and the asking price was $4400. It was a 2-door 350 auto. Completely original except for new original type interior. Claimed 55 thousand miles. Minor rust on bottom of rear fenders behind wheel wells. It also has AC and ralley wheels and decent paint. I could see potential, but think maybe $3500 would be a more resonable price. Does this seem fair?

Wasn't '73 the first year of the bigger bumpers? (yechh) "Fair"? - who knows, only when a deal is struck can it be said what a car is "worth".

The 73's had the uglier 5mph bumpers, they also had more emissions equipment and lower compression ratios (read lower hp output). That is also the year that introduced the HEI distributor. The body style was still pretty interesting, though and if the car is in great shape and the mileage original, it could be a great driver

Almost as ugly as a Mustang to me.
73-74 Novas reminds me of bumper cars at the carnival. Way ugly.
I passed on one with no rust for $500, a year ago. Was green/green. Can you say yuuuuuuk.

I think I'll pass on the Nova. Having owned a 65 Chevy II SS in 65 an a 67 Chevy II HT (not an SS),in 67, I have a fondness for the little Chevy's. If I'm patient I'm sure I can find one of that era at a reasonable price. I drove my 69 Malibu today and decided I would like something else to use for a daily driver. My 69 doesn't have AC, (a real bummer in Arkansas in the summer), and it's a stick shift. I thought I would like a Chevelle, Nova or maybe a full sized Chevy from the early 60's to early 70's with AC and auto to drive daily and try, (for the first time in my life), to do any needed body work. It's always fun looking, and I'm in no hurry....

Hey R.E. I was just in Russellville Sunday. I was visiting my brother who lives there. Maybe next time I'm there we can get together and talk Chevelles.

I don't care for any Nova after 67. About 5 years ago, after searching for almost 2 years, I found a fair deal on a 67 nova hardtop. A daily driver/6 cylinder/ pwrglide/ perfect for a restoration for $1600. They are definately hard to come by.

I would say that 72 is last decent year. I would say that $4400 is over priced for any post 67 unless it was an SS or had some other redeeming quality, and NO rust.

Hi Jody,
Over a year ago I was driving down HW 7T and noticed a 69 Fathom Green SS in the front of a house. Was this by any chance you. I think it was about the third or fourth block south of the railroad track. I'm the only Stancliff in the Russellville phone book. If you don't mind talking to an old guy give me a call when you come down and I'll come over and check out your car. Happy New Year.

Just my opinion, but 68-72 Novas are one of the baddest musclecars out there... a 69 396 L78 Nova is about as cool as they get... an LT-1 70 Yenko Deuce ranks pretty high too...

And to make them worse, how about a hatchback?

It wasn't me. I haven't had mine to far from Crossett. I plan on taking it up there sometime. When I do I'll certainly give you a ring.
