Bill, ound this slick 73 while visiting sunny Florida, bout 3 yrs. ago. It was a solid, ust free car that fit perfectly in his plans
to Resto-Mod (restore-modern) a classic Vette for himself. His plan was to retain the classic look, but dramatically improve it's reliability, br> performance, amp; handling. An all new, uel injected big block, ated to a new high performance 200-4R automatic overdrive trans was the plan.
Cruise 70 mph all day at lower rpm's with less engine wear & improved fuel mileage.
To insure a quality build, ill stripped the car down to the frame, the rear end housing & the body.
The restoration started by installing a new wiring harness. Then every nut, olt and screw used and the parts they mounted were new.
A certified mechanic with over 40 yrs. experience, ill spent most of his spare time, he last 2 1/2 yrs, estoring every detail of the car.
During the restoration, he latest technology was used everywhere possible and still retain the original classic styling.
Some of the upgrades over original equipment are the engine, rans, front & rear suspension, xhaust system, rakes, teering, br> shocks, heels & tires, eats, nsulation, ighting & A/C components. This car has all the amenities like Power R&P steering, br> Power 4w disc brakes, ower windows, emovable solid T-Tops & removable rear glass. (rare)
All systems of the car have been gone thru. Any part that couldn't be restored to new condition, as replaced Besides the cost of the car, nd the high end paint & body work,.............. another 25K in new parts were installed.
This professional restoration took approximately 500 hours. The average builders rate is $60 - $100 hr
As you can see there's easily another 30-50k in labor here. If you're looking for a modernized version of an early 70s Classic Vette?
