1967 Camaro RS 03'67 Chevy Camaro Rally Sport

It's really a pity to see a great car like this abandoned and up on blocks. It's been stripped of so many of it's parts and then left out in the yard to rust. Floor boards, rear quarters and truck floor are all swiss cheese with cancer. Read the rest of this entry »

1956 Corvette Convertible

1956-chevrolet-corvette-061956 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

This '56 Corvette shell and chassis has been sitting in storage for over 35 years. It was stripped in 1974 for a restoration, but as we all know sometimes real life gets in the way of our hobbies. The original 265 engine is long gone as is the rest of the drive train. No word on whether this was originally a 3 speed manual or a Powerglide automatic. Read the rest of this entry »

1955 Corvette

1955-corvette-011955 Corvette

Sometimes those stories about a dream car tucked away in some old guy's barn aren't too far off. Here's a candidate for a really nice project. It's a 1955 Corvette that looks to be Pennant Blue. This was a super rare color with only 45 produced because it was replaced early in 1955 with Harvest Gold.

Actually all of the 1955 Corvettes are very rare, with only 700 produced. This was compared to 3,640 made the year before. The release of Ford's brand new Thunderbird was part of that sales decline and rumor was that the Corvette project would be short lived at GM.

Not much more info available on this car, but it sure would be fun to wrench on. Read the rest of this entry »

63-chevy-nova-011963 Nova 4 Door Drag Racer Project

Someone started with a good idea on this '63 Nova, but just couldn't follow through. So here it sits. It's been tubbed for slicks, has a Ford 9" rear with Detroit Locker and 4 link suspension. Maybe someone will pick this gem up and finish what was started. Read the rest of this entry »

69-camaro-convertible2Brilliant. I mean, why wouldn't you leave your 1969 Camaro convertible out in the snow?...with no top...gathering leaves & crap to let the rust go nuts! Man! Buy a $30 car cover!!!

This was originally a Lemans Blue car with white convertible top. It was only a 6 cylinder, but that's still no way to treat a convertible Muscle Car! Read the rest of this entry »

1962-corvette-bbq-21962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible - "Slight Smoke Damage"

OUCH! These photos just make you cringe. The great thing about the Corvette fiberglass bodies is they don't rust. But catching on file and burning to the ground? Yeah, you still gotta watch out for that. Read the rest of this entry »

1966 Corvette

1966-corvette-convertible-031966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

Here's a cool little project that's been sitting in a North Carolina field. It's a 1966 Corvette convertible that someone started to do a resto-mod on. It's got a T10 four speed and Chevy 10 bolt rear end, but no motor. Interior is totally trashed (missing actually) and not sure what's going on with that left front tire. Maybe it's just the tire missing, but I don't see any spindle there either. As if there wasn't enough work to do on this car! Read the rest of this entry »
