1980 Custom Corvette – Full Body Off Restoration – 383 Stroker Engine
If you are looking for a numbers matching original Corvette….this is not for you.
If you are looking for a “one-of-a-kind” High Performance 430+ Hp Street Rod with Head Turning looks….then read on and take a look at the photos and details below!!!
The original 1980 Vette with exceptional frame and body, was disassembled to every nut and bolt. The frame and other steel parts were shot or bead blasted, Zero-Rust primed and painted with chassis gloss black. The body was upgraded with flex-fiberglass front and rear bumpers, side and rear ground effects and Daytona recessed headlights. The tinted base/metal flake/top and clear coat paint and overall appearance is a 7/8 and could easily be a 9/10 with some finishing touches. There are several small clearcoat stress blemishes on the hood (see the last photo).
Over $34,000 in parts (documented) plus over 2,000 hours of labor have been invested in this vehicle over the past 10 years. The vehicle was professionally appraised several years ago at $43,200 and is insured accordingly. The vehicle has always been stored in a heated and dehumidified garage. The current mileage (since full restoration) is 1790 miles.
