Just finished this project I started about 4 years ago. My first C1 vette. The color is Carnelian Red, an Infiniti color used on the QC60 in 2019. I purchased the car in pieces, replaced the hood surround and nose, added a new frame with C4 suspension, LS3 500 HP, 4L70e, Scott Fuel wheels, scary fast, spins the wheels when you nail the gas at 30 mph. Dakota Digital gauges, custom interior, Haartz top.

Beautiful car. I've always liked those mid to late fifties Corvettes. The design work on those years were , to me, simply stunning.

Great looking Vette. I'm still working on my '59, should be spraying UV clear next week. I hope it turns out half as good as yours.

I say it goes for $225,000.
Put your figures in and lets see who is closest.

Do you feel pretty confident the two cars are going to bring what you want for them or close to it? No reserve seems sort of scary to me.:eek:

Great job on both of these cars BTW. Both look very nicely put together. (which isn't really easy to do)

"......I painted this in my garage."

I've got a garage so c'mon over anytime.

Beautiful work! Congrats on whatever you get out of it. I'm sure it'll make you smile.
