Odd But Cool: 1973 Sterling Nova

The neat looking beast you see on the screen above first appeared in the late 60s as the Nova kit car, produced in the UK by Richard Oakes and Phil Sayers using a swoopy fiberglass body, and Volkswagen Beetle chassis with buyer provided running gear.  The same design was later branded as the Sterling, Cimbria and Purvis, and apparently you could even buy a new one a few years ago. Anyway, find this 1973 Sterling Nova offered for $7,500 in Pikeville, KY via faceblank parkingblock.
