62

62 convertible because I own one. But a friend would let me drive his new 65 in high school. Loved them ever since.

What is your favorite 1st gen Nova?

I like the 63 but the favorite has to be 64 because it comes with V-8 and five lug

That part might have come from a 65 sedan I parted out years ago.

Has to be

...a '65. For the longest time, I thought all the other years looked just kind of wrong, while everyone else thought the '65s looked wrong.

First year for 12 bolt, 327, only am/fm/multiplex...they are kind of a traditional orphan year car. Some 1st gen stuff, and then some 2nd gen. Try getting the right gas cap for one....

64; 1st yr V8 and my wife and I were born in 64

Good things were born in 64, my II, wife and myself, Ha Ha Ha!!! I really like the way the car looks front & rear ends are really simple with nice grille, single headlights along with the way the lines are along the sides to me really goes from front to back thoughtfully, good job GM engineers!

I have a 64 but I love the 65 front end. The headlights are a bit funny but the grill and bumper signal lights are awesome. Not a fan of the reverse lights on the 65 though.

I like them all lol

I am partial to 65, always have been. I was looking for a 65 when I found my first 62.

Looks like everyone likes the 63. The only thing I dont like is the wide moldings below the body line. Without the beltline trim they are fine. Not that I would turn one down, just might have to do some welding

65 Chevy II

Because i had one when i was a teen and had a blast with it. Had Lots of fun race nights in that car. I had many others over the years, but this one always stuck in my mind. So i found another one a few years ago, and it's a basket case. Not sure what i was thinking I found it kinda local which was cool. This is going to be my Gasser project that i started for myself. . The really Cool thing is after looking this one over, i think it could be my old 65 from when i was a teen.
