Following the comprehensive 4th generation redesign for 1975, Chevrolet’s compact, X-Body Nova featured very pleasing, European-influenced styling and remained highly popular and affordable through 1979. It also provided the basic platform for Cadillac’s highly regarded and very successful Seville. Continuing to deliver Chevy’s tradition for providing excellent value for the money, the Nova was, as always, available with an amazing array of extra-cost options and amenities. For buyers seeking luxury and style to go with the Nova’s affordability, the luxury level ‘LN’ of 1975 was succeeded by the Concours edition in ‘76, positioned directly in competition with the new Ford Granada and Mercury Monarch. Offered along all three available Nova body styles including the 2-door Coupe, Hatchback Coupe, and 4-Door Sedan, Concours features include Rosewood vinyl accents on the upper door panels, instrument panel and steering wheel, plus bumper impact strips, full wheel covers, and a fold-down front center armrest.
This impeccably original and very nicely preserved 1976 Chevrolet Nova Concours Coupe is understood to have formerly belonged to a GM dealer with proper storage and extremely limited use, and according to the seller, just 18k miles have been covered from new. Handsomely finished in White with Red interior and Red Landau top reminiscent of GM’s mid-size Colonnade models of the era, the Nova includes Rally wheels with new BF Goodrich raised white-letter tires. Desirable additional features are many, including a 350ci 4-barrel V8 engine, Turbo 350 automatic transmission, A/C, power disc brakes, power steering, Positraction limited-slip rear end, sport mirrors, tilt wheel, dual exhaust, and rear defroster. The original spare tire has never been used or out of the trunk and this extremely nice Nova Concours Coupe is understood to run great, to boot!
This car sold at Barrett Jackson Las Vegas 2013 for $10,450 back when it had just 10k miles, and we think finding another one in this condition would be virtually impossible. It’s a great fined, indeed, especially for any child of the ‘70s, like this Zero260 contributor. Nonetheless, the seller’s ask is a bit stiff, and we think ‘Fair Market’ would be about 20% less.
