Default 1967 road racer

I obviously can't stay away. I sold my 69 track/street car about 6 months ago while I was starting a new business. I still have a 68 track car waiting to be finished but I stumbled across this 67 that I had to buy. We will make some changes but mostly cosmetic.

Vince, what's the story with the car? Somebody spent a fair amount of money on it. The belts are from 1997 and so is the engine block. It has all C5 corvette underpinnings and 97 was the first year of the C5. I wonder if it was built then. If so, that must of cost a ton since the c5 was brand new and whoever built it was pretty ahead of their time.
