Question 1 1972 K code Nova SS and 1 1972 Nova D code 6cyl

Noticed both have A52 on last line of cowel tag.Next to the A52 on the K code SS Nova cowel tag is M2.Could that mean 4 speed because the car was a original 4 speed.On the 6cyl cowel tag next to the A52 is G3.The G3 is a power glide car.Also I believe A52 stands for bench seat which they both are.

Think so. The code on my build sheet designates M20 for 4spd tranny.
Checked my cowel tag and can't find any #'s like that though

The A52 i believe tells that the car came with a bench seat and the code next to that tells about exterior trim.My 72 has A52 also, which has a bench seat and next to that i have letter A.

Originaly bench. The original bench seat, back seat, have been redone with year one stuff as well as new door panels,carpet, headliner and sail panels. I do have a set of high backs that need recovering, a console with guages and the speedo with tach that the fellow I bought the car from threw in with the deal. Thinking I'll keep it bench, but it's cool to have the option though.

Hey, my father in law just bought a 72 SS 4 speed bench seat car too.
Are the bench seat cars rarer? What are they worth in good shape? His is all there and drives and all, but it needs some attention. He paid $9,500 for it. Is that in the ballpark?

It's got all doc's exept for protecto plate, including build sheets orignial bill of sale, Arizona and California plates etc. I'm the third owner. Currently frame-off.....Taking my time.(and most of my money) Car has all original sheet metal, original drive train,AC, 72' rally wheels PS, PDB, 4spd. 65 65 is Orange flame.

My father-in-laws doesn't have the original 350. It is a replacement 350, but still has everything else. Built at Willow Run, Sequoia Green with a dark green bench interior. Now it is navy blue with a black interior with bucket seats. We are actually going to pick the car up next Saturday. It was a Philly car, sold to a girl in Maryland, now it is going back to the Philly area.

64ss... I would'nt think bench seat is all that rare but in my mind, I think they are cool in their own right. Bench seat Nova.... The original grocery-getter! I don't think the price is out of line. Pic's would be cool!
