1971 Chevrolet Nova

The 1971 Nova remained similar to the previous year, with the exception of the loss of simulated fender vents and the discontinuation of the 396 engine option for the SS, thus allowing the 350 engine to step up to the top engine option. 1971 also saw the introduction of the Rally Nova, an exciting new sporty trim level option that included black or white stripes that ran the length of the car and around the back, a Rally Nova sticker on the driver's side of the hood, and Rally wheels. The Standard engine was the 250 six-cylinder engine and the 230 six-cylinder and153 four-cylinder engines were no longer offered. The 307 and 350 V8s were carried over from 1970 and all engines featured lowered compression ratios to enable the use of unleaded gasoline as a result of a GM corporate mandate that took effect in model 1971 production.
