This appears to be a really nice original unmolested car... it doesn't look to have been fluffed or been polished on. I looked at a 30k mile daytona yellow 70 L46 roadster this weekend which was in remarkably similar condition.

IF This car has no rust issues and it sells for under 50k I will be very surprised

If anyone here buys it...
I would love to be the one to prep that car for bowtie or flight judging. -
The paint needs claybarring and then meguires number 7 a couple of times.
Then pick out the areas on the car which are scratched etc mark with a piece of masking tape... then hand polish the blemish to a 30 -50% reduction using swirl remover -
then go back over the car with either number 7 or meguires wax. --- reassess. -
FWIW when polishing original paint a 30-50% reduction in the appearance of each blemish will remarkably improve the overall appearance of the entire car.

Default Auction

My money for this week is on the yellow ‘70 LT-1 conv to break $75k bid at Mecum. And a much higher final bid price wouldn’t surprise me.

For some reason I don't think 75k would pry your Daytona Yellow LT1 Roadster from your hands...

Probably wouldn’t. LOL. And thank you again for those who don’t know about your help in putting me together with the seller.

Can’t easily replace these ROAD ROCKETS, so I will likely always have one as long as I have Corvettes. 1983 and counting.....This one is my 4th, and 3rd ‘70 LT-1 Conv.

I do appreciate this forum and all of the leads that have been sent. I haven’t pulled the trigger yet due to some sort of issue or the wrong color. I have checked them all out. Some have been auction cars and I won’t buy one of them.
