Recommended Restorers


Has anyone any recommendations for classic corvette (C3) restoration? Ideally in the East Sussex/North Kent areas.

Mechanical and interior refurbishment, no bodywork required.

Thanks

Re: Recommended Restorers


That's for the compliment Mick, I'd love to help out a fellow enthusiast but no time for my own projects lately what with work, family and buying cars that have already sold!
I hear the '68 owners are dwindling, jumping ship for a better year.

And you have CCM Vettes on the A2/M20.

Good to hear you’re working on it. There’s a 68 owner with the car in boxes and garages spread over the west side of Thetford and a long haired 68 owner who always has his head under the hood in Romford. They are out there just not posting in the project section.

Got to finish the 67 coupe first then i'll look in all those boxes,but have been buying nos and good used parts as they become available.Looking forward to getting that 435hp 68 started but a long way to go before that,the rolling frame is finished.
Hope you find somebody Phil,all the best , John

Long haired '68 owner doesn't actually class his car as a 'project' car (even though other people would argue the point) he regards it as a 'driver' vehicle Scratchchin
