Dale Earnhardt’s 1977 Chevy Nova | 2019 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach

This is Dale Earnhardt’s ’77 Chevy Nova, and I saw it at the 2019 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. This is from the fourth generation, which was made between 1974 and 1979 (model years between 1975 and 1979). The engine is a 5.8 liter NASCAR V8 that produces 700 horsepower. The transmission is a 4-speed manual. This Nova was originally a Pontiac Ventura, but was converted to a Chevy Nova for better aerodynamics. This Nova was auctioned off for $209,000.
