Looks really enticing to me, but have you seen it personally yet? I'd go see it, then if it still looks good, I'd jump on it. I'd even see if he'd let me put it up on a lift.

Don't know much about C3's but this is for sale right across the river from me. What's a real world value? He said it was originally a big block car. Iws it time for another project?

Hard to say the Value current.

I am seeing prices all over on C3's on facebook groups.

One way to look at it is the 454 is worth a solid $3500 alone.
The M-22 is worth at least $2k
Sacttershield blowproof bellhousing is worth $350.

Rest is a CORVETTE

Like Brian said, cash talks. 12K talks real loud. I could handle the no A/C but the headlights would have to go

I had the old 70 but she wouldn't drive it.

If you're serious about it visit in person and crawl under it with a flashlight and look for frame rust and rust in the birdcage.
That windsheild sealer thay used back in the day cracks & the rust begins, the cowl drains clog ,rust thru & wipes out the #2 body mounts,wet feet ! Rear frame kick up at the trailing arm front mount usually rust.Door sag,Ps cyl leak,it already has a brake problem,If I was closer I would go with ya , Im not expert but been around a few C3's.
As far as price this is where I shop & go by that in my area.
Im in no way affilated with this place.I did check out a 96 CE/LT4 for a member on another board who was from Romania.he bought the car & I met the guy there.Another time a guy from Canada wanted a set of org hub caps for a 63 SWC.Driver quality,he sold the 63,I was a little disapointed he didn't give me 1st shot when he sold it.That was the 3rd 63 I missed out on,wasn't ment to be I guess.Im over it.

I miss my Chevy Tahoe & GMC Suburban.
Both are K1500 's with a SBC 350.
I was telling Grumpy at His place I hate the 4L60E transmissions they used. Worthless trans for heavy duty towing.
Should have used the Turbo 400 & 4L80E only in the Trucks.

I did the "wife delete mod" to free up some money for my cars.

Whatever you do, don't get your wife/girlfriend a mood ring for a present. When they're happy it turns blue and when they're not happy it puts a red mark on your forehead.

Racecar is still Racecar spelled backwards Gunny.
What A Corvette was built to do I think.
Stand on it & never let off the gas unless you really have to.
