1973 Chevy Nova Coupe

The Chevrolet Nova was the 7th-fastest-accelerating vehicle tested by Consumer Guide in 1973.

Our 1973 list of fastest cars is very different from our 1972 list. The primary reason for the disparity has to do with the variety of vehicles tested by Consumer Guide in the early Seventies.
