What's with all the cars with engine swaps? Why not one with a matching numbers engine? It would be worth more.
To be perfectly frank, if you are set on getting one with a non-original engine, look for something better than a low HP 70s 350, or a low hp 80s TPI. Think 409, big block, LSx...
We know what the ticket was on the first one. WHat's the price on the bubble top?
Also, I see that you still have it described as a "Corvette engine". Did you ever confirm that it was in fact a Vette 350?
Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.
