I know that color combo.....

It's a tape stripe orange/red.  It's being reproduced by a tape vendor, Phoenix Graphics.

I have that same photo saved.  It's of a low mileage car Corvette Mike sold.

does anyone know of a good corvette junk yard that would have 81 parts.  I need two wiring harness extensions from the engine wiring harness where some critters got a hold of the wiring.

I need the starter harness extension and the carburetor extension.

actually they dont.  I called them first.  they told me "no one is making the carb extension", that is a junk yard part. 

they do make the starter extension but it is $85 for 6 strands of wire, 18" long.

Painless isnt either and all the corvette places I called sell one or the other.

Check out this site.

They had C3 parts, but now only list from C4 up to C7.

Contact them at 1-800-367-8388 or  

https://www.contemporarycorvette.com/

They might have the parts you need.

Try Jim Stevens at Corvette Guys, his # 608-365-0911.  I’ve been doing business with him for 30 years. Good luck!
