About

In 1978, a co-worker offered me a chance to buy this car. She and her husband had helped her younger brother get the car by co-signing for it. As teenagers will do, he wouldn't work regular and got behind payments. They sold it to get it off of their name. I gave $900 for it which payed it off. The car, blue in color, had been wrecked on right side with a lot of bondo in it and also a damaged front left fender done just as bad with bondo. As happens with thick bondo, paint began popping off. We completely stripped all paint off. Removed all bondo. Pulled out dents within 1/8 " depth and filled with a Fiberglas/bondo product. Primed and then painted with an Oldsmobile color of Firethorn Red metallic paint. We used Gold pin stripping on sides. We didn't use the factory 'Nova' emblems on front fenders and went with gold ( from a '76 year model) Nova SS decals instead. Car was perfect inside and out when we finished with it.
Car was sold in 1980 for $2200.00.

Specs

1972 Nova SS 350 4-bbl, 4-speed with gauges in console and positraction rear end.

Factory Options

Car had a 350 gear ratio positraction rear end. Also, I think, the console with gauges may have been special order, too.

Mods

Re-painted.
