SOLD: GTM #300 Build with 98% of all needed parts & tons of upgrades $35K OBO

SOLD

Unfortunately interests and priorities change, and it just doesn't look like I am ever going to get back to finishing this build.
<< Scratch that, it's official, I'm NOT going to finish it, and due to divorce the ex wants her half >>

So... if you're in the market or thinking about building your own, I have already done a whole lot of the grunt work to get it to it's current state, which can be summarized as: steerable rolling chassis with engine & gearbox installed, this makes shipping and transport options easier.

The car is titled and licensed in WA as a KITV (Kit Vehicle)

The majority of donor parts are from a 2002 Z06 with 56K miles that ended up shiny side down.
LS6 Engine, Porsche G50/03 modded and upgraded by Erik with LSD, taller 5th gear and more.
Lots and lots of upgrades and interior customization items, see the attached for complete breakdown of what has been added, including my cost on everything. I have receipts and contact info for most all items purchased.

Some of the major work I've done outside of the standard assembly includes:
Bead blasting all Corvette suspension pieces to look like new
Blast, grind off Corvette logos, rebuild and powder coat Z06 brake calipers
Modify and install power tilt/telescoping steering column
Press out all rubber bushings and press in new PFADT poly bushings
De-grease and clean LS6 engine to look like new

Standard Assembly items completed:
All suspension installed, steering rack, column wheel, installed
Engine, Clutch and Gearbox installed
Pedal assembly with master cylinders, all brake and clutch hard lines run
Heat/AC unit installed and hoses attched (a real PITA that was)
About 50% of interior sheet metal panels installed.
Drivers seat on sliding track installed

Next on the list were: fuel tanks, radiator and coolant lines, passenger seat, 1st test fitting and of the main body

So at this point, much of how the finished product will look is up to the new owner, about the only think that wouldn't make sense to change is that orange is either the primary or a secondary color.

Besides body & paint expense, the only other parts I don't have that come to mind are: Fuel Pump & Filter, Fuel Tank crossover for aluminum tanks.

Well over $54K invested to date.
Besides what's on the list, I probably have another $1000 or so worth of items and tools that I purchased specifically for the build that will be included.

So asking price, I understand there’s finished ones for sale out there for less than I have into parts, and I don’t expect to get all my money or any of my labor back out of it, but if it looks like I will have to take an enormous loss to get out of it, I’ll just keep it.
<< Nope, not anymore, it's gotta go >>

Asking $35,000

Let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks,

Very nice, sir. I have been perusing the market for something in-line with this. Could you possibly email me some pictures [email protected]

Also, I know you dont have a set asking price yet, but could you please let me know a ballpark estimate so I can make sure I am not wasting time for either of us?

Thanks,
-Chad

since it hasn't sold in 4 yrs why not pay someone to finish it. ship it to shane or use a local builder. I know of one in Shelton who might be interested in finishing it and I own a tow truck that can ship it down there...……...
