Is a 74 corvette worth restoring?

Asked by Feb 21, 2016 at 10:48 PM about the 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: General

I have a chance to get one under 3K that has a perfect body, found nothing
wrong with the frame. Car is complete. Body has already been completely
sanded and could be ready for paint soon?

That era Vet is not the most desirable right now, but at some point they might be. If you like the car and have the money, why not? But don't restore it if you want to make money, that never usually works.

yes- these used to be the poor boys of the Corvette world- but no more- a '74 is much more desirable than anything past '78- and the '84 to 2000 C4s are now the real dogs-
