The next day I tried to get my 74 back and it was sold the first hour on The Chevy dealers lot. The mahogany paint was gorgeous as it had to be wet sanded and buffed before delivery but that interior as beautiful as it was the car had a recd dash, just did not go with the exterior paint. Really missed my 74 , had the removeable hardtop. I really do like Dr. Ts that is so rare and beautiful
    Thank you for those kind words. I had a 1974 Corvette L82 4 speed. Loved that car. Click image for larger version

      Thank you, I'll be driving a ZR1 Corvette when they finally come out. Can't wait. I love the C8 mid-engine design. It's the only car I'd give up my Nissan GTR for!

          My brother had a red 66 425 hp 4 spd like yours and we we raced (as of course brothers would). His 66 425 against my 67 435. Absolutely dead even!!! LOL we couldn't pull away from each other. What a rush. Two side exhaust big blocks racing feet apart from each other grabbing rubber on the shifts. I'll never forget it.

                      I'll bet red back to white was challenging for whoever did the work.
                      I think for a good Corvette Painter its just business as usual. I over saw the red paint change originally it seemed pretty standard. Lacquer paint was available then. My major disappointment was that the white paint was original and in great shape. I won my first top flight award with the original paint. Back in the 80's there wasn't such a push to keep Vette paint as is. Everyone back then restored and over restored. If I had to do it over again I would have left it as is.
