We normally wouldn’t get too excited about an old Nova, but we happened to run across this one and started to read the story posted by the seller because it sounded like a barn find. Turns out it was a classic old lady garage find and that this 1972 Rally Nova only has 48k miles on it. This survivor is located in Portland Oregon and is listed for sale on eBay with the bidding starting at $200.
We recommend that you read the seller’s story in their own words, but basically they became friends with a nice old lady that had an old car parked in the garage who would not sell. Eventually the lady’s health took a turn for the worse and it was time to get rid of the car. Of course they thought of their old friend who gladly accepted. The story is convincing and the car does still look like new.
Besides being all original and in excellent condition, this Nova is special because it is equipped with the optional Rally package which was basically an upgraded suspension. Even though 33k were sold with this option, we doubt there are many left in this condition. The 350 V8, bucket seats, and extensive documentation make this deal even sweeter. If the reserve is not crazy high, this could be a great opportunity to pick up one of the most original Novas around.
