Gonzo G’s 1972 Nova

Built From The Ground Up

Gonzo G’s 1972 Nova

Gonzo traveled 6 hours to get his 1972 Nova “Brown Sugar” about a year ago! It’s a numbers matching, original 307 with a cam, TH350, A/C, with 84,432 miles all original.

His father worked for Harry Mann Chevrolet in Los Angeles, CA which is where his love of cars started. When he would get home from school he would hang out with his father and all the other mechanics. He always thought he was the luckiest kid around! He got to be around Corvettes, Chevelles, and Novas. When he first saw the Novas, he got hooked.

He is going to keep this 1972 Nova original and hopes to pass it down to his grandson in the future.
