    great find--as stated by many the 57 unit with a 905 dist is big bucks--the 61 4900R is a more drivable unit. Should be able to get serious $$ from the 57 unit--is it a 4800 or the earlier variation.

    What a killer find! In my opinion the best looking Vette model ever! Keep us updated.

    I saw that car on CL. The price wasn't out of line. Nice job rescuing it.

    Heading to Cincinatti Cavelcade of Customs. 50 miles west of Indy with ice & snow covered roads, maybe the state snow plow drivers called in sick? Interstate 74 west of Indy worst I have seen it in 30 yrs.

    If you at Josh Shaw's "Survivors Alley" stop & say hi. I will have a display against the wall of American Rebel wheels, aluminum club plaques & a few 6x2 intakes with Stromberg 97 carbs.

    Nice find, I love the period paint. That car would be 300% less cool and interesting restored. The odd ball survivor custom 'vettes make me want one.

    Might have missed it, but do you have a good picture of the exterior paint job after you cleaned it up. It makes this car ohhhh so interesting. Thanks in advance...

    Hey Guys! Read all the posts! As long as Solo Speed Shop owns it! It will never be restored to stock! TQQ CQQL to be a stock Corvette! Don't get me wrong I like nice cars! But if they have been tricked out or Hot Rodded why go back? Just let them stay CQQL! Hope you understand! Bill
