After a lot of thinking, debating and chat amongst ourselves and other Corvette folks, we’ve decided that the 77 C3 is going to go through a light restoration instead of being parted out. It’s just too nice.
We purchased a 1978 shell in Detroit and it’s going to donate it’s front clip to our restoration project. We’ve yet to pick it up, but that’s in the very near future. The 1977 will be repainted to it’s factory Code 10 White, with the factory buckskin interior also repaired. Since the car has a 1982 305 (5.0L) motor, it’s going to be swapped out for a 350 (5.7L) rebuilt motor with a mild street build to about 350hp.
P.S.: Here’s a video walk around of the car!
