i dont know how many were made but i know you dont see a lot of them at all. and they are very rare because most peolpe who bought novas with a 4 cylinder were women. and they dont like the whole idea of a manual trans.


You probably have a 2-door sedan right? If I am correct in this assumption, you have a nova that was in the 100 series ( which was the cheapest Nova model offered) The four cylinder was an option for Novas, as the 194 c.i. straight six was the standard engine. Your car was probably the least expensive Nova you could purchase back in 62. As for the manual 3-speed transmission, it was standard equipment on all Nova models, but the 2-speed powerglide transmission was $50 option. Not sure if you want to know the color of your interior, but the aqua was know as Artesian Turquise In short, you have a very low production car, most of these were probably made for women, or for Telephone companies for cheap, efficent, transportation.
