Eh, another option on my Stingray project....

  1. I've always loved the chrome bumpered Stingrays, but I've never found a reasonably priced one until now. I have three C3's right now, an '82, a '77, and a '76. The '77 I'm selling and the '76 was going to be my next project car. The '82 is being painted right now, and it'll be my regular driver.

    OK, I'm all set to begin ordering parts for the '76 when I run across a '72 in Tampa. The '72 is $7,500 with a straight body and no rust. The '76 ($2,000) needs bodywork and the floor panels are rusted. Nothing major though. Both will get new engines, trannies, suspension, interiors, paint, etc. They will also both cost about the same to modify. The '72 is about 300 lb. lighter then the '76.

    What do you guys think? Should I buy the '72 or should I just stick with the '76 I already have?

    First pic is '72 and second is '77 ('76 looks just like it, except it's black). Third pic is the potential of the '72 (only as a coupe).
