  • 1975 Plastic fantastic aka Corvette

    So I didn't "need" another project. But sometimes deals come along that throw need right out the window.

    it needs assembly, and that is all I'm going to do. Assemble, paint, sell, fund 1950 Sedanet.... of course, I said something like those words about my Buick (which I've owned for 8 years).... so without further adieu.

    here is a very good project i am unable to complete so definitely my loss your gain. tons of cash has been spent with tons new. the car needs mostly paint and assembly. the engine is a small block that has been rebuilt. jeggs heads vortec style with roller rockers. i think more than 2k in heads and machining dont remember. the engine is about ready to go, rebuilt turbo 350. new exhaust etc etc. interior is apart and needs carpet. everything is very nice and i sourced good seats and dash stuff that are all in included and nice stuff. body is super straight and just needs a scuffing and paint. with a little bit of time you will have a great car. tons more new. let me know.

    Paint it bright red. With those wheels, you'll have every male stripper in town beating down the door to buy it.

      My choice would be sell Sledanette to build Buick powered 10.5 tire Vette.

        Uurlppp......... thanks man.

        First thing in the morning, and I didn't bring my toothbrush to work. Now I have to taste aftervomit for the rest of the day, fantastic.

        Its the wheels, I just can't get past them.

        But seriously, you'll probably make good money with your plan. It will just go to show that having money to spend doesn't mean you have class or taste to spare.

            the wheels will be first to go - funny, I'll make money on that too.... there is a market for 20s (as unbelievable as that sounds)

              always wanted a Vette...not to keep..but to drive for a bit then get rid of...could be a fun car to drive for a while then unload...

                  Take the 20's off, install 24's and bring it to Portland and sell to the Donk crowd! It will probably be the first Donked Corvette!

                            haters, y'all are just a bunch of haters

                            honestly, I'm not in love with this style of Corvette because they ride like crap (you sit over the rear axle, so your tush goes up and down at a higher rate than your feet - it's a weird feeling)


                            And I am planning on getting it done in time for Portland (for those counting - Portland swap meet is April 14-16) - drive it down, park it, sell it. Nice rally wheels, black interior, new paint, new interior and it will go away pretty quickly... maybe even for a premium.

                              it's time to walk that thin line between doing it right, and doing it only right enough to still leave a profit margin.

                              hopefully the jeggs engine is in fact a jeggs unit- that may help sell it. red paint, black interior and classic wheels, hopefully make several hundred on the 20s - gawd those things are awful.
                              There's always something new to learn.
