Default 68-73 Manual

I'm looking for a chrome bumper (including 73) Corvette 4 speed manual as a project car.
Color really doesn't matter, same with body style (coupe/convertible), both small blocks and big blocks are welcome, and any engine condition is alright (doesn't have to be #'s matching).
Besides the transmission, the only other big criteria is that the frame and birdcage be in good condition and free of any excessive rust, and that there isn't any huge damage to the body.
Oh also -- I'm located in Saint Louis Missouri, but I am willing to travel to check out the right car.
Feel free to leave a message here or PM me, and any leads for cars you've seen for sale would be greatly appreciated as well!!

No I don't think the newspaper is worthwhile now but 22 years ago the internet wasn't used for much like it is now. Your post just brought back the memory.
