Sorry, I left an important fact out........ Price range depends on conditiom. Id like to stay below &10,000.Hard to do -nope, I'm lookig for one that has body damage but , is all there.

My friend just bought a 69 nos matcing # convt for 6,000. It's not bad. Needed windshield repair, which I did for him,Paint & a new interior helped.

I am a retired Engr & built a 6 car garage next to my home. I have a paint booth.MIG/TIIG welders @ a hydraulic lift. I can do everything but. pull ouy frames whivh I have to farm out threrfore I prefer a Vette w/no frame damage.

I have owned 8 Vettes over the yrs, I currently have a 2002 Z06 but, I need one to keep buzy on..........thanks Don

If it helps any, there is a 73 vert over here red w/ black int. and a white top. The asking price is 13k but it is negotiable. Last time I looked there was 35k on the odometer and it still has the original engine and tranny. Car is very clean, but there is a small tear in the top behind the drivers side window.

I am a little gun shy w/buying cars on Ebay. I bought a RR from a dealer in Queens & the car was misrepresented. Thats why I'd like to buy one where I can drive up & back in one or two days......Don
Ps - any Vette owners in this area needing help w/body work feel free to ask.

JCswm - Sounds like what I'm looking for but, was hoping to get a Vette w/all the parts there. If you can find his telephone no it might be worth talking to him.......Thanks Don

Don, if you're not in a big hurry, hang loose for a week or so, and let me look around the Tampa area for you. There usually are vettes in your price range available.

If I see something I think you might be interested in I'll pm you.

Thanks Bob - I sure appreciate your offer! I am in no big hurry. I'd rather wait for the right car.
