1969 Nova Parts and Restoration Information

1969 Nova Specifications


The 1969 Chevy Nova was practically identical to the previous model. Perhaps the most significant change in 1969 was that the vehicle dropped its “Chevy II” badging and was officially called the Chevrolet Nova.

Two new transmission options also premiered this year from the dealer, the low-cost Torque-Drive and Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission. The Torque-Drive was based off the Powerglide and was only made available on the four and six cylinder engines. The 1969 Super Sport Nova’s were also the first to have front disc brakes as a standard option. Despite the new features rolled out by Chevrolet the most exciting news for Nova fans would be the introduction of the very limited Yenko Nova 427.  These packages were only installed by Yenko dealerships and featured a 427 cubic inch\450 horse power engine. Only 37 Yenko Nova’s were built in 1969 making it a very limited and sought after dealer option.
