There were a couple of them around here back in the 80s. If I wasn't ass deep in a 72 right now, I'd be all over that.

Authentication and pre-purchase inspection service still available. PM me for more information.
Still looking for that elusive 76 Nova SS.

I got this also from a guy who saw mine and is restoring one." I am restoring a 1974 Laguna S-3 454/ 4 speed and no a/c. According to my research only 85 cars rolled off of the line with those options." I proceeded to ask where he got those numbers and he replied "I got production numbers from an old National Chevelle Owners Association magazine."

Color and trim may break it down more as black and silver was another combo.

Did you guys see the questions and statements under the description on EBAY?

I have seen a lot of those in the 7-8K range. If you can get 10K for it, you did good IMO.

When I was selling it on EBAY I had several people help me with production numbers and one guy actually had numbers from an old chevelle publication that stated that there were 85 454 4spd produced that year

Nice car, $9,900, that's a good buy. These will only go up in value as they have been scraped as just and used as race cars so much that they are likely some of the rarest BB chevelles out there. With a decent size tire they look great and if you don't like the body style, they do grow on you quickly once you have one and drive it. They drive sweet.

Richard, Did the sale go through? I see the winning bidder is not a "registered user".. $9,900.00 is a good price, Especially with this economy...

Not the greatest looking car at first, but it kinda grew on me.. I wouldn't mind owning it!! Maybe if it was around $2500-$3500 when I was looking for my first car a few months back I would have bought this..
