good to see continuing progress. unusual to list for sale when not done, but when it happens, most people just let the dust pile up. dunno if it will ever be worth what you have in it, but it gets closer every day...providing you aren't billing yourself at shop rates for your own labor!

I've sold three non-Corvette race cars. Median sales time was 1.5 years at giveaway prices. I definitely feel his pain.

Is this car in Dubuque? I grew up in St Donatus.

I've been looking at a tri-power 427... There's a nice blue one at Fastlane Classics in St Charles Missouri, ready to drive for $55. And it's a 435 4 speed. It may be numbers matching, the only thing I don't like about it is the undersides been painted with lots of black paint to cover up something. I looked at the car briefly two months ago, and I talked to the salesman today. And at $55 they're obviously making at least five or ten thousand profit, But there's no history with the car, or certificates of authenticity. I really want a 4 speed, and I'm a sucker for options. Text or call me. Andrew 518-572-6450 est. Late is fine.
