Default 69 Road / Race Replica

if you've been on here a while you probably know this car. Basically removed the 4 webers and started a stack fuel injection conversion 3 years ago and it hasn't been touched since. I will list the mods (lots and lots of them, in fact a list of what's stock would be easier (and shorter)) in a bit. Not running right now (obviously) will need a good clean, its NOT a comfortable car! its loud, its hot, it doesn't have AC..doesn't have a radio, it is street legal (as long as you don't want wipers and side windows!) but driving it in the rain would be nuts anyway!!. These pictures are from a track day a few years back, the wheels and front spoiler are now black.
Bring a trailer and $20K, don't HAVE to sell it, just don't have time to work on it due my son's baseball and my guitar business. Don't visit this site much anymore, so my email lvrpool32 at Hotmail dot com is the best place to start a conversation.


cheers,
Nick

God I love this car! At $20k, someone is getting a great deal on a track toy.

I'm looking for an extra $20k to buy another Corvette (as if I need another one). Maybe I should start a GoFundMe. It seems to work for less noble causes than my Horsepower addiction

Beautiful...I wish I was a serious buyer for this...Or that the ad had been out last summer...Coulda, woulda, shoulda!!

Was this on a dyno?
What are the numbers?
Whats the red line?
What does the car need other than new fuel system and FI management?
What would you do to it if you kept it? What would you change or improve?
In your opinion What kind of budget would one need to turn this into fully functional and reliable dual purpose car?
Thanks!

Any pictures as it sits now? What would be required to keep the weber setup instead of converting to the EFI, and is that all that's needed to make it run?

Thanks.

Congrats on the sale! Good thing, had I scraped up the money I would have gotten arrested within the first 5 minutes on the road with this. What an amazing ride, the new owner will definitely enjoy the fruits of your hard labor.
