I Love my Corvette!

Posts: 1
 
Proud & happy owner of a 69 427 L36 Coupe, matching numbers & is largely original otherwise except for the vintage air. Will be looking for some assistance in 2 main areas at some point.

1. Gaining headroom (I'm 6'4"). I'm quite happy to drive with the tops off but my missus likes the tops on (but she's also a good foot plus shorter than me). Will probably look at different seats rather than playing with the original seats which I'll just put in storage.
2. Swapping the Muncie out for a 5 speed. Same again, will then store the Muncie somewhere in the garage rather than play with it or sell etc.

I'm part of a US Muscle Car club in Sydney. While I do like US Muscle Cars in general, particularly from the late 60's & early 70's in most variations, it's the C3 Corvette that I loved as a kid & it's the car I've wanted above all others.

Cheers, Brad
