gv wrote:If you want a corvette project car, my sons 1992 corvette is for sale and would be a decent start point for some one wanting to get into a C4 corvette restoration project fairly cheaply, while needs an interior and some other minor body work, its drive-able ,and its not been in any accidents, , it just in need of tires, some interior like door panels seats and carpet, and loving care from some guy that knows corvettes with the time and cash to get it sorted out!
My son will sell it very reasonable , its been basically taking up room, untouched sitting in my shop for several years.
mostly because of my sons medical and financial issues.
Ive started it up every month, to keep the engine and transmission fu8nctioning, but because he never has any cash,for maintenance,or desire to drive the car, or a desire to do work on it , its remained basically stock,and the interiors in need of a rebuild as the door panels, seats and rugs need replacing, not all the gauges work, but again as a project car Im sure its a decent starting point , Ive heard him ask $3500 and at that price fixing its a decent project

Its a Decent looking C4 Corvette Grumpy.
Hard to believe no one has bought yet.
If I didn't have priorities and had extra Room to stoor it indoors I would buy it from You & your son.
Wife would be P.O. at me too.
With interior worn I would strip interior to basics and turn it into a Drag Racer .

If we were local to each other I would have swapped you a 454 chevy block or a semi auto 12 ga shot gun,for that dana 60 rear differential, but unfortunately transport costs or paper work makes those options across 1000 plus miles separating us less than realistic

I will sell the Dana 60 last Grumpy.
Its still yours .
Testing waters always on D.C. C4 & Newsroom.
Only people like us are serious & mean well.
I can make the drive nonstop to Florida.
20+ hours.
Have to get away from wife & kids.
My priorities.


Its a really nice C4 Vette your son has.
I have seen 100 times worse sell for $7k.

Talk again soon Grumpy.

Been about 1 year since I bought the Dana 60.
Best I recall I gave $375 cash. And brought my junkyard owner friend my old 78 Buick Electra.
Scrap metal was up at the time.
Figure $100.
No engine or trans. Took the 403 olds out turbo 400 trans.
In my 63 GP now.
Also took out the posi 8-1/2 10 bolt case too out of my old rusted out Buick.

I put the ad in CRAIGS LIST, the first guy that called looked it over and started it up, and forked over the CASH I asked for, so my son got at least some cash back for his medical expenses

yes IT,s not much cash in the long run, but every dollar helps in his case,because his med bills are significant. so Im glad he had no trouble selling it, the guy paid the asking price and will pick the car up this weekend.

yeah! he tried but I pointed out I could part out the cars major components for more than I was asking so that made him realize the price was not out of line
