova

Originally known as the Chevy II Nova, 1966 was a banner year for the car that would eventually become a staple of General Motors automotive catalog. The 66 Nova flew off the sales lots, accounting for 20,986 units sold, and for good reason. It combined a certain subtlety with supercar flair and redefined what a sport coupe could be.

1966 Chevy Nova Engine Specs

The 1966 Nova featured a powerful yet economical six cylinder engine that boasted 350 horsepower and forged high-compression pistons. Its engine included big valve heads, aluminum intake mounting, and performance profile camshaft that all combined to enable performance that was indistinguishable from many of the eras sports cars and hot rods. Its small frame of less than 3000 pounds let the power of the engine get the most bang for its buck.

A Classy, Under-Rated Sports Coupe

While some modern car fanatics might not put much stock in the ’66 Chevy Nova, this highly underrated sports coupe packed a lot of power into its small frame and outclassed some of its competition, including the beloved Chevelle, in terms of performance. It distinguished itself visually with wide rocker panels and an aluminum deck lid cove that brightened its trim significantly.

The Often Imitated, Never Duplicated ’66 Nova

The 1966 Chevy Nova was an influential automobile that was often imitated but never duplicated in the next two model years. Novas of the next few years adhered to the model specifications very closely because the prevailing attitude was that very little could be done to improve on it. With a tacit endorsement like that, you may wonder why the brand doesn’t have more recognition or gearheads singing its praises. It may have more to do with general dissatisfaction with its iterations in the early 1970s and its relaunch as a subcompact in the 1980s than the actual performance of the 1960s models.

Take a closer look at the Chevy Nova for 1966. It won’t let you down.

1968 Dodge Charger: A Muscle Car Legacy

Some words evoke a smile for almost any car enthusiast. Mopar is one of them, always will be. Even for car enthusiasts who prefer a Ford or a Chevy, there’s no denying the impact Chrysler muscle cars made through the 60’s and 70’s. Although most car companies had a “hot rod”, the 1968 Dodge Charger was one that truly stood out.

The 68 Charger was actually the second generation of this Charger line. “Charger” packages were offered on some models since 1964, like the Dart GT, but the first actual Chargers were released in 66. These first generation cars weren’t really much more than a souped up Coronet, and sales were slow in the muscle-hungry performance car market. Then, in 1968, Chrysler got serious about competing for the expanding market for muscle, and the second gen Chargers began what would become a muscle car legacy.

1968 Dodge Charger

The ’68 Charger and Charger RT feature what’s referred to as the Coke-body style due to the long, sleek lines, and its low stance add to the aerodynamics (and the appealing appearance) of the vehicle. As noted by Old Ride, the 1968 Charger measures 77 inches wide and 208 inches long with a 117-inch wheel base.

Under the Hood: Dodge V8 Engines Offered for the 1968 Charger

  1. 225 cubic inch 1bbl – A straight six that strained to push the two tons to anything resembling performance. Only about 500 were made.
  2. 318 cubic inch 2bbl V-8 – Base level power plants that did the job, but not much more.
  3. 383 cubic inch 2bbl and 4bbl V-8 – A true high performance upgrade from the small block 318.
  4. 440 cubic inch 4bbl V-8 – At 375 horsepower, this was the standard engine for the Charger R/T. The 440 magnum is an icon of the muscle car era.
  5. 426 cubic inch 2 x 4 bbl RB V-8 Hemi- Now we’re talking. The 425 hp rating is generally considered to be a lowball figure. Most estimates put it well over 500 horses.

The iconic styling played a part in the car’s popularity, but it was the muscle that made the 1968 Dodge Charger the legend that it is today.

1968 Chevrolet Camaro: Formerly Code Name Panther

The 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is a first generation GM pony car, which, before the 1967’s, with the same body style,  hit the market was referred to a “Panther” by company execs. When asked about the curious designation, according to We Love Camaros, the GM executives would playfully respond that the “Panther” is a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs. This was due to the fact that the first gen Camaro was released, along with the first gen Pontiac Firebird to compete directly with the extremely popular Ford Mustang.

1968 Chevrolet Camaro Information

The 1968 Chevy Camaro was given a handful of designations over the years, including pony car, muscle car, intermediate touring car, and sports car. No matter what term was used to describe it, however, it was a wildly popular ride, and still is today.

A total of 245,147 Camaros were produced for 1968, with the majority of  those being the base coupe according to Old Ride. Other models included the base convertible, the Rally Sport Camaro, the Camaro SS, and the Z/28 Camaro.

The Six-Cylinder 1968 Chevy Camaros

The six cylinder Camaros for 1968 included the Series 23 Camaro Sport Coupe (with almost 50,000 produced) and the Series 23 Camaro Convertible (with under 3,000 made), as noted by 1968SS.

The Selection of 8-Cylinder ’68 Camaros

A total of eight 8-cylinder options were offered for the ’68 Camaro, according to My Classic Garage. These options included:

  1. The 302 cubic inch 290hp engine in the Z/28
  2. The 327 cubic inch 275hp engine in the L30
  3. The 327 cid 210hp engine in the standard model V8
  4. The 350 cubic inch 295hp engine in the L48
  5. The 396 cid 375hp engine in the L78
  6. The 396 cubic inch 325hp in the L35
  7. The 396 cid 350hp engine in the L34
  8. The 427 cubic inch 425hp engine in the L72

1968 Camaro Dimensions

In comparison to a lot of other cars in the market for 1968, the Camaro was fairly small and light, and the combination of its light weight and powerful engines drop it squarely in the heart of the muscle car genre.

The car’s total length is 184.7 inches and its wheel base comes in at 108 inches. The Camaro for ’68 measures 51.5 inches tall and 72.6 inches wide. The nickname Panther may have been an insider’s joke before the first gen Camaros hit the market, but its sleek stance and powerful performance delivered a certain amount of raw magnetism and appeal that’s not unlike the panther and kind of unusual to find in a machine.

The Phenomenon Of The 1965 Ford Mustang

The 1965 Ford Mustang is a pony car that’s been making history since it first hit the market, and it’s easy to see why. Its sleek lines and the throaty growl of its powerful V8 engine make this a ride that’s a thrill to drive and a pleasure to look at whether it’s parked or cruising down the street.

1965 Ford Mustang History

Whirling in the mind of a young Lee Iacocca, was the concept of introducing a reasonably priced sports car to a youth flooded car market. So, in April 1964 at the Worlds Fair, the first Ford Mustang was introduced. The response was tremendous. Nearly 700,000 buyers weighed in and the popularity of this car was established.

’65 Mustang First Release Sales Records

The Mustang was Ford’s response to the popular Chevrolet Corvair. But, much more than that, it set the stage for the muscle car era. The 65 “‘tang” made the cover of Time and Newsweek before it hit the market to entice an awaiting buyer. The first release of this car made a sales record for the car industry.

’65 Mustang V8 engines

The basic car had a 101-horsepower six-cylinder engine with a three-speed manual transmission floor shift, but quickly, a 260-cubic-inch V-8 with 164 horsepower was offered. The 289-cubic-inch version of that V-8 with 200, 225 and 271 horsepower were the next available options. The 260 and the 289 caught the attention of Carroll Shelby and were placed in his Cobra cars. The V8 engines sold 3-to-1 over the 6-cylinder motors.

2+2 Fastback Mustang

The fastback design evolved as a collaboration between Ford and Carroll Shelby. Two engine versions were introduced. One with a 306hp as a street version and the other 360hp (GT-350R) that was ready to race. Thus the highly collectible Shelby Mustang fastback made its appearance.

’65 Mustang Hardtop Coupe

The hardtop (the model shown in the image above) was the most popular of the Mustang designs in 1965. Ford sold over 500,000 hardtop models. That was heads over the convertible and fastback models.

Mustang ’65 Convertible

The first run of the Mustang was 1964 & 1/2 that included the coupe and the convertible. The Convertible sold to over 100,000 buyers.

The 1965 Ford Mustang is still as popular among automotive enthusiasts today as when it was first introduced.

1964 Dodge Polara Outshines Most Other Muscle Cars

Chrysler’s 1964 Dodge Polara

1964 Dodge Polara

1964 Dodge Polara image by GPS 56 from New Zealand (1964 Dodge Polara) [CC BY 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Sleek with shiny chrome galore, this beauty of a classic car, designed in hard top and convertible models is extremely desirable. Under the hood lies the V8 318 engine with a high performance torque of 461 Nm / 340 lb-ft that responds well to acceleration with a 3-gear manual shift stick on the floor. (Other engine options offered in the 1964 Dodge Polara are detailed below.) The 4-Door Sedan holds large capacity bucket front seats and roomy back seating popular for 1960 autos.

1964 Dodge Polara Holds Up Against Stiff Competition

This model from Dodge production began in 1960, where a full-sized car was popular and in demand. In 1962, the Polara was “downsized” slightly where it remained this smaller size until its replacement in 1973, the Dodge Monaco. Its two main competitors were the Ford Galaxie 500 and the Chevrolet Impala.

'64 Dodge Polara

The 64 Polara Popularity Highly Profitable for Dodge

The Big Three in automobile manufacturing companies, Dodge, Ford and Chevrolet worked hard to distinguish their styles as innovative and unique in character, speed, performance, and appearance. The Polara’s back fins, stacked rear lights and front chrome grill was customized by designers to stand out among this competition, and it served them well. Through trial and error, a superior and sought-after automobile primarily because of its appearance showed increased sales, starting in 1965.

Mopar: Chrysler’s Nickname For Motor Parts

Clamoring to produce a car, model and lingo that would prove state-of-art and appeal to American drivers, there are two meanings for the term: Motor Parts, and Massively Over Powered And Respected.

Dodge V8 Engine For Speed and Performance

In a day of small cars without heavy weight chrome, large-scale engine sizes and seating and focus on mileage and environmentally-protective features, power under the hood is what attracts muscle car lovers. V8 engine cars competed on how quickly their engines could drag-race to reach 0-60mph.

Engine and transmission options, as detailed by Automobile Catalog, for the ’64 Polara include:

  • The 318 V8
  • The 318 V8 TorqueFlite
  • The 383 V8 2-bbl (automatic tranny)
  • The 383 V8 2-bbl 4-speed
  • The 383 V8 2-bbl TorqueFlite
  • The 383 V8 4-bbl
  • The 383 V8 4-bbl with the 4-speed transmission
  • The 383 V8 4-bbl TorqueFlite
  • The 426 V8 High-performance 4-speed
  • The 426 V8 High-performance TorqueFlite
  • The 426 Ram Charger Competition V8 3-speed
  • The 426 Ram Charger Competition V8 4-speed
  • The 426 Ram Charger Competition V8 TorqueFlite
  • The 426 Ram Charger Competition high-compression 3-speed
  • The 426 Ram Charger Competition high-compression 4-speed

64 Chrysler Corporation Speed Ratings

4.8 seconds for the Dodge Charger rates as number 4/10, only slightly behind Corvette and Cobra. Car popularity ebbs and flows for decades, but Dodge will always stand for high quality in manufacturing autos according to muscle car aficionados!

1967 Chevelle: Rock Crusher Tranny vs the Turbo-Hydramatic Transmission

The 1967 Chevelle is one of the sleekest and most beautiful cars you could ever own. The engine makes a roar you simply cannot replicate, and it’s a car that entices with its beautiful sounds and power.

1967 Chevelle

1967 Chevelle image courtesy of dave_7 from Lethbridge, Canada (1967 Chevrolet Chevelle) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

The ’67 Chevelle was the last year for the first gen Chevelles, and it came from the factory with the buyer’s choice of two different transmissions, which basically offered the difference between automatic and manual. This article takes you between the two transmission types to give you an overview of the 4-speed Muncie M-22 Rock Crusher and the GM Turbo-Hydramatic.

’67 Chevy Chevelle Engine Options

The Chevelle is a rumbling car (in a good way) that will not be overlooked when it’s thundering down the road, and it’s practically a given that people notice this car when it’s coming down the road. The car makes a surprising sound, and according to My Classic Garage, there were eight different engine options offered in this stunning machine.

  1. 230 cid 6-cylinder
  2. 250 cid 6-cylinder
  3. 283 cid V8
  4. 327 cid V8 (275 hp)
  5. 327 cid V8 (325 hp) (The difference in horsepower came from the different carbs offered.)
  6. 396 cid V8 (325 hp)
  7. 396 cid V8 (340 hp)
  8. 396 cid V8 (375 hp) (Again, the diff came from the carbs.)

Muscle Car Station Wagons?

A total of 369,133 Chevelles rolled off the production line in 1967, with 85,700 of those being 6-cylinder models and 283, 400 being V8 models, according to Old Ride. When you think of Chevelle muscle cars, you may think first of the classic ‘Coke bottle’ shape of the ’67 Chevelle, but this ride was also produced as a pretty cool, powerful station wagon. Another 27,300 units of ’67 Chevelles were produced as station wagons, with 5,900 of those being 6-cylinders and 21,400 being V8s.

1967 Chevelle Tranny Options

Several different transmission options were also offered in the ’67; the 3-speed standard, the Muncie M20 4-speed which had a wide ratio, the M21 4-speed which had a closer ratio, and the 4-speed M22 Rock Crusher. The automatic tranny options included the Powerglide automatic and the Turbo-Hydramatic RPO M40.

Turbo-Hydramatic Transmission

The Turbo-Hydramatic is the automatic version that came in the ’67 Chevelle when for drivers who didn’t not want to spend all their time changing gears. The Turbo-Hydramatic delivered a smooth shifting experience with no extra effort. This was a popular, simple way to drive for drivers who preferred not to drive a manual.

Rock Crusher Tranny

The Rock Crusher is the beefiest of the manual shifting options offered on the 1967 Chevelle.  This transmission that was made to handle the power of the Chevelle engine, and you will get the heavy response from the engine that muscle car enthusiasts look for with this transmission.

Rock Crusher or Turbo-Hydramatic: Which Is Right For You?

When you’re buying or rebuilding a ’67 Chevelle, and you’re ready to choose a transmission that’s best for you – you might select one or the other based on your driving style. You may prefer an automatic if you are taking off on long road trips or using your classic machine as a daily driver to go to work. Or, you may choose a manual when you are driving for pleasure or you simply prefer the synchronized dance of engaging the clutch and shifting the gears on your own.

General Motors gave us all a gift when they created this car, and you’ll find that both styles of transmissions are perfect for different driving styles. Choose your favorite, and you’ll feel more confident behind the wheel, and you get to enjoy the heady roar of the Chevelle’s powerful engine every time you take to the streets.

1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra: The Foundation

The Ford Fairlane was a full-size American car manufactured from 1955 through 1961, and then it was made into a mid-sized car, which was produced by the Ford Motor Company from around 1962 until 1971. The name of the Fairlane Cobra model comes from the Fairlane property of Henry Ford Lane directly.

1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra Jet

Information on the ’69 Ford Fairlane Cobra

The V8 engine in the model range of this car took a different position. In 1955-1958 the most expensive model as well as equipped “Ford” was the Ford Fairlane. Since 1962, the name has been produced using a mid-sized car model by independent manufacturers within the compact Ford Falcon and Ford Galaxie and Ford Custom.

The First Generation Ford Fairlane Cobra Jet

In 1968, the muscle car was again modernized, now the headlights were horizontally positioned, and the design was more aggressive. This generation was significantly larger than the previous ones, although the wheelbase remained the same. There were added the Sportsroof (body fastback ) and luxury Torino. The 1968 model was produced in Argentina until the early 1980s. Since 1969, a powerful Cobra package was proposed, aimed at competing with Plymouth Road Runner. Hence the birth of the 1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra

’69 Cobra Jet Specs

The basic model engine type was offered with a 302-m block (5 hp) and a mechanical three-speed gearbox, optionally with 390 m (6.4 l) or 428 m (7 h.) Blocks. The Cobra had a standard 428 block (335 declared hp), as an option the rear axle with a ratio of 4.3: 1, separate seats, a clock, a tachometer, an air intake on the hood and disc brakes in front with a vacuum amplifier.

The Cobra Jet Ram Air 429

In 1970, the 1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra became even larger, the wheelbase increased by one inch. On the “Cobra” appeared 429 block (360-370 claimed hp, depending on the installed heads of the unit). The Cobra Jet Ram Air 429 was offered with the Ram Air system (inertial air pressure from the air intake on the hood), and the Drag Pack.

Intro to the Ford Torino Legacy

From the middle of the year, the so-called “Ford Falcon 1970 ½” was produced, which was a body of Fairlane with a minimal finish. For 1971, the names Falcon, Fairlane, ’69 Fairlane Cobra , and Fairlane 500 were abolished, all medium-sized “Ford” got the name Ford Torino.

First Year American Muscle Car Legend: the 1964 Pontac GTO

The Gran Turismo Omologato (GTO) has a charming story behind its development, in which John DeLorean dropped a 389 cubic inch engine in a Pontiac Tempest as an experiment – just to see how it worked. According to the legend, upper management thought they would never sell so much as 500 GTOs and didn’t like that the GTO exceeded ten pounds of body weight for each cubic inch of engine displacement, but eager customers had ordered over 5,000 of these mid-sized muscle cars.
