I want to sell here, to a Nova guy. So this is only posted here for now. But if I don't get any replies in a reasonable amount of time, I'll post elsewhere as well.

Short version: 1970 4-door original 307 V8 car for sale. $600. That's what I paid. That's my price, even though I've improved it.
Save this car, so I don't have to part it out.
I'm moving on, so that my son can get into cars and hot-rodding. This car deserves to live, but I am moving on, one way or another. My son wants to build a car, just not the Nova.
NO ENGINE or driveshaft. I am keeping my engine. I need it for another project. The driveshaft was custom built and is useless to anyone else.
But you can have the car's original TH350 and crossmember. I am also keeping the powder-coated Oldsmobile wheels (and tires). But it will be a roller on the wheels and tires it came to me with.
I'm willing to work with someone to get it shipped.

And long version:
1970 4-door for sale, with every replacement part that I have available.
Originally a 307 / TH350 car. Manual drums.
$600 is stupid cheap. Even the front clip is worth that. The sub frame, alone, is worth at least half that.

I have two new projects in line and, as much as I love driving this car, I need it gone. I want to figure out the new puzzles, and have fun letting my son do the work for one of them.

I adapted to a 1PRMS SBC 350 and 3L80HD, but do still have the original transmission and crossmember (engine gone before I got the car).
I am keeping my 350 and the 3L80HD, and the custom driveshaft (I need it for one of the projects), but you can have the original TH350 if you want it.

I am keeping the tires and wheels currently on the car (unless you want to haggle for them), but it will have a mismatched set of tires on the wheels it came to me with.

Originally a manual steering car, converted to power steering. It has an Impala column and Chevelle steering wheel. (Wrong, but the right colors and looks cool.)
Manual brakes. I replaced everything up front, but the rears looked really good, so I left them alone. (I haven't had issues.)

Floor is rotten and hacked on the driver's side, but you get a replacement pan that I didn't get around to installing.
Driver's side quarter panel needs patched. I also have that (and drop-off panel, and more) to send with the car.
Window felts are toast, but I have a full set of replacements.
Trunk leaks, but I have a new seal.
I have bucket seat mounts and ~'67 GM bucket seat frames available (and I think '67 sliders), but the car does currently have poorly mounted Subaru buckets (from previous owner).
I have brake parts, shoes, bearings, seals, a spare HEI distributor (if wanted), steering rag joint, and more.
I have a spare front passenger door (w/ glass).
Spare tail light bucket.
Etc. Etc.

Any photos that I have may show the radio removed. I do have it and the speaker. It does go with the car. I don't know if it works.

Those that know this car also know that I added mid-'80s dealer-option cruise control from a G30, and some other quirky options. All of those are meant to be removed, unless you request they stay in/on the vehicle. None, whether installed or removed affect the car's reliability.

It's a good car that needs a little work, and/or is a good driver with an engine, driveshaft, and tires.
As said above, I can work with someone that needs it shipped.

If interested, PM me. I have more photos available, and we can also transition to email, text and/or voice calls if warranted.

*** The engine and transmission have not been removed yet. I'll get to it. I need to finish re-finishing our hardwood floors first. But I wanted to get this posted, because it's time for the 4-door to move on. If a deal is made, the car becomes the priority.

The day I bought it.
(That's the PO's 1938 Pontiac Touring Sedan, on the left. I'm trying to buy that car as a third project.)

Hauling a toilet. Note the quarter panel cancer.

Most recent.

I was hoping you'd be in Ohio so I could grab it. Even as parts, it's worth more than what you're asking.

This should go quickly.

Sorry, guys. I didn't see the replies here, and then had to leave town at a moment's notice. ...And then was running my butt off until now.

The car is in Southeastern Idaho.

Engine and transmission are out.
SBC 400 that came with the car is available to go back in it with minimal negotiation, if there is interest. The 400 broke a piston skirt, scored a cylinder, and needs to be bored. It is a '72 2-bolt mains block.
The TH350 should also be rebuilt. It is the original to the car and never rebuilt, but was working when removed. (~160k miles)
