Like any project, research and price shop accordingly... Resto-mod or Original?

Not sure how they compare with anything else posted, they were one of the few I knew of in the early 2000s, used to get the catalog every month but Ecklers.

Paragon has a good printed catalog with parts diagrams with technical sidebars, Zip, Corvette Central, Corvette Pacifica, Eklers has aggressive pricing but then kills you in freight. I'm local to them so it works for me. Just stay far away from Corvette Mods. Covid has things messed up right now for parts. What year are you working on.

with c3's that have sat that long replace all the calipers with ones that have been stainless lined. if there is any rust in the fuel tank just replace it, it is cheaper in the long run. I have a 67 427 tri power conv. in the shop right now that has sat for the last 6 years and the fuel tank is so rusted it is barely scrap. replace any of the rubber hoses and belts, rebuild the carb and drive it.
