My girlfriends dad just asked if I wanted to rebuild his 1975 stingray. So of course I said yes unfortunately I do not know what I would need to rebuild it.

...... Well son with an obvious lack of talent, guess you'd need a whoppin' bank account !~! ... Good luck with the most lame Vette ( HP,etc.) ever built .. a 75', pitiful ! What, rated at 175 horse ? Hell, some years ago I had a 79' L48, wouldn't pull tha' hat off your head ! ... OK, seriously, what " 7jimmy7" said is a good start...... BUT, with bucks to burn (?) drop in a 350 horse crate backed with a "kitted" 700R4......... BUT ! WAIT ! .. If it's an original 4spd, DON'T F. with it, keep it original ! ... Sooo many C3's back then were automatics that a 4spd car is kinda' rare ! ... Again , Good Luck !

the 75 is a crap car. too heavy, no power, cheap interior, the break calipers will need to be replaced, the rear leaf spring is too soft, the anti- roll bars are too weak and the urethane bumpers need to be replaced. the 75 is a money pit. that you will never get any money back out of, good luck.

Sorry buddy but if first impressions mean anything, it really doesn't sound like you are qualified to rebuild anything. No offence but if you were, you wouldn't be on here asking such a vague question.
