You could argue that the Chevy Nova is one of the best muscle cars for getting into the hobby.
There are plenty around, their prices range from a few thousand dollars to the sort of price you see here and they are a great platform to take the car in any direction you want.

This 1972 Nova is a 2009 SEMA show car, so you would expect it to be dripping in all the best parts, as you can see below.

The advantage of a car like this is that all the hard work has been done for you so you can buy and drive.
Yes, you can buy a Nova for far cheaper, but considering the money spent on this car and its condition, it’s well worth taking a second look.
