Sleepy Sleeper: 1976 Chevrolet Nova 7K Mile – $17,000

Jun 2021 | Classifinds, Malaise Monday

Pre-1972 Chevrolet Nova two-coupes continue to see strong numbers as many Baby Boomers try to relive their high school fantasy car dreams.  A very compelling alternative to those earlier higher-priced examples is this 1976 Nova currently listed here on Craigslist in Painsville, Ohio (Cleveland) claimed to have only 7,112 original miles.  Even more intriguing is what appears to be a Corvette L82 motor connected to a floor-shifted four-speed manual. Other than the Corvette-sourced “L82” badges placed on the front fenders, this car has sleeper written all over it with an asking price of $17,000. That ask is well above both the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool and Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool #1 condition values, so the jury remains out on whether a buyer will be willing to pay the premium for this seller.  If you are serious about buying this Nova, you can start the conversation by either calling or texting the current caretaker at (440) 477-9818.  When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their Nova featured here on Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1976 Chevrolet Nova. 350 4bbl. 4speed. Dual exhaust. **7,112 miles.**Needs absolutely nothing. MUST SEE. Award-winning no rust ever car. Perfect interior. $17,000.00 cash”
