The Nova Super Sport was transformed to a performance package for 1968, one of the smallest muscle cars ever fielded by Detroit now included a 295 hp 350 cu in V8, priced at US$312. This is the same two-door Nova that Dana's parents crammed themselves, Dana, his brother, his sister and visiting grandparents from Japan into for a road trip from San Francisco to Disneyland.
