Default C3 Corvette Project Under $10,000

I知 looking to buy a C3 Corvette with a manual transmission as a project. I知 trying to restore/fix up a C3 that needs some work or parts replaced. Not looking for a lot of body work to repair rust or anything in that area, more the engine, interior, etc.

How about a nice 69 T Top
Safari Yellow with black interior
It's a Automatic but that can be your "project" converting it to 4/5 speed
$10K buys it

With the extra $$ left over you can make a "project" of adding a stick. Win/win

I currently have a 1972 Corvette Stingray I need to sell due to family reasons. I have owned the car since 1998 and drove it for a number of years then decided to rebuild it.
Motor in place is a brand new 383 Stroker Motor built by Jenke Motors in San Antonio. Absolutely Zero miles. 500 hp base. I rebuilt the transmission Turbo Hydromatic 350 and installed a stall converter at 2k rpm. Its not a manual transmission as you requested but just an option. I rebuilt the front suspension, brakes, brake lines, new rotors, master cylinder. New driveshaft U Joints rebuilt the rear end and rear end and rear suspension. Fuel tank is brand new and new fuel lines are in place. New wiring harness is present. Interior needs to be rebuilt, but all the parts are present. Because of the new motor I installed I was going to need a new hood also. Id be willing to let go of it for somewhere around what your target price is. If you would like me to include some pictures and more detailed info just let me know. Thank you!

Default 74 corvette

I'm selling my 74 corvette for $7750. It has a 350 engine with an upgraded Edelbrock intake and carb. The car has a 4-speed in it. It was a frame off restoration. The only things it need is some new carpet. The paint is good but could use a new paint job. For an extra $1000 I will put in some new carpet, door panels, and you can choose from the rims I have. The headlights do work. This is a California car.

I have your car here in Uxbridge , MA. It's price point is $9,998 which is well under your budget. It is running right now and it sounds great!

Rust man, post your car for sale. By now the OP either found something or realized he was better off with a cocaine habit than a Corvette habit. Now, what year is your car? 68-72 sounds priced to sell. 74-up it is a bit overpriced.
