I have a 1976 nova that is in pretty good condition. but i am having an incredibly hard time finding the parts i need. My main problem is the fenders all the way around the car need to be replaced and the taillight housings on the car are so bad that they just crumble at the slightest touch i also need help in locating a grille.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU

Mr. Bowtie

Hi Colin, I too have a 1976 Nova Concours, am having the same problem you are having. I think it is a shame that someone like JW Nova can't help us old car lovers out a little more. Where are you from, we are from the gulf coast. email if you like we can maybe help each other out with parts. By the way we own a wrecking yard down here.

I have recently got a catalog from a place called the paddock that have a few parts for the 1976 novas that we have but just a few they mainly have things like the carpets and floor mats and a few body parts. You also might want to get in contact with classic industries they have helped me find a part for my nova that other people told me was no longer made or available now i know that the classic ind. catalog is around $5 for it and the paddock catalog is free. What does your nova look like ? I have never actually heard of a concours nova. Now i was told by one of the guys who has worked on my car that some parts off of 74–77 novas would interchange on the 76 and i have found that to be true, because me and my dad build dirt track racers and one being built right now is a olds. omega which is almost identical to my car, well i hope that this info helps and I will have to call when i get my cell phone turned back on. good luck with the car and thank you for the info you have sent to me.

Good luck finding parts. I have a 75 Nova SS. I paid $250 for a grill (used but restored) from canada. Tail lights cost me about $150 if i remember right (used from canada but mint condition) I had luck on Ebay with that stuff. I'm looking for inner wheel wells for both rear quarters (mainly right rear).

I have a 76 Nova concourse, for tail lights I used 68 Camaro Taillight assemblies just cut out a little of the metal and they will fit. Found my fenders on Ebay, the parts are out there you just have to look.

Hi Nova buddies. I have some interior and exterior parts for 75 thru 78's i will trade for a dash cluster with the factory tach from I think the Concours.If I'm wrong, correct me. I think I saw one in a picture gallery in a 77 Concours. I like the gauges instead of the idiot lights.

I've been restoring my car for the last year and getting closer to what I'd like it to be. It's a 76 Nova hatchback, 5 speed, buckets. I'm also looking for the quarter window gaskets. They are fixed windows. I can't put the interior back in until the leaks stop. It's an everyday driver. I've had it for 22 years. I love it.
