Topic: 1975 Chevy Nova caged roller Temecula, CA $1200

Looks like it's a legit cage that will pass Lemons tech and then some.

If someone needs eyes on this, I can go take a look-see and possibly pick up for short term storage.

Nice car, but more a Nova derivative like skylark/century.

I can't find it in the rules - how thick does the plywood under the driver's seat/footwell need to be to pass tech?

Can confirm the presence of Portholes on the front fender, so that, at least, is Skylark. Century was a bigger car. Buick’s Malibu...

Pretty sure the "Buick Nova" was an Apollo. I think my Sunday School teacher had one way back when.  They didn't sell many, Lemons may not have had an Apollo before.

Back of my mind, I'm thinking:
Nova
Omega
Ventura
Apollo

Re: 1975 Chevy Nova caged roller Temecula, CA $1200

The “Buick Nova” of this era, 1975-79, was always a Skylark as a coupe, and from 76-79 as a sedan, so yes, if that fender was from a 1975 Buick sedan, it was an Apollo. All other years of coupes or sedans were Skylarks.

Not that this wouldn’t be a good “Apollo and Dionysius” theme, regardless.
