Check Out this 1963 V-8-Powered Nova Sleeper

  Just because GM didn’t offer a Chevy II with a V-8 before 1964 didn’t mean you couldn’t buy one brand new. Soon after the car debuted in 1962, GM started producing the parts necessary to make the non-ordained marriage possible.

For many buyers, the opportunity for more horsepower at a lower price was more than enough reason to check the box over the higher priced 327/375 hp fuel injected L84 V8. Consequently, with buyers selecting the big block over...
