Thank makes good sense. Go with a complete car then you can tinker. Any big restoration is going to become a money pit.64vette said:IMHO, look for the absolute best car that you can afford and buy it!!
Unless you can do all of the work yourself, with the price of parts and labour these days you can't build/restore a C1/C2 today for what you can buy a restored one for.
The other thing to seriously consider, is do you really have the time and talent to perform a body off restoration?
