For Sale: 1969 Corvette vintage road race
69 Vette Road Racer
.RELISTED WITH CLEARER DESCRIPTION
...selling as a roller with no motor
The car is a very well thought out racer from the early days , when it was a 4 speed 327/325 car.
We put a new master cylinder, and new dated 5 point belts in it , changed the oil and checked the brakes, and all ,the fluids, etc and took it to TGPR for some laps for an assessment.
Car ran strong, handled good, and had no bad habits.
Everything went well, until one piston grenaded ( GM cast HC dome)leaving just the rod and wrist pin.. the rest went into the crankcase
We have just removed and torn down the motor, and the block is junk...... but we did find that it was a super well built motor that appears to be built about 2005 using the best stuff available but should have had forged pistons. It had very little time on it , due to the owners age and poor health.
This is a a good restoration project, ..it is available now, until we start work on it...
It can easily be retuned to a 4 speed car, as the clutch pedal is still there.
