Default 1974 Chevy Nova Hatchback

Im looking for a classic car to restore so I'm going to buy a 1974 Chevy Nove Hatchback. It has a 350 V8 motor. The body is straight and the motor seems to be pretty good. The only thing I would really need to take care of is the upholstery and the paint job.i know a good deal about cars to fix this up. I plan to give it a classic 1970 Chevelle SS black with white racing stripes paint job, then put black leather seats. The guy wants $4500, does this sound like a good buy. Also how much HP do you think I would be able to get this up to.

Trunk lid and rear window are all one piece, looks like a hatchback to me.

Okay now I really don't know what you meant. I thought you were questioning his car knowledge
