1982 corvette rescue

Recommended Posts

  I purchased an 82 corvette last fall, I know what was I thinking. well its been a struggle to say the least but I AM finally seeing the end of the tunnel.The car had no engine or trans both removed by the PO. I got boxes of parts the block (junk) heads (more junk) trans 700r4 first generation. So I bought engine from buddy out of 69 nova he wants a big block. rebuilt the trans. and sorted out a mile of wiring. The car was originally a dual throttle body (go figure use new technology and double it for good measure. I don't have an engineering degree so I don't understand.

fixed a myriad of issues along the way drank a lot of beer in the process. Spent some quality time with my son, me and buddies drank the beer after he went to bed so no hating.

Definitely not a hater. I love the Corvette, just wish it was made by some company other than Chevy.

 

Yours is magnificent. Fantastic job.

Thank,s it has been a challenge to put it back together. The change from TBIx2 to four bbl in itself was a pain there is no room between engine and hood. I don't know if I would tackle another vette unless it was in one piece before I got it.
