I'm seeing quite a few 93's around here from 9K-20K with most asking around 13K. Probably a good time to buy with winter setting in...

What are the mileage of those? Any of them with both tops or at least convertible (as I think I can add a hardtop later if I have to)
I want one that has a odometer of 25K original miles or less, less the better. I see many convertibles selling without the hardtop. There is provision for a hardtop later isn't there?

Now all I got to do is sell the Chrysler and I'm in the game of Corvettes.

yes Jack,
as with most Corvette convertibles, the remove able hard top would just latch to the windshield and rear pins would snap into the rear deck while the soft top would remain tucked under the rear deck lid.

OK. Next question is, I wonder how hard it would be to find a Hard Top? Probably need to research this..

Jack I wouldn't worry about the HT as you'll most likely use the soft top 99% of the time. To use the HT you'll have to invest in some type of lift mech in your garage. It's almost impossible to install by your self with out it.  Most women are not strong enough to help &  hold the HT up & out to go over the car. If you don't like the soft top you can replace it like I did for a few hundred dollars.

When you get there Jack,
You are welcome to come see my lifts in my garage. I have one for each hardtop. Makes installing the hardtop a snap. In fact I prefer to do it myself now as I can control the protection of my paint all by myself! LOL! Not that I don't trust others . . . . . .

Well, I put the Chrysler Touring 200 S on craigslist this weekend and got a bunch of emails. I go "Wow!" maybe I got the price too low at $16,950. Then I found out I had it listed for $1695.  Embarrassed

Haven't had a bite since... this might take awhile as I'm not going to give it away.  Tongue

Chris sent me two extremely nice 1993 & 2003 Corvette brochures last week and boy, are they real nice... they don't have nice brochures like that anymore. Thanks Chris!  Smiley

Well, change of plans folks!  Shocked
Getting a low mileage 40th anniversary Corvette went out the window as I didn't get enough for my Chrysler when I sold it. So it is going to be a C3 again... but you know, I still like the C3 style better anyways... I just won't have enough for a chrome bumper one this time around.

Now I just got a real nice 1977 C3... so check the 1977 category for info on my new toy!
