A car for those who want to go unnoticed, I guess... ;-)

I mean no disrespect, but this must've been Ray Charles' Vette. (The paint is far too wild for 99% of the rest of us!) Which brings me to the price... Considering it's likely going to need to be repainted, it's priced significantly too high. Subtract the cost of a full and proper repaint and you might start attracting some bids. (You DID ask.) Again, GLWS.

I respectfully disagree on the paint job, it's a high quality paint job unlike another custom c4 that did sell recently on this forum (phew, ugly).Yes most people here aren't interested in owning and driving it but it does has the metal to back up the loud paint job. Lots of other people would love to have it just not the one's here. Yes, it probably will need an adjustment in the asking price, heavily modded cars are hard to market.

I'd drive it, but I would probably never show my face here again.

Actually, you and I agree; it is a high-quality paint job. It's just really, really loud. (Damn near makes my eyeballs bleed every time I look at it - but it IS very well done.) I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder - I just don't care for the sharp contrast in the colours and I think that's what's scaring off any potential bidders.

I don't find anything wrong with the paint. You just need to find that one buyer who likes it also...nothing wrong with that.

Good quality paint. The custom job is actually very tasteful. I would say that the estimate of "99%" might be a little high, but it does appeal to a very select niche market. The engine build appears to be top notch. Even those wheels are among the better match that I've seen in custom wheels on these cars. The interior appears to be tasteful as well.

IMO, your asking price is not out of line, IF, you are willing to take awhile to sell it. You are looking for a very specific buyer. He/she is out there, but you will have to do some marketing to get it there, and it will take time and patience. However, if you need to unload it, you will probably have to drop the price considerably, unfortunately.

I must say, though, that it is indeed a top notch example of a custom

I think the car is beautiful. I don't understand the attitude of wanting to drive a stock "me too" Corvette. Every Corvette I've owned I have modified to suit my taste, and I've always been able to sell them without having to repaint. If it were a '63 split window, I could understand the argument.
That being said,I would think the mileage would hurt it more than anything else, although I do understand everything has been replaced/upgraded. I recently bought a '95 for my wife with 58,xxx miles for $11,000. Of course it didn't have thousands of dollars in upgrades, but my wife was more concerned about the mileage than anything else.
I'm sure you will sell you car, it will just take a little time to find the right buyer

Looks great for a real enthusiast. There is a 3rd option--is the economy too stinky (how's that hope and change working out for ya)?

Yes, removed the door handles for painting. painted and clearcoated the handles and reinstalled. I think they look much better than the black rough texture original ones. They are holding up very well, but I'm very careful when putting the key in to not scratch the handle.

Thanks guys for all the input.

Default Additional Info Please

Looks like you have put a lot of work into the engine.

Could you post or send me some more pictures of the engine and engine compartment, as well as the rear wheels and mods required to keep them within the fenders.

Thanks,

John
