There are lots of threads telling you what to check out; but you need to evaluate what you want first--do you want a fix-r-up, a running vehicle ready to go, pure stock, slightly modified, power train, tranny, etc. as well as how much time and money you want to put into the car.Howdy guys,
just wondering what to look for when searchin for a c3, anything i should stay away from or look specifically on a car for when i go check it out. thanks alot! BTW i dunt want crossfire, im looking for carbed!
The '79 has the most stock horse power of the '75 to '82 C3 post emmisions control era. I was searching for anything in that range but the '79 I bought just happened to ride the best of all the others I looked at. I found the biggest problems during my search with that group of Corvettes was sagging suspension. Everyone of them had a leaking oil pan, valve covers and the power steering control arm valve (all not a big deal to fix).sry about being somewhat board; i am extremely mechanically and sheetmetal inclined. I have restored a 66 mustang from death ( sorry i like a little bit of both Ford and Chevy) lol but im lookin for a late model C3 maybe a 78 0r 79? that runs. i just want something in pretty good condiiton i dont care if i have to redo the interior or not. i want something mechanically sound. I also want to know about removing all emissions and the cat since there is none of that here in miami, florida.. im pretty sure i covered most things. other than that ask on!:cheers:
