Ok so how does one find out if a nova is a SS? My understanding was that in 1962 there was no SS. If this is incorrect could someone please give some direction on it how to verify if SS or not.

Thanks

The Nova SS was first introduced in 1963. It was an option package for Nova 400 hardtops and convertibles. 1963 SS cars can be identified by a Z, Z03 or X on the cowl tag.

That is what I thought too. NO SS.

So now odd question. I have on the cowl tag under the ACC HKL-1 - the rest of the car I have been able to decode.

The car had a 194 2spd powerglide in it when I got it. It had the 400 badges and is convertible. Emery white with red interior.

Someone might be able to decode the HKL-1, but for the mostpart the 1962 cowl tag ACC codes remain a mystery. Fortunately, they changed them to a more understandable format beginning in 1963. Just for clarification, that would be Ermine White.

No SS, correct. What throws some people off is that buckets that were available in convertible.
