RealRides of WNY #2330 - 1973 Nova

A sign in the window of this 1973 Chevrolet Nova SS(inset)tells us it’s still with its original owner, who bought it from Sweeney Chevrolet on Main Street in Clarence (now the site of the Clarence Secure Storage facility).

RealRides of WNY - 1973 Chevy Nova

An uncharacteristic (for Chevy) lack of fender-mounted engine ID emblems leave us wondering if this 1973 Chevy Nova hatchback is equipped with a six or a V-8.

Three times as many Novas had a V-8 (eithe
