The seller of this 1967 Corvette claims it is “the project you have been dreaming about!” We are not sure if they are talking about good or bad dreams, so you will have to be the judge. It is a 427 coupe which has been in storage since 1980. It is located in Houston Texas and is listed for sale here on eBay with bidding at $14k.
First, the good: 427 engine, four speed manual, factory AC, silver over black. Not a bad list in our book. In fact, this could almost be the perfect Corvette. Too bad it’s not…
Now, the bad, and there are a lot of them: the car was stored in the dirt, there is rust in the doorjams, it was resprayed red in the 70s, a bunch of the parts were removed and thrown inside, the block was swapped out, the original transmission is missing, the stinger hood was stolen… Wow, do we really need to continue?
Yet, the seller is confident that someone will want to take this project on and actually we are too. It wont be us though. This Corvette is going to require a complete restoration and we do mean complete.
We prefer to start with something requiring a little less work, but there are still those among us who love to bring these back to life no matter the cost. So, is this the one you have been dreaming about?
