1970 Nova Parts and Restoration Information

1970 Nova Specifications

100_0585

The 1970 Nova changed very little from the previous year featuring mainly stylistic changes. New side markers and taillight lenses gave the 1970 Nova a slightly different look from the 1969 Nova.

1970 would become the final year that the 396 engine was an available option. The 350 cubic inch 300 horse power would become the replacement for the top performance engine option. Only a small number of Novas produced in 1970 would use the 396 engine.

Once again Yenko dealerships would deliver a high performance Nova which remained highly sought after.  Only 175 1970 Nova’s would be converted by Yenko Chevrolet, continuing to make them very hard to come by.
