Thanks Tom. Candy and I will be down in Russ' area and I might go see him. We been friends for a long time and this might be the time to ask him for a loan!!!!!!! Wouldn't cost anything to ask I guess????
I have a customer with a 69 corvette, some years back he was complaining that when he hit a bump rust would fall in his lap. I pulled the interior trim out and found the windshield frame was rusted out. Not what I was thinking when I said I can fix that.
C1's are tight, when I was in high school a good friend of mine got a 57 Corvette. The problem was he was 6'6" and could not fit with the big steering wheel, he had to put a tiny aftermarket steering wheel on it in order to drive it. His head would touch the top of the hardtop but it was a cool car. I remember it had a three speed in it originaly but he bought a 4 speed out of a GTO that had a tall HURST shifter that almost came up to the top of the dashboard it kinda reminded me of one of the Rat Fink cars with the gear shift sticking out of the top of the car, Lol.
That 250 HP 327 was the "base" engine in the 1962 Corvette, but most upgraded to the 300 or 340 horse engine. The PG was an option, as a three speed was the "base" transmission. Not to many were ordered with a 250 horse Powerglide, so from a "Corvette enthusiast" perspective, that's kinda rare. Like most folk, I prefer more horses and a four speed . I thought it being in Missouri that it might be worth the look.
I've driven a 327 PG Corvette (1965) that had PW and AC and it was quite nice .
