got an 85 that had been tortured but never wrecked and its on its way to being everything it wasnt. in a couple more months it will look all different and it wont remember the old L98 briggs that it drug around for 20 years. wasnt going to show it under these circomstances but the grandsportC3 wants to get this section going so here we are

Looks like it will be a fun project. Lots of luck to you.

Have fun with the project..

I bought a C4 ('92 Coupe) yesterday and will pick up the car on Monday... The one I bought needs all weatherstripping, carpet and seat covers.. Not that bad.. Should be very nice for less than $1500 investment..

its the first nice day weve had in a while so i finished gutting the c4.
i spent 4 hours takeing the tank out and the rear frame section has no use on this poject so i scraped it too. it dont do nothing but hold the tank up. im 4 linking a 9" for it that dana 36 dont look too strong and all them moveing parts aint got no place on a track but that corvette rear set up may be good in a pickup project next year.
all that alcoa is good lookin stuff.

nope.. That price doesn't include the cost of the car.. I got a great deal on it...

Weatherstrip is about $350 for the kit, seat covers are about $250 for the leather-like covers (I don't want leather as they wear too quicklly). Front carpet is about $250. Seat cover install is probably another $250. Total of under $1500...

I rather though $1500 was a little low for a Corvette car Laughing
