1964 because it was the first year for V8s in Novas and I like the emblems on the fenders better than on the quarter panels.

'63. Only year a factory convertible SS was available. Too bad Chevy didn't have it together enough to offer a V-8 too!!

I like the 64 because it offered a V8, 5 lug wheels, and the normal style 10 bolt rear end, but still had the older style headlight trim. The 65 eye brows are kinda ugly imo.

I prefer the 63, prolly cuz I gots 2 of em.

However the 64 are appealing since they came with the 8.2 rear and 5 lug.
