I am listing my 69 corvette for sale as a previous purchaser could not pay for the car and deal fell through. I am currently preparing a new 67 corvette for Group Sb Historic racing and need to part ways with my corvette. I have built and owned this car for over 8 years and have really enjoyed driving it and using it in a variety of different driving events. I built the car to replicate the way a corvette looked in the racing period of the late 60s early 70's it gets plenty of attention everytime i take to the track. This is a well sorted fast car.
This car has full Victorian rego and can be used for heaps of different events, it makes a great club racing car, historic sprints, regularity sprints, targa events and any other track day you like. In the last few years i have been doing Historic regularity sprints at all the big Historic meets throughout the year.
Price is $50,000 neg.

Nice Video! Did you win?

I was running the car in Regularity nominated time (dial in). I think i was 8th out of 60.

P.S. I think this car should go to you Andy, then you could have a road 69 and a track 69!!!:p

15-16-17 as far as i know are available, not sure about 18. All offsets custom made are possible. This guy makes them from his garage at home, not cheap but a great period style wheel. Harry 0413 131060 he is in Rosebud Victoria.

It is sad but it has given me a start in driving on circuits and it does not fit the class I want to get into. The new car will be built to the rules and I hope it's competitive.

Hi Deano

It's been for sale for 6 months on my105.com.au and sold through that website. I only listed it on usmuscle recently as another option.
I'm busily buying parts with the cash, ha ha.:p
