I have a good friend here in San Francisco who is the original owner of a '68 L79 Nova that has been in his garage for many years and is in very good shape (qualifier, I have not seen the car). He is just now looking to dispose of a few of his family "treasures" and is interested in its value. Stats as I know them are as follows:
1968 Nova
Grecian Green
Two Door
L79 engine
Three speed
12 bolt rear end
50,000 original miles

For clarity, I would add that the 3 speed is a manual. As I understand it, the 4 speed option was too expensive and he only had enough cash for the L79 (remember when people bought cars for cash?). So, he opted for a three speed, which he tells me was normally sourced by Chevy as a truck transmission…? Anyway, like I said, he is interested in selling it and has no idea of its general value (nor do I).

I know the feeling about making tough calls when buying a new L-79. I had to go with the close ratio 4spd and delete the radio back then every $ counted. Jeff your 68L-79novaregestry.com site has been down a few days everything ok??
