About “Dad's Corvette”

First, I have to say THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF THE ACTUAL CAR! A friend had this picture posted in a car show album, but it looks nearly identical to the way Dad's car did (except that Dad's car had a hood scoop and a white stripe) before it was destroyed in a house fire when I was about 7 years old.

This is the car that started my interest in cars in the first place. I'd lie on my back under the car with him and try to help with whatever he was doing with it. He had me hand tools to him (usually, the WRONG tools!), but ha wouldn't let me actually do any of the mechanical work. I did help him keep it clean, washing the sides and dusting the interior.

About “"Lucy"”

Found this car abandoned behind a warehouse. Trunk full of junk, interior looked like a bomb went off in it, and the small block in it was on it's last leg. The trim tag shows it was originally brown with a sandelwood top and interior. 350 2bbl with air, no rear spoiler.

 

Specs for “Dad's Corvette”

To the best of my memory, it had the usual Corvette stuff:
V-8, 4-speed stick, AM/FM radio, etc. As far as 0-60 and 1/4 mile times go, I didn't care! All I know is it was the most thrilling ride a young girl could have ever asked for. After this Vette, no car with a solid roof would do for me!

454 .030 over, Comp Cams vavletrain, Edelbrock dual 4bbl intake with 600cfm carbs, MSD ignition, 700r4 trans w2300 stall. eaton posi unit w/ 3:42 gears.

Dad liked to keep his cars mainly stock, so I assume there weren't many modifications if any at all.
