I have all the factory parts except for the factory valve covers.
I just ordered almost a thousand dollars worth of parts to fix just about everything for this car.
New parts on order for the things that need attention but not too much does.
As I get the parts in, I will post updated photos of progress as the new parts mate to the Corvette.
Here Are the following parts I have ordered for this Corvette:

That totals out to Just Under $850.00 in parts!!!!!
If you were to take this car to a Corvette speciality shop, parts would have been
at least double the price.
Labor for all those pieces at a Corvette speciality shop would minimum be
$5000.00 if not more than this.
You buy the car say for example $8000.00 Plus parts from a Corvette shop:
$1600.00 Plus labor: $5000.00 Thats $14,600.00 Total investment!
You know and I know that those numbers are not going to make you any money
anytime soon on this car if and when you decide to sell this car.
I have eliminated 98% of the parts and labor that this car is going to need.
You may be asking yourself why such an original Car needs this many parts?
Answer: Previous Owner had NO business owning this Corvette nor anything like it.
Just the average retail of this car according to NADA is $16,165.00
With just minor cosmetic work you could easily get this car into the High retail
which is $24,570.00
Realisticly with todays bad economy $24,570.00 would, in reality, never happen
until the market picks back up steadily.
I am letting this car go for just under the low retail of the NADA guide sheet, which
This is a realistic Corvette with a realistic owner and wants a realistic price.
I can deliver the car for $1.10 per loaded mile or you can have the car shipped to
The new owner will get all of the new parts if I haven't got them installed yet.
