It was originally an L-82 package but the guy we got it from pulled that motor, sealed it in plastic, and stored it. He then (since he was a local engine builder for the local 1/8th mile track) built what he thought was the ultimate normally aspirated 350 chevy on pump gas. It was a pretty nasty motor, with a big Holley carb, huge intake manifold, cam with lobes the size of texas, and exhaust runners so big you could throw a bowling ball down them. I am unsure which heads it had, but the guy had ported them enough to drive a forklift around in them comfortably. The advertisement for this car simply read "1977 Corvette, original engine on pallet, not a Sunday driver, call for more information." For example, the automatic transmission in this car was so aggressively set up, that it's baseline shift point from first to second gear was 50 mph. It took just more than one tank of fuel per hour to run it. I do believe my favorite part about the car was the original white leather interior and stock wheels. People walked past it at car shows with the hood down, but with the hood up, everybody stopped and did a double take of the engine. It's idle was something else. This car got dismantled and sold in pieces because it honestly had no business having license plates on it. It would instantly kill any driver without self-control. Guy we sold the motor to stuck it in a Camaro, and it would hold a wheelie into 2nd.


Fucken A

Too bad it was a 77, I like the early C3s more

Ya, its base/clear. Its really slick in person. The bumpers, hub caps, dash, engine bay and other miscellaneous trim pieces are the same color gloss. The whole entire interior will be close to the color of the wheels. He likes blue apparently!

Sweet...I can finally be an arrogant asshole and correct and publicly shame somebody. 1932 was a model b. Model a's were from 1928-31. Fucking tard!!!

Jk about the tard part, wanted to give you a hard time. Its funny because 32 was the only year like that body style....so they are quite valuable and sought after. There are people with model a's who don't know the difference and see a 32 for sale for an ungodly sum....and suddenly think their lowly model a is worth that much.

I had the process down to 45 minutes from parking in driveway to washing hands

My father-in-law did a bolt by built restoration of a 1910 Brush. The guy who owned it inherited it from his grandfather who bought it new in 1910. I didn't get to drive it though. After it was done they took it on a reliability run with other pre-teens cars.

Well, it was called brush automobile company. Were around from early or mid 1900's to 1913. If i recall it had a single cyl engine capable of like 15hp. Think my FIL said it'd do about 30. Also said you wouldn't want to go faster than that in it. Frame was wood....oak I believe. Suspension was really weird....don't remember why though.

Was a complete bolt by bolt restoration. before the tear down they took it on a reliability run....father in law acted as navigator and mechanic. Was a 2 or 3 day event. Restoration was completed with all except radiator. Previous attempts to restore the radiator failed miserably....somebody tried to fix it with jb weld. FIL tried to repair it for good but was unable to salvage it. A "new" one was around the $6k range.

Not necessarily a cool vehicle....other than the fact of its age. Crazy simple and quite innovative yet primitive at the same time. Was fun watching him tear it down and restore it. Made me look forward to going to his shop to visit.
