Prepare to be amazed by the incredible discovery of a true survivor car: a 1973 Chevrolet Nova that has miraculously maintained its originality and low mileage. As one of Chevrolet’s most successful models, the third-generation Nova underwent significant restyling in 1973, featuring a hatchback design and bulkier bumpers. Now, this remarkable Nova is up for grabs on eBay, offered by a dealer in Omaha, Nebraska, with its location noted as Canon, Georgia. Priced at $20,000, the seller has also activated the “Make Offer” function, making this an opportunity that’s hard to resist.
For Nova enthusiasts like myself, this car holds a special place in our hearts. Having owned a 1970 edition for 11 years, I can attest to the fun and nimble nature of these cars. However, by 1973, the Nova had grown beefier, reflecting changing times and preferences (in my opinion). Surprisingly, car buyers disagreed with my sentiment, as the Nova saw a significant increase in sales, with 20,000 more units sold compared to the previous year. The featured 1973 Nova proudly retains its original 307 cubic inch V8 engine, which is believed to be numbers-matching and untouched.
This Nova’s authenticity is striking, with no signs of any repaint or engine rebuild. Although the engine sports a different intake manifold, possibly to accommodate a 4-barrel carburetor, it remains true to its original form. Power is delivered through a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission, as the legendary 2-speed Powerglide had already been phased out. The body flaunts its original white paint, showcasing its timeless appeal, while the well-preserved green interior exudes a captivating charm. Despite a small tear on the passenger-side front seat, it remains in remarkable condition.
With an incredibly low odometer reading of just 25,800 miles, one can’t help but wonder if this Nova’s mileage has turned over. The seller acknowledges a minor rust spot, although its exact location is unspecified. According to the seller, this Chevy runs flawlessly and likely requires no significant mechanical attention. Everything is reported to be in working order, except for the gas gauge, which can easily be managed by refueling every 200 miles. Don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to own a time capsule Nova that defies the test of time and promises an unforgettable driving experience.
