Question 73 NOVA SS or 73 NOVA?

I have a 1973 Nova that came with all the SS logo's,bucket seats,SS stearing wheel and floor shifter. How can you tell if it is a real Nova SS ??

Default Re: 73 NOVA SS or 73 NOVA?

a quote from "NovaResource"

1973 thru 1976 = optional package: these are the hardest years to verify. Original paperwork is really the only way. In 1973, any engine could be ordered in the Super Sport including the 250 L6. Because there was no "SS-only" engine, there is no way to verify it as real by the engine codes. Also, disc brakes were NOT part of the Super Sport package in 1973-74. All 1975-later had front discs standard but power assist was still optional.


here's the site for referencing: http://www.novaresource.org/rpo_Z26.htm
