I bought this 1980 Corvette from a Crackhead for $1,000. The 305 removerd and a carburated 350 put in it's place. I covered the fenders with expanding foam, sanded and shaped them, and then hand laid the fiberglass, primed and painted it all myself. I cut the dashboard out all the way to the firewall and hand fabricated a new all steel one and ripped out every wire and ran all brand new. The buttons on the steering wheel work and control the working auto jacks that raise and lower the car off the ground with the push of a button. The whole car took 2 years to make.
