Description: All offers will be considered. The $50,000 is just a high starting point. However, any knowledgeable collector knows if this car was a 1967-1970 Camaro, Corvette, or Chevelle SS with this actual mileage and condition, buy it now would be higher than $50k and reasonable. Do not make offers if you are not willing to pay. Likely, the nicest survivor condition in the world for a 1970/1971 model year SS Nova with this kind of actual mileage! This is last year for higher horsepower Nova with 12 bolt rear end--very low production compared to 1970! $2000 deposit due immediately, full payment due in 3-business days.

Once in a life time find on this genuine 1971 Nova SS Triple Black 4-spd 12 bolt car. 35,000 Actual miles. You will likely never see another one in your life time that is not restored in this condition as an example of how they really were when they came from GM. Amazing time capsule! There were less than 3975 1971 Nova SS cars built with Muncie 4speed trans and 12 bolt rear axle out of the 194,000 Nova produced in 1971. This is less than 3%. There were over 13,000 SS 4speed Novas produced in 1970, so 1971 is a more rare car. This car deserves to go to a collector who can put it up in a "cocoon" type of environment where it can be further preserved and appreciated. Someone that realized how few cars are left like this in the world that are nearly 50 years old. This is likely the lowest documented mileage early Nova SS you will find on the market place, and I suspect even if you find one with this sort of mileage or less, it will not be in as good of condition if it has not been restored. This Nova was assembled by GM with the highest horsepower engine package available that could be ordered in 1971! More information to come! All original GM metal dated coded, no signs of ever being wrecked, not even any dents to panels I have noticed. Appears to be all original paint! Does not need restored and has never been restored. Can supply correct wheels and lower air shocks and remove traction bars if desired!

1970 was last year for big block. This Nova has the highest hp small block available that could be ordered for 1971: the last year for 12 bolt rear end and the higher hp engines. The factory engine GM put in the car is rated only 20hp lower than the 1969 Z/28 DZ small block engine. Not too bad! Because this is such a pure survivor car and likely the nicest unrestored condition with this sort of mileage example in the world, options do not really matter at this point. The 12 bolt, factory triple black code 19 Tuxedo Black, 4-speed Muncie pedal car are just options as a cherry on top. Anyone with enough money can buy and have a restored concours car. Very few collectors can have or find one like this unrestored in this condition with so much of the car untouched and still like the GM Willow Run plant put it together 48 years ago!

"It is not the car or its options so much that have impressed me. It is its mileage and condition. I am absolutely positive mileage is correct and the interior is in condition of lets say a 2017 Camaro with 35,000 miles that has been well cared for. Also the car like on fuel system has that vapor can in trunk behind back seat and all these little things that have never been played with or removed and they are like new condition without even surface rust. The factory jack in trunk has the gold factory cadium plating on it and not even discolored or pitted. The burlap and fabric under the seats is like new from a fabric shop and springs under seats are not rusted. Wiring under dash radio dash speaker look like GM just put them in a few years ago. The marker light assemblies in the trunk and wiring look brand new with gm tags still on the wiring.Seat belts look brand new--plastic is pure white on marker light bodies in trunk. This car is a time capsule. Must be seen to appreciate it. Lets forget what brand and horsepower it is, it is the condition of these 48 year old GM original parts that impresses me. I have bought NOS 48 year old parts still in GM boxes that have aged and pitted and discolored more than most parts on this car! I guess this last sentence will most likely sum it up!"

This is what I wrote to Jerry McNeish on this car. Better photos to come. Just got it home today. I have also contacted Patrick Glen Nichols of Muscle Car Barn Finds on this car and invited him to come film the car!

"Jerry, this is off subject but I was fortunate to acquire a 35,000
actual original mile 1971 Nova SS 12 bolt car triple black 4-speed
Muncie car. The title is actual just issued from state of IN and the
odometer matches. The car appears to have all original paint and sheet
metal, no rust, and interior looks almost like it was never sat in.
There are two build sheet in the car on under front seat and one
under rear seat. The trunk is like brand new with GM speckle as is
under the dash and dash panel and the metal heater box--like new. I
have never seen a car so old so well preserved. They only built around
3,000 4speed SS Novas in 1971 with 4-speed out of around 200,000 total
built that year. The car has the old craiger blue cap wheels on it and
traction bars and air shocks raised high. I am not sure how to handle
this car. It has original floor mats and seat belts, headliner, etc
etc are MINT, not even discolored. There are a few places on inside
door edges paint is a little thin but no rust yet. I am not sure how
to preserve this car without harming its untouched unmolested
features. Maybe I should just leave it alone and advertise it how it
is without putting factory type wheels on it, removing traction bars,
and putting a little paint on n inside of door edges etc. It is a
triple black car and trim tag matches. Do you have any recommendations
on what do do with this car and where to advertise or market it. Would
it be good to have this car documented? I have seen low mile 45-50
year old cars before, but never one in this nice of condition for an
unrestored pure survivor car. Couple photos attached. The truck deck
lid even still has the original dealer who sold it new, it appears on
the trunk showing it has never been painted. I will pull NCRS sheet on
it--I am confident it will match dealer with metal name plated screwed
on the trunk. Still lacquer paint on the car and it is not all spider
checked up like most--paint is actually very nice--would buff up to
look better than many "restored cars". The dash cluster, heater
controls and glove box are all like new clear and clean without
pitting. Perfect black paint without scratches or fading on dash and
glove box and heater steel box. Headliner, package tray, dash pad, all
interior I believe to be 100% factory including seat covers, and in
superb condition. All the factory decals and stickers are all still on
the cars doors, truck deck, glove box, etc. Pretty neat. Some one did
add Sun tach and hurst shifter. Boot , bezel, and carpet all look to
be original. The interior is so nice if one put new reproduction
interior in the car it would not look as good as the GM stuff in it
now. It is that nice and that preserved somehow. Must have been in
climate controlled building with dehumidifier. Chrome and stainless
are all beautiful and the doors should perfect, panels fit perfect
with GM shims, window glass looks to all be factory and not scratched
and all the door felts and fuzzies are beautiful. Windows roll down
tight and nice like a new one. Horn and all gauges work. Just rolled
over to 35,000 miles from 34,000 actual original. Rear end is dated a
few weeks before trim tag body date, trans I still have to check to
see if VIN is in it, most likely. Thinking this car was a drag
toy for a few years in the 1970's and then put away for decades in a
very good environment. Funny thing is it was sold to me at an action
and title is recently issued IN title in a banks name. Car was sold
new in IN and has remained in IN its entire life. The title shows a
former title number so maybe I can find out some owner history. I
bought at an auction and no one there seemed to realize this car was
actual mileage car until I asked to see title after looking at it and
realized this car was not a restoration car, but low mile survivor
car. Thinking the bank who showed on title as seller and owner was
liquidating someone's estate. So, I have little owner history
information at this point."

This car has never been hacked. Original radio with original speakers.
Wiring under dash unmolested and looks like new. Fuel tank appears to be
original with original fuel lines and vapor can behind rear seat in truck
still present and looks like new. GM inspection stickers still on dash cluster.
Appears dash and cluster and radio have never been removed from the car. Appears
seats were never removed from the car. I did pop up only the lower back seat
portion to look for build sheet. One is there wrapped around seat frame. Left it
there undisturbed. No signs of rodents or any articles under back seat. Appears
the back seat was not used. Looks like it was never sat in. Does not even need
cleaned under rear seat--no food or pens or coins under back seat--clean just
just like it left the GM line. All GM original paper and floor insulation under back
seat and metal like brand new. All original GM dated seat belts mint like new,
including the GM shoulder belts clipped on headliner--headliner is mint!! Bottoms of
seats, springs, and seat burlap in MINT condition. Almost hard to believe the interior
is original. However, I assure you it is!
