Yes, the pictures are truly awful (why couldn’t you at least get the whole car into one shot?), but this find is worth bringing to your attention anyway! It’s a 1967 (last C2 year) L79 (hottest small block available that year) still wearing what’s left of its original paint and sporting matching numbers (according to the seller–more information is supposed to be posted tomorrow). It’s up for sale here on eBay at no reserve with bidding at only $2,500 so far (bet ya it doesn’t stay there for long!)
Ooops! The buyer of this Corvette will need some fiberglass work here in the rear right. But if you squint a little, can you see how this one would look repainted in the original blue? Or even just leaving the cosmetics as-is apart from the repair! I’m not that experienced with fiberglass work, but I don’t think this would be too difficult to fix, would it?
The factory (or factory look) side pipes really make this car! I hope the steel parts of this ‘Vette are as solid looking as the outside!
What’s that I see through the window? Yes, that’s a factory four speed shifter! Yay! Oh, and the seller does tell us that they have the window surround trim as well. Ok, I admit it…I want it! Unfortunately, we don’t get to see any more of the interior, but at least you know the seats exist (and the dash from other pictures)
And here’s the L79. The seller tells us that the car has about 114,000 miles, so you may end up having to do some reconditioning–given the inexpensive and plentiful nature of parts, I think I’d at least want to take a look inside the engine unless after checking things over properly it started right up and ran well! I just wish it were me doing the looking! Where would you take this cool project?
