FYI - A 71 BB ac 4 SPD vert was on ebay the week before last. and did not sell. It did not have a trim tag either, running a 396 engine in it, originally yellow but repainted red - nice paint. A "buy it now" for $21k and no one pulled the trigger on that car that I know of.

If you follow C3s on eBay, there are dozens of chrome bumper high dollar listings that never receive a bid or never make reserve. My suggestion to OP, if she can wait, Mecum Dallas in September or Vegas in October. The smaller venues, Indy, KC, Portland, don't seem to bring out the bidders flush with money. GLWS.

Sorry for your loss, and best of luck with the sale.

Gorgeous car. Nicely done.

Check out Bring-A-Trailer (BaT)

$99.00 up front.

Dear slammin. My phone camera pics do not do this car justice. The appraisals I had done suggested a pricepoint half-way between a 1 and a 2, one being concourse. I used old car price guide, the opinion of the restorer, and seasoned corvetters opinions on the price. I know asking price is high, but I would consider a reasonable offer above my reserve price. I am definitely willing to take time to skype or whatsapp with a potential buyer because the car is exceptional mechanically and aesthetically. Absent of any nibbles over the summer or early fall I will probably pursue the big auction they have here in Kissimmee Florida (January or February?).

Thank you cor66vette for the condolences. At first I thought I wanted to keep and drive the car, but will soon need the space in the garage as I will be the designated caregiver for my elderly mother in the not too distant future and need that storage space. Plus the car is a physical challenge for me to drive. Must have a pillow behind my back to reach the pedals, stiff clutch and four-speed not fun with arthritis. Getting old is not for sissies!!

Dear Cor66vette. Thanks for the referral to Bring-A-Trailer. Just finished looking at the completed auctions on corvettes. Closest I saw comp to mine is the 1968 427 4-speed, Black roadster with hard top that had a $64,000 bid in February. I looked at a trememdous amount of 350cc roadsters, but they just can't come close to the 454 390 hp prices. Old car price guide gave a 30% premium for the big blocks. I have every single receipt with every part number that went into the engine. Things like the headlight vacuum system was rebuilt. The factory air system was rebuilt. I have photos of every single bag of nuts, bolts, new parts. Bumperettes were rechromed. New doorsill trim, new "original" radio. The list goes on and on. Hey, wanna buy it??? I see you live in Florida. I'm in Ocala.
