what i found from http://novaresource.org/rpo_YF1.htm


Quote:
The Nova was offered in 1971 and 1972 with the RPO-YF1 Rally Nova option. In 1977 thru 1979 the Nova was offered with the RPO-Z26 Nova Rally option. The first time around, the Rally option was a pseudo musclecar. It had the look of a musclecar with stripes and rally wheels but it could not be ordered with the SS-only L48 350 4-bbl engine. You could get a 250, a 307 or the L65 350 2-bbl. This was done for 2 reasons, people who wanted the musclecar look could have it without paying for the more expensive Super Sport option. The other reason was because of the surcharges applied to owners of "real" musclecars. The SS was more expensive to insure because of the top engine. The Rally option ended after 1972 because beginning in 1973, you could order the Super Sport with any engine (250, 307, L65 350 2-bbl and the L48 350 4-bbl). You could also now order a non-SS Nova with the top L48 engine

The second time around the Rally option replaced the Super Sport option dropped after 1976 and it even carried the same code: Z26. The option was basically just a name change as it was mostly the same as the 1976 Super Sport option. It included different stripes, the grille was now chrome instead of black and the F40 suspension was no longer part of the Z26 option (however it could be ordered separately).

One common mistake made by people is they call it a "Nova RS" or a Nova Rally Sport". The word sport was never used in the Nova Rally option. The Rally Sport (or RS) option was on Camaros, not Novas. Also, unlike Camaros, you could not combine the Rally option with the SS option. This was because of the reasons mentioned above. The 1971-72 Rally was a "cheaper SS" and for the 1977-79 Rally, there was no SS option to combine with.

I hope this clears up some of the confusion surrounding the Rally options. They are special cars with a very limited run. Only 7,700 built in 1971, 33,319 in 1972, 6,901 in 1977, 6,903 in 1978 and 2,299 for 1979. For those restoring 1971-72 and 1977-79 Rallys, Stencils and Stripes Unlimited, Inc. makes reproduction stripe kits.
