For Sale - 1972 Corvette Roadster Builder/Project


Recommended Posts


I guess by definition, I am a 1-post wonder. My wife is actually typing this, because my skills on the computer, writing, typing, etc., are lacking. This would take me an entire week....That is why I do not participate in forums. I assure you, however, that I am honest and reliable, and I am happy to speak with you about this car for sale - assuming it is allowed per the forum rules. I have had this project for well over 15 years - and had always planned to build a nice driver. I, like many do, have put off the project too long. I have some unexpected medical expenses due to progressive health issues now, and have to let it go. I really want it to land with someone who will finish it and enjoy it.

These are the details:

This vehicle is virtually complete.

In the interest of full disclosure, I do fiberglass work, specializing in the older Corvettes. I believe my work is generally highly regarded, and my name, Walt Piper, is trusted. (My wife insisted I include that...) I will be glad to answer any additional questions you have or post additional photos. I am asking $13,500. We are in Strawberry, AZ, about 100 miles NE of the Phoenix area.

Yes and yes.

I put an ACI 1-piece front end on it with all the bonding strips.

Nice C3 project. I know all to well what is involved in getting a C3 back into shape. C3s RULE! :thumbs

Well it's a little out of my price range and probably a little to much work for me...but very tempting.

Thanks for providing the additional info...

Thanks for letting me know....

I sure do understand.

Just be aware, I have some room for negotiation. I have to sell this. If you know anyone who might be interested, please pass the info on.
