1978 Chevrolet Corvette BASEThis is a project!! The automatic transmission is still in the car. It comes with the original rally wheels, t-tops, and what you see in the photos. (Seats, hood, t-tops, and carpet not pictured but included)
This car was purchased from someone in Hawaii (was there for approx. 7 years). The previous owner decided to pull the engine and donate it to a local high school. I purchased the car for an easy restoration, thinking the frame was fine and it just needed an engine, only to find out the frame needs to be completely replaced and the interior was gutted. Overall, the body is solid, no cracks or fiberglass degradation. The birdcage is virtually rust free, meaning the body is usable. I took off all the body mount bolts so the frame and body are ready to be seperated.
I have had the car for about 5 years, I am open to negotiation.
I'm a college student, so I cannot take on a project this large yet. My loss is your gain, this is the perfect blank slate for a resto-mod or build of your dreams.
