While performance fans often gravitated to the aggressive Super Sport package, savvy buyers opted for a somewhat less flashy Nova with the RPO L79 327 CI V-8 rated at 325 HP. Rated 350 HP in other applications, the L79 327 was a high-winding and durable power unit, renowned today as one of the finest high-performance engines ever designed and built. Available only with a 4-speed manual transmission, the L79 featured free-breathing cylinder heads with 2.02-inch intake/1.60-inch exhaust valves, an aluminum intake mounting a 600 CFM Holley 4-barrel carburetor and chromed air cleaner, 11:1 compression and high-performance hydraulic cam—the first offered from an American auto manufacturer.
