Here's the deal. We all know that 62-65 and 66-67 are pretty much the same car sans sheet metal. I've been told by chassis engineers that because these years share so much aside from the body that they are all 1st gen Novas. Personally I tend to agree. Your thoughts?

No. I don't recall anyone in the Nova community ever saying that the 'generations' of Novas should broken down simply by chassis design. The '66/'67 cars' body design was such a sharp break from the first four years, most of us feel that it shouldn't be included with them.
The current usage of 'generations' was arrived at over many years of discussions by Nova enthusiasts. I think it makes talking and writing about Novas much easier than if the years were lumped into fewer categories.
