Default '72 Nova Promo?

To all the Nova nuts out there greetings. I'm fairly new to the Nova circuit and lately I'm come across a new one. I've found a 1972 Nova for sale and the guy claims it's a Nova promo car for the, at the time, 1974 Spirit of America Nova. This Nova is white with thin red and blue stripes on the hood and trunk with a red, white and blue shield on the front quarter panels and hood. I've tried to do some research about them and can't find anything yet. Does anyone out there have knowledge about this car?

David

I heard about this at one time also and if I remember how the thread ended up is that GM never released a promo car for the Spirit of America Nova as the Spirit of America Nova was for all intent and purpose a kind of promo car of its own! Now on the same note when the Spirit of America was released several dealers offered the graphic packages as factory upgrades to some of the previous years of Novas. I think one older guy said the dealership tried to sell him the graphics by telling him it was an excellent way to show his Patriotism! Also it was a way of making money while at the same time getting free advertisements out for the Spirit of America Nova.

A friend of mine had a '72 in high school, I don't know about ( actual) promo car, but this one had a red 350 2 bbl, posi rear, I can't remember if it was 10 or 12 and all the red white and blue striping along w/ badges and was one of the fastest 2bbl cars I've ever seen. His grandfather bought it new and a few years later, gave it to him.
