Okay guys, I've got the 76 in the driveway, but I've been offered a 1971 Nova. Pretty much a basket case. Needs floorpans, some work on the quarters and fenders and a few small rust spots in the trunk. There's no motor or transmission. Of course the hood will be reaplaced with a cowl iinducted hood, so I wouldn't really care that this hood has a small amount of rust along the fron edge. The interior is all there except the headliner, but of course it's not in great shape.

So basically, I would be buying a shell.

The price, $1000. The guy won't get off of this price, so I can't get it any cheaper.

What do you think, is it worth it?

I know this thread is useless without pictures, but the car is in his garage and I can't get to it before the weekend and that's when he wants to complete the sale.

So, as far I can tell, the car has good subframes, most of the sheetmetal is in good condition, all the glass is in good shape, doors are in decent shape with just a few rust spots that will need a patch. I will probably need an engine bay wiring harness, brake lines, emergency brake system, fuel lines, probably a gas tank too, some work on the fenders a llittle work on the quarters and a new grille.

Tell me I'm getting the steal of a lifetime, that this is better than finding an all original Yenko Nova in an old lady's garage.

Okay, now that I've got that out of my system, what do you think?
