The glossy red paint has very few imperfections as the car has been repainted recently. The chrome is all in good shape with no rusting anywhere. The doors on the car all close nicely, but they require an extra little push because of the new soft seal door moldings that have been installed. The body panels all line up properly and nothing rubs when you open doors. The glass on the car is in good shape with no pitting or chips. All of the lights and signals work as they should. The wheels are Chevy Rally wheels with aftermarket spinner caps. The front tires are brand new 195/65-15 and the rear tires are 215/65-15, both Hankooks.

The door panels all have been replaced. The car still has all of the original chrome pieces on the interior and they are a little pitted, but all present. The windows all roll up and down easily and don’t get caught up anywhere.
This car is really fun to drive. It cranks on the first turn of the key and runs great. The transmission shifts smoothly and the car drives straight down the road. The brakes stop it easily and aren’t shaky at all. It is also a pretty quick car with the cammed 350. It is still very streetable though. This car was set up to be driven on the street and does a great job at it. Thic car would make a great driver for anyone who likes this era Nova. This is a fun car that can be bought and driven home right away, nothing needs to be done to get this car up to good driver quality.
