69 Corvette worth?
Any idea on what I can ask for my 69 Corvette?
Original 427 /390HP L36
Stock Side Pipes and Luggage rack.
Title shows as second owner car
Original nearly everything
NOS radiator added shortly before parked
Then removed and stored when idle.
This car has been parked since 1989 or so
The engine was rebuilt a few hundred miles before it was parked
The reason it was parked was a higher cam was added and the teeth on the flywheel would sheer off starting her.
After two flywheel resurfaces it was parked for correction with a smaller cam.
My family hates the car
This prevented proper care of her as it is on their property.
Car has been idle ever since!
103k orig miles
All Numbers match

its been parked without a radiator ,and no coolant in the block for 22 years? the engine will need complete rebuild , corrosion will be a big problem ..don t understand why camshaft would cause teeth to shear off flywheel, the link you have doesn t come up for pics...was it kept outside all this time? what do you want for car ? and where in texas?

Holy Crap! this is a candidate for either a complete frame-off restoration /drivetrain rebuild,[ in which case you ll need about $25,000 to do] ..or just a donor car for the few parts that are still usable... hope you re not expecting a lot of $$..I d say $500-$1000 would be a fair offer
