Looks like a real nice Vette.  With the gas prices so low, you may be able to afford to drive it everyday.   Just keep that lead foot under control.  Could get pretty expensive with tickets added on.

Times are tough guys. My guess is that he won't even get an opening bid. Here's a 74 that I was watching a few weeks back. All original with BB and 9,000 miles. Asking $34,000...high bid $7600.

Looks very nice but I just don't know if I like that hood. For the price this might go for you could buy a C3 for Monday, Tuesday, Wednasday, Thursday, & Friday.

Hey!!! That's the twin big brother to my car!

For one that's so "original", he sure has replaced a lot of stuff!!
He's aboot $10,000 too high, realistically.
Terry at Pro-Team has had a really SWEET, super low mile '74 convert for about 2 years now...same color and all....he thinks it's worth $29,000 for some reason....

This would definitely be different Larry and just think....a 9 sec. daily driver. LOL


My best guess is sub 10 seconds, although I haven't timed it myself. The previous owner told me he did a 1/4 mile in 9.6 seconds, and when I took the car for a prepurchase inspection, I asked the owner of the shop (Laughton, at the Corvette in San Diego), the same question. He said he thought it would do under 10 seconds no problem at all.

Any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

thanks,

Ben
