ELIDA — “Buying Nova now could be the smartest move of your car-buying life” read the 1975 Nova sales brochure. “Now it’s beautiful,” it added. The 1975 Chevy Nova was the most-changed Chevy car for that model year. Of course, the folks at Chevrolet maintained a close likeness to the 1968-1984 design, which was smart on their part, as the Chevy Nova was still selling well. The base price for a 1975 Nova was $3,099, marking the first time the make had ever had a base price over the $3,000 mark.
Brian Kershner, of Elida, brought his 1975 Chevy Nova SS to The Lima News’ Real Wheels Cruise-In. He has owned it for 30 years. It was his first car and he paid $650 for it. He says his favorite memories are attending a lot of car show’s.
