Here are a few photos of a 69 Corvette I just bought. The pictures will show it is as pretty close to a barn find or garage find as you can get. Unfortunately, I was not along when this car was retrieved, but the person who found it took plenty of pictures. When I first saw the car, it had been washed, but that was all.
Unfortunately, the original 427/400 is gone. Still has the original 4spd, and all the other BB features. It is a highly optioned car having pw, pb, ps, A/C, am/fm/stereo, speed warning speedometer, and factory alarm system. It also has a luggage rack and side pipes. Burgandy with saddle leather interior. Second owner owned it for 40 years. Last driven in 1979, and still has the tags on it from that year, and I have the matching registration card. Also have the "subsequent owner" p-o-p with the second owner data. Frame and birdcage are fine.
Now you have a project! If it was stored under that house for all that time, it probably stayed dry, which is the most important storage issue. I think you may be in for more work than you think, but it looks like a nice car to begin with. I am glad someone is going to put some love into that car after being neglected for all those years. Feel free to contact me if I can be of help!
Unfortunately, no. The previous owner sold that hood when he bought the L88 hood. Then, he proceeded to cut a triangular hole in the underside so it would fit the tri-power air cleaner. Fortunately, he kept the firberglass piece he cut from the underside of the L88 hood, so it can eaisly be repaired.
What is that other project you have going on in your garage? Looks like a twin!!
The other project is a 1970. I bought it several years ago with the front end wrecked. Picked up a good used front clip at Carlisle. It is now bonded on and just waiting for Spring so I can finish the body work. It is a NOM 4spd car, originally Corvette Bronze with black interior.
