    Need help pricing 62 Corvette Project

    Hey gang. I need some help feeling out market value on our 1962 Corvette build. Long story short: The build has taken too long, gotten too expensive, and we just want out. Already have a few other classics and this one is simply taking up space. It’s time to cut ties and let someone else finish it off into their dream car.

    Ill include details from the shop that was working on it below but the basics are an original 1962 corvette body, Art Morrison GT Sport chassis, compact IRS, basically all of the suspension and brakes, interior pieces are there but you’d want to redo all of the upholstered bits. Set up for LS-platform but no engine transmission or wheels. Most of the car is there but it needs paint, chassis assembly, and finish work. About $45-$50k just in new parts (chassis included) and 6 months of work doing all of the body modifications and glasswork.

    Was as thinking of asking $100k OBO. We’ve got waaay more than that in it but some of that is our own fault. Want to see what others think it’s worth. If it were finished the way we originally planned I’d like to think it would be a $200k+ car.

    ***having trouble uploading pics from my phone so will do those from the computer when I get home in the morning.

    Tough to get $100k for a project in that state imho, especially on this forum. Expect to get 50 to 60 cents on the dollar spent. You would be better off finishing it and taking it to Barrett Jackson.

    Try the Corvette forum. They have lots of opinions over there....
