1984 ish vette shortened frame with either a spitfire or a mga coupe or mga body . We will widen the body to cover the vette wheels . The vette we have has a six speed and a 350 with stock 300 horsepower . we are going to sell all the body parts from the vette . We are thinking widen the body by a foot . add a shot of nitrous .

I love the Challenge a much as the next guy, but if that were my Corvette I'd be selling it for a profit.

A young man on meth ragged it out , sorta white trash car . Broken windshield nothing works . Body is worth more than the car . We are thinking 2300 pounds in total weight .

karl,

if you know how to remove them without damage i could use the passenger side rear quarter panel.

i think it requires heat and patience but not sure how much of either.

fyi that's an 84-89 car. if i could see more i could narrow it down for you. definitely not a 94.

If it still has a vin it's easy enough to date it.

This is full of cool!

How much was the vette? I'm shocked you could get one with a six speed and a body like that for challenge money. Good deal.

We tow for the Sheriff it was a crackheadills car , we liened it and the TITLED owner came back and said he had sold the car . Never got paid and cracky did not take it out of his name . We cut a great deal I got it for just over / half challenge price .
