Here is the Nova Backstory….
In 1983 Vauxhall replaced the outgoing Chevette with the brand new Nova hatchback. The compact and boxy super mini was available in 3 and 5 door configuration, with all models for the European market built in Spain.
In Britain the Nova proved to be a hit and went head to head with the likes of the Ford Fiesta, the Rover Metro and the Peugeot 205. And if you grew up in the 1980s or 1990s, the chances are either someone in your family owned a Nova, or you knew someone who did.
The Nova was popular as it was a cheap car both to own and maintain and for many families up and down the country, it was the ideal runabout motor. Fast forward to today and the trusty Vauxhall Nova is now a very rare sight on UK roads, with fewer than 20 believed surviving. The example on sale here with Car and Classic is a remarkable two owner survivor that has covered just 80,534 miles in 30 years.
