- 89' Torch Red with red leather interior
I had a couple of C2 Vettes when I was 16-17 years old. Totaled my 63' fastback and sold my 63' convertible . Bought another Vette in my late 20's, a 68' convertible 427 , then sold it to buy a house. Finally after 35+ years I purchased an 89' and liked it so well I got an 87' with the Z52 package. Today I happened upon a C4 convertible that had an engine fire. Wiring is toast, distributer is missing, the plenum has been removed (but comes with car) and the throttle body is missing. One of the rear brakes is locked up also. Top is not great but useable, hood is messed up from fire, fan and fan motor is missing, carpet is shot, seats are repairable (one looks nice but with mold and the other needs the bottom cushion redone), paint is probably terrible. I can't tell because it is covered with dust and dirt. Dash and steering wheel look good. And it has a 4+3 transmission which along with the clutch is supposed to be good. It also has the rear wing on it. I think I can get it for abut $600. It doesn't have a title, but I want to make an Autocross racer out of it not drive it on the street. What I want to know is...... should I buy it and what kind of mess will I get into converting it to a carb since the wiring to the fuel injection is completely gone.
