"Replica 1962 Corvette
Built on a very nice 1998 Convertible Corvette chassis with 118K miles.
This is what I would call a CRC knock-off.
The fiberglass body has been bonded on and will need
body work to be completed. Headlights and taillights work.
The interior is original 98 Vette and in very good shape.
LS1 with auto trans - runs, drives, stops and steers.

This car is NOT for the purest... It is a running project."

1978 is one my favorite Corvettes. I know the low performance. But, I just love when they went to the hatchback and spoiler. I would still love one with an updated LS or such.

This one....pay special attention to the engine plumbing.

Wonder who made the decision (or didn't) on the 1/4 turn vs the full turn plus knob?

TWO ball valves would look much cleaner. They aren't that expensive

Hi tech heater control valve? The car looks decent but that would make me suspect of whatever else he may have "repaired". And they must have not opened the hood at those car shows.
