Im thinking about getting a C3 Corvette, i had a C4, want to change things around a bit. But how much are they worth? The one I'm looking at is custom, has lambo doors, custom hood, new engine and tranny. Needs paint, Original owner from 1979. Clean title. What would you pay for something like that? Appreciate all feedback.
Normally I dont like cars that have this much mods to them. But for only $6000 this looks like a lot of car for the money. And I can see how this would appeal to the younger crowd as it brings some of the newer mods such as the lambo doors to an older car.
For only $6k it looks good. At least until you hit your first speed bump and it rips off the front air dam which is sitting too low and too far forward to be practical on the street.
I'm very much NOT an expert on these cars (as I'm a new owner myself).
With that said... I'll have to agree that for $6k, that's really not a bad deal (assuming that the engine is good). I, personally, hate that front air dam, but the more I look at the doors and the hood, the more I like them.
Just make sure it's mechanically sound enough to be your daily driver. That would be my biggest concern.
As for resale value... I bet you'll always be able to find another teenage or college kid to sell it to aslong as you take care of it.
