Hi, my friend told me that this is a picture of the car that he restored and sold for $23k. Is there anything more you can tell me about a car like this?

Its a 73-74 nova custom because of the square quarter windows and bright trim but not worth 23k. id say 15k with the wrong front end and rear. It could be 18-20k with the original front and rear.

Looks like a race car to me though... roll cage, tubbed most likely. Who knows what he done to it.

I was going to say 73 because how close the rear bumper is to the bodywork, but it has fiberglass bumpers, so who knows. Definitely a 73-74 with the front end of a 68-72.

I wouldn't pay $23K for it either.

73-74 Nova with a 70-72 (notice the marker lights) front clip. Also looks like he might have took the shocks off the back bumper to pull it into the back of the car.

The 70-72's had marker lights in the bumpers, but 73-74 had square rear windows?
why would you mix things up like that?
The 68-72 is much more popular than the 73-74 Novas. The 73-74 had a less appealing bumper,grill, and tail panel so alot of people swap the front clip in favor of the much sportier 68-72 Nova. Once this is taken care of most people don't notice the larger quarter windows unless they are Nova gurus. With prices of earlier novas getting higher, the 73-74 are now starting to get pulled out of barns and weeds and getting restored or customized to look like the older ones.

Thanks for all the info. I'm basically trying to figure out if he's telling the truth or not, lol! He's a great friend and we love him to pieces but some of his stories are just too good to be true... :rolleyes:

He's offering to help fix up my 1976 4-door and while I'd really like his help/advice... If he's not telling the truth about this car then I don't really know what to think, you know? It's not that I don't trust him.. I just don't want to be expecting great results like the pic he gave me and end up with something scary.

Now that I know more about that specific car I'm going to ask him more details and see if they mesh up.

Side-Note: Dude, if you happen to go to this forum and read this thread please don't be offended by this. We love you and are just doing our proper research on things ;).
