if memory serves me correctly Jack's YellowJACKet's VIN was 209 which made him the lowest production number on the Forum Alan's (My former) 1977 was second with the number 242. I enjoyed researching that car's history and it had a lot of history as I was the 5th owner and when I bought it in 2004 it had a scant 48576 on the odometer. it was and still is in great shape and very close to being in it's original factory condition given the number of different owners the car has had that in itself is pretty amazing

Took it out this morning to the bank & post office, it ran like new ..even used the air conditioner for awhile to get it circulating. Probably one of the best running original 77's out there. Even got a few thumbs up Cool

I don't think I have to tell you Alan what that car meant to me for you know first hand how much I loved that Corvette, but, in 2007, when things turned bleak economically for us and we were forced to make hard choices (things like that happen) it served us in another manner I am happy to still see her here on this Forum and also happy to know a guy who can appreciate the car for what it is owns her! no doubt, you have taken what I and Bob ( C-17 Jetmender) had and made her even better heck, just the fact the A/C is operational once again is proof of that--btw, when I owned it it was thought that there was a vaccumm leak in the door actuators not allowing the blending door to close and thus letting some heat by pass into the cabin, if you remeber we took the car to a friend of yours and he checked out the system and said it was holding the old R-12 just fine and that was what he thought was going on, was that the problem?

The old R-12 was not holding  so I converted it to R134. I also installed a cutoff valve to stop hot water from going through the heater. I open it once a month to circulate the water.

I have an early build 77, aug 24 '76  and it does have the red engine in it.    Kind of cool to learn the little differences in them.
