Default 1973 Corvette- LS1/T56 Pro-touring

Hello,

This is my current money pit. It is a 1973 Corvette that I purchased in Jan 2010 for $7300. Overall the car was nice and clean, but I just something more radical as you can see. The 350/th400 was pulled in place of LS1/T56 combo from an 02 Camaro SS. The motor has a LS6 and Intake, Hedman headers and under-drive pulley.

First Time home

The Body finally is finished. Should be going into the booth in 2 weeks.



Here is a glimpse of what the colors will look like against each other.

Cool project, I love the C3 body style. Do you have any other plans for your Corvette?

Glad you started posting over here as well. It'll be easier for me to keep up with your progress, lol. I like the colors you've chosen. How long did they say it would take to spray the car?

Good luck.
