One Year 262 V8: 1975 Chevrolet Nova Coupe

The fourth generation Nova was released in 1973 with a “so-called” hatchback body style and restyled front and rear. The big government mandated bumpers don’t look as bad as some of the competition. Fast forward almost 50 years and now this thing looks cool. One interesting thing about this car is that it has the one-year only 262 (4.3 liter making 110 horsepower) small block which was only available in the Monza/Nova (and Pontiac Ventura) for a year before folks at GM realized it was stupid to not just put a 350 into everything. Find this 1975 Chevrolet Nova Hatchback offered for $13,500 in Walton, NY via craigslist. Tip from Cory (who mentioned he loves those flat seats).

From the seller:

1975 Chevrolet Nova
condition: good
cylinders: 8 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
odometer: 35006
paint color: yellow
size: full-size
title status: clean
transmission: automatic
type: hatchback

Factory original miles of 35,006. The ONLY modifications to it are a Pioneer Radio, Air Shocks, Chrome Wheels, Chrome Valve Covers (have originals) and Window Tinting. The paint is overall in good condition but could use a couple of touch ups, specifically small dent in passenger rear quarter panel and scratch on passenger door. Car is almost rust-free with the exception of one surface spot on the top. The interior of the car is in great condition. This car would need new tires and chrome rims touched up but overall is super clean and gets lots of attention everywhere I’ve driven it. I’ve owned this vehicle is 1988 and it’s been garage kept all those years during the nasty NY winters and never driven on salty roads. This car is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. So if you’re looking for that rare muscle car that will draw attention, please give me call or text.
