The first car that Paul H ever purchased with his own money after graduating college was a 1973 Nova SS hatchback. Even long after parting with that Nova, it remained Paul’s favorite car.
The desire to own another eventually took hold and Paul began the search for a suitable candidate early in 2017. By June of 2017, the restoration shop he had contacted found one, albeit in rough shape.
It is currently running a crate 350 small block engine with fuel injection, paired to a 4-speed manual. The restoration progressed smoothly, and Paul now has another ’73 Nova SS hatch that he can enjoy as both a daily driver and as a weekend show car.
