The History of Chevrolet:

Chevrolet began as an experimental car shop in Detroit, which gradually expanded throughout the decades until World War II. Many the manufacturing facilities and assembly plants were converted to military or postwar production in order to meet demand, with many more on the way.

Louis Chevrolet, a well-known automobile driver, was hired by William C. Durant, the founder of Buick Motors Corporation, to create a vehicle that individuals could buy in 1909. In 1911, the Chevrolet Motor Company of Michigan was founded and began producing vehicles the following year. In 1912, "Chevrolet Motor Company" was changed to "Chevrolet." It went through several expansions as the vehicle's popularity increased, culminating in it becoming a part of General Motors in 1918.
From 1931 until 1941, Chevrolet was the world's top auto brand. From 1927 until 1931, Chevrolet sold more than a million automobiles every year.

Chevrolet had a significant impact on the American automobile industry throughout the 1950s and 1960s.


Chevrolet’s 1966 Nova SS

The Nova had been around since 1962, but the name was initially used as an upgraded trim level for the Chevrolet II, which debuted that year. Since 1963, the Nova Super Sport (SS) has been the top-of-the-line model. This remained true when the restyled 1966 models were introduced, but for the first time, the Nova SS may be considered a full-fledged muscle vehicle, provided it came standard with the new Turbo Fire engine.

The Chevrolet IIs were released in 1962 to compete with the Ford Falcon, which had been on the market for two years. The Chevrolet II was a highly basic model intended to satisfy many Americans' need for an inexpensive small car. The Nova 400 was developed to supplement the basic models, and the Nova SS was made as the line's sports model (the Super Sport). Throughout the car's first era, engine power increased, and the Turbo Fire was a welcome addition for 1966 because many American drivers were demanding more power as the muscle car period began to take off.

The Nova SS, on the other hand, was only available as a two-door coupe. Although the additional $159 cost of the Nova 400 over the base model might explain why there were about 21,000 Nova SS variants produced, it is possible that this car had something to do with its popularity. The Nova SS was the only model available with front bucket seats in place of the bench seat on all earlier models.
