Looks like a corvette salvage yard. Philadelphia Facebook under

“ Corvette Project cars and parts.” That is the search term for market place.

A couple of photos.

FL had a great yard 20 years ago, I think it’s gone now.

I used to go to a Corvette salvage yard in Bristol, Pa north of Philly. Might be the same place.

I was able to get a bunch of quality, original parts there. Had to be over 15 years since I last went there. Business was Contemporary Corvette and they had acres of wrecked Corvettes of all generations. I think they are still there.

I was going to put these in the weight loss thread, but didn’t want to mess up 69427’s thread. :)

This was on marketplace for $5000 the other day. 2000lbs is my guess. 1980 vette.

Looks like fun (but dangerous).

Buy, 5000$ corvette, sell $2500 worth of parts, drive like you stole it, sell for$5000. :)

I’m Finally working on cars again on the Christmas break, although I spent most of it cleaning up trees that blew over. Thank goodness I got a Stihl saw for Christmas.

Retired Again!
HAHA - Any nose/tail is going to need serious flares. With the birdcage and main section guess it makes it street legal (lights, etc.). Otherwise, go Exo-Vette.
 chassis 500hp 6 spd street legal exoskeleton c4 1
But, at $19K more serious money.

Cheers - Jim

I checked, sounds like those are 2000 - 2100 lbs. But, rainy days would be terrible.

This guy is advertising lots of pats:

“327 with 300 horsepower. Original as it can be never apart.Carburetor, water pump, alternator, starter, plug wires, bell housing, transmission all numbers and date codes are correct. This came out of a 1967 corvette convertible with 48,619 miles. I have a short video of it running it sounds great no smoke and it idled perfectly. Also has the original 4 speed transmission with the original shifter. Selling as a complete unit I will not sell parts. $5500. Will listen to serious offers from someone who knows what this is”

Somewhat local CL ad.

“1963 Corvette convertible
I recently purchased this car from a local family after sitting in a garage since 1979. This is NOT an original car by any means. It is an old amateur race car. Original motor is gone. The car has not run in over 40 years. Frame is not rusty. It would make a perfect resto mod or very cool C2 Corvette racer
Only call if serious. I don’t answer texts or emails. $29,500 cash”

Right here
Looks like it's still available. I'm kind of surprised. It will be interesting to see what happens with collector car prices with the current economic slide we are on. And, the aging of the current population of buyers.

I usually don’t post stuff I’m considering buying. But, this car keeps me going back and checking. :)

My guess is the current inflation/recession and the picture of the two guys grinning from ear to ear are two factors. You know they got it cheap!

I just bought a rear vert clip and was happy with the price but my guess was the guy selling it got it for hauling away! :) He wasn’t a corvette guy and seemed pretty happy.
