I've been asked about trades. May consider, let me know what u have to offer. Would prefer a Gto, Chevelle SS, 30's street rod. Or maybe another vette.

Reason: wrong number
Bump since its been awhile.
Plus i wanted to share this mornings tire kicker. He asked if i had proof that the components (alt, starter, carb) Basially everything dated besides the block actually came with the car and werent replacements. After a drive and listening to his knowledge of Vettes? I didnt realize black was most popular color for early 70"s. And Chevy stopped production of the 355 cubic in. due to people returning them from producing too much power vs the LT-1 motors. WOW. Guess he never heard of the LS-6 or L88
I finally told him my way back machine was down and politely said goodbye.
