    1974 Nova SS

    The local used car lot has a tempting little gem on the back row - a decent "driver" '74 Chevy Nova that appears to be an original SS 350/automatic. It's also a hatchback, which is fairly rare for the SS that year. The car has an Earl Scheib $75 paint job but appears structurally solid, with no obvious major rust issues. Pretty nice interior with recovered bench seats. Floor-shifted three-speed automatic. The 350 is probably not original - and the aluminum intake & four-barrel carb definitely aren't.

    They are asking $3,900.

    I'm tempted to at least go drive the thing. If the 350 isn't worn out (or overcammed and too lumpy for my wife to deal with) and the rest of the car is in solid shape, it could be a fun rat car to knock around. It's been there for several months, too - so I'd bet they'd take a cash offer closer to $3,000 or even less.

    I have the '74 VIN decoder, so I will run by the place to see whether it's a real '74 SS, for openers - and not just a base Nova someone glued SS badges on!
