Joined the forum to get some more details about a 1973 Chevy Nova 307 V8 that I did a barn find on. I was going to post this in the other section however I do not have permission to.

I can't find many if any 1973 4-door Novas online, mainly just the 2-doors. Also the engine is a 307 V8.

Wanted to post here to find more information about these particular models, its history. I also was wondering how these are valued, as I mentioned I can only find the 2-doors...not sure if that impacts the value (Quick Google search/eBay) just as peace of mind (I INTEND TO KEEP, NOT SELL)

Thanks
Tom

Generally speaking, 4 doors are valued lower than their 2 door counterparts. Sometimes significantly lower, the to the point of "can't give it away". That's not to say that there aren't people out there who find higher personal value in a 4 door, or who would never even consider buying/owning a 2 door (frankly, I'm pretty bitter that GM never made a 3rd gen 4 door Nova wagon..), just that when looking at it from a pure dollars standpoint - the 4 doors are worth less.

You'll also find that any 4 door specific parts will be harder to come by, even used, and aren't likely to be reproduced, ever.

I'm not up on actual values, but a 4 door is always going to be worth less than a comparable 2 door. How much, that I don't have a clue on.

Some 1973 Nova facts. Third highest year for Chevy II/Nova production (1974 and 1963 were highest) with almost 370,000 units. 194,000 two doors built, 91,000 two door
hatchbacks and 84,300 four door sedans. Last year for the 307 V/8 CID engine, which put out 115 net horsepower. As already mentioned, 2 doors are the desirable models in the car hobby world. Even though 1973 Nova 4 doors were rarer in terms of production, that doesn't equate to greater value or desirability. The fact this car is a 4 door with a V/8 gives it a bit of a leg up over the 100HP six cylinder. Can't see the lower part of the body, but the upper part looks solid. Car was built Midnight Green with a green cloth bench seat interior.
