Default Cheap project

I'm looking for a project C3 i'd prefer a 1980, 81or 82 but open to other years. I'm located in North Carolina so the closer the better. Let me know what you've got.

that seems like a decent deal but, I'm currently deployed and the wife wouldn't be able to go pick that up alone. If it was roller I might be able to talk her into going and getting it. If you've still got this available mid-November time frame I might be able to work something out.

"Cheap project" might be an oxymoron. Good luck.

Iíve got a 1976 L-48 project car. I picked this car up a little over a year ago from a paint and body guy close by. Itís currently stripped down to primer due to it needing minor body work. Iíve replaced the entire front brakes including hard and soft lines, rotors, calipers, pads, bearings, and MC. Iím currently replacing the brakes in the rear as well as the mounting hardware for the rear suspension. Engine starts up and sounds strong. Transmission should be in working order but Iíve been unable to test due to no brakes. Iím asking $3500 but open to offers. Let me know if you have any questions.

Still looking? I'd drop mine down to $2500, which comes with almost $2000 worth of new parts already. Call or text me (575)973-2808 if interested.

Sounds too good to be true. If it is real someone's going to get a great deal.

That is a very good deal. My eyes are always bigger than my pockets. Someone is going to get a good project car.

That does sound like a good deal but its currently out of my reach at 10k. I'll be going to look at a car I found online hopefully this weekend or early next week as long as I can get a flight back to the states.

Are you still searching for a project car? I decided yesterday to sell mine. Have not even advertised it yet. It's a 73 with an 80/81 body convertible. Rebuilt front and rear supsensions, just installed a Mustang 5 speed (aftermarket Z-spec version, rebuilt vortec heads, Carter 650 carb, C5 wheels, C5 seats... etc... To many upgrades to list at the moment with receipts for most of the parts. Car runs strong, especially with a 5 speed tranny.

I'm asking $9,000. Have about $17,000 in the car and have owned it for 20 years. Was one of the first 8,000 to register on this forum back in 1999. I can provide more details if you have any interest. I live just outside of Knoxville, TN.
