1975 Corvette

  1. I’ve bought a 1963 split window corvette ,2 plus Years ago, from man that owned it 47 years and 3 months, it was sterling silver when I bought it , I thought it was all matching numbers, after searching for 2 years for the right team to restore, we discovered, the car was born from factory color white, then discovered the engine,is a 1963 engine,but not matching numbers,

    My plan was to spend around $100,000.00 doing a full frame off restoration, now I’m discouraged, So now I’m considering going $150,000.00 resto mode, or should I go back stock,,what’s my best investment .
