1977 L48 - not really a find per se (it was my Dad's). Arizona car for most of its life, been in a PA barn for the last 4 years. Hopefully rust is minimal. It started right up in 12 degree weather.

As you can see, it needs some work. I'm going to start taking it apart to see where to begin. New carpet and weatherstrip has already been ordered...

performance to it and you'll be in hog heaven.:thumbsup:

Thanks everyone. I'm going to start taking it apart to see the condition. My plans right now are to keep it fairly close to stock in appearance, but give it a bit more in the oomph department. I'd really like to do a frame-off, but not sure how involved I want to get there...

By the looks of the horn button, that appears to be an early 77.... Nice car!

Got the car home safely and starting peeking around a bit. Found out it has the gymkhana suspension.

Looks as though the fan has hit the shroud at some point



Driver rear frame, #3, and #4 body mounts







Thankfully, the floor looks to be in good shape

Nice Vette. Paint doesn't look too bad in the

pics. Good luck with the project. I see by

the end pics you're not wasting any time.
