You can not be denied the sale of a home because of a misdemeanor conviction from 1971. To do so would violate certain anti-discrimination laws relating to fair housing.
If you are denied the home you can bring a complaint against the HOA either by suing them or by bringing a complaint under the Fair Housing Laws in Florida. You can als bring a complaint against the HOA through the federal HUD agency.
The most likely scenario is that the purchase will go through without a hitch and the HOA will never look into your backgound to that degree.
