Super clean grocery getter. You can make it a muscle car, but it would almost be a shame to do it.

Gotcha. It's v. nice. I wish wikipedia provided car lengths so I can compare how long different models are...

Oh I like those hatchback Novas. I will let the real experts chime in, but that does not seem like a bad price if there is actually no rust.

Yeah but why replace door jams if there is no rust? Sounds fishy

Really. Really. If it's rust free, do it. These are getting rare-er and a crate engine would be an excellent first project for you.

A crate motor can be a pretty easy weekend job. You can do it outside.

That Nova that hasn't run for two years is worth $500 as it sits, not $2,500.

You still haven't bought anything? Cripes almighty!

$7400 for the world's cleanest 78 Nova

$6000 for a decent 74 Nova

Winner, winner, chicken dinner $7500 for a legit 73 340 Duster!

Black on Black 71 Monte Carlo for $7500

World's prettiest 72 Cutlass still at $6500

The 5.0HO/EFi Maverick is still here, too.

Cherry 74 Comet GT, with vinyl top and trunk rack

Great 302 project Comet for $2200

Neat little 69 Falcon for $5500 (I especially like the 83-85 TBird Turbo seats and center console)

Clearly though, you need to own a Cadillac Dually.

If you can't find anything out of that, you aren't serious. I'm out.

Probably need to take it for a ride. Kind of like some people do to others in forum threads.

In reply to Datsun1500:

You will need to work on it and probably swap the engine because that's the only part of the car that matters. But maybe not? We need to make more guesses.

As to the value, the only way to figure it out is to look at other cars from different years / OEM / target audience and see what those might sell for and compare them to this one.
