What do you think it's worth. Complete rolling chassis, engine, tranny, rear end wheels, tires, brakes. If you could start it up and sit on a bucket, you could drive it down the street. NO RUST ISSUES and the engine and frame match numbers. There just isn't a body or interior. The owner put the body on an aftermarket frame with C6 running gear.
I have an opportunity to buy it, then probably resell it whole or for parts.
What do you think it's worth? I could probably get it for under $3000.
Vette(s): 1982 C3 Collectors Edition 44000 miles, sat in the sun most of it's life, My wife purchased it for me for fathers day in 2007 from her girl friend that had it for 19 years. It is on the road again. I'm retired but it is now my daily driver.
I would seem you can get numbers matching 69 with 100,000 miles on them from the high teens to the low twenties. (Just a quick look on the net). So assuming it had that kind of millage and there is no way to prove that now. While it is illegal to tamper with the Odometer on a car there are no laws about after the engine is out of the car.
Replacing the body would cost $$$ if you could find it so parting it out would be the only thing and then the numbers matching would be less important. I would be careful unless you wanted to sit on it for a long time. You have to advertise it and put up with trying to sell it.
