i really miss the 76' Nova i had. sold it to pay off my wedding and was in the middle of a career change.:(

well really would like another project(so i stop messin with my F250 DD/Tow rig)
found this little badboy for sale. guys is asking $500obo
1969 Nova (Rolling Chassis)
body is damn good shape

even if i dont mess with it for a while, i would still like to have it as a project to. wanna build a street/strip car out of it. i figure it is a solid foundation.

I would pass on this deal. To much is missing and who knows whats under that rattle can primer.

I gave $500 for my 68 Bird and it was in worse shape than that. Really depends on how much time and work you want to do.

If its a disc brake car than its worth it.

$500 for a rolling chassie isnt too bad.... But its stripped and no glass (1k) there in new stuff for sure, trust

Is a 12 bolt? Is it an AC car? ya know the basic questions.

What are your plans..... tube chassie drag car? or resto weekend crusier.?

If you want a full out drag car go for it.... if not man that is a lot of money and time to make it a weekend bruser.

I would find something in a lil better shape than that. I see you are in New Orleans, I'm not that far from you. Trust me you can find better than that.

That would have been the perfect car for me 5 years ago.

Thats worth 500 bucks all day. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I needed another project.

Definitely worth $500 in that apparent condition (meaning, no major holes or rust, as far as the pics show). These are popular cars and nice ones are expensive, plus they hold their value as well as comparable A & F bodies of that era.

I'm a big fan of '68-'72 Novas, and what's great is they have huge aftermarket resto support, just like a Chevelle/Camaro of that era. Parts sorucing won't be hard, unless you're insistant on swap meet deals.

Personally, I'd want to buy something much more complete, but if you really want a ground-up project, this looks to be a good choice.

FYI.... just looked at the pics again and noticed that the front bumper and sidemarker appear to be from a '70+, not a '69.
