Corvettes from 68 to 82 have no value except for a few limited special additions. They were just a fiberglass body with a passenger car low performance engine. We have a painter that does hot rod paint work like tri-stage and candies come and spray these projects as our own just do solid color work. He is very busy but said we would go to the head of the line if we brought him a virgin Corvette 350 for his roundy car. Found one that has repairable damage that the owner had collected as a totaled car from his insurance for $600. As I said, they have no value and we already have more Corvette chassis than we will ever use so it's crusher time; a shame.

So the guy just wants an engine? Does the class he's running specify a particular block casting number or something? Back in the 1960's the way to get a Corvette owner's goat was to call his car a "fiberglass Impala"!

My brother-in-law bought a 2008 a year ago he had 3 over time back in the early 70s. He is a retired GM employee. Anyway, this one is a real beauty, and all the bells and whistles. BUT difficult to get in and out of and rides like a brick.

I owned a 76 Vette same color as the blue one you have shown Evan . even thought they were not as popular than the older Vettes ,they were worth more than the 80ies and 90ies .. I did some work on mine ,,but all I can say now is I owned one and it sure got the thumbs up ..

Interesting lift you had there, Larry. Kind of a pain to make it go up and down though, eh? wink

Jerry, when I stated "virgin" it meant standard bore and crank. The Corvette is a second owner with verifiable history so that is why we bought it. Corvettes have 4 bolt mains which we DID NOT want for racing but some people are caught up in catch phrases like "4 bolt mains and 4 link rears".

Back in 1985 I bought a 1966 for 10K, today 1966 Corvette. [bringatrailer.com]
So, lets not be so sure of our selves folks.
