These were from a project car that after I stripped it to the frame, there was simply too much to fix. Sold the frame, kept needed bits for the next car and have this complete set of 86 GT panels.

The paint color is Corvette Torch Red Dupont Nason.

If you don't see it in the pic I have it bundled up in a box to be sold with the set. The passenger side door isn't shown and is still attached to door.

Price is 700$ obo. That may seem a bit high for some but one of the reasons I bought the car was for the relatively good paint job. Short of repairing the hood scoop hole you get a pretty good paintjob and a GT body. The paint job was a panel off body job.

Set includes fenders wells (off to the side in the pics) which I would say are in fair to good condition. The passenger side tail light is probably recoverable as it has delamination but the driver side as you can see has a big crack in it...

Sail panel windows are not original nor aftermarket but lexan reproductions from the PO. Pretty good from afar but up close the jig is up obviously.

If anyone is seriously interested I can provide hi-res pics of any of the panels.

Salvaged and bagged as much of the attachment hardware as possible.

Pic of car in which the panels were removed:















Not shown is a set of Torch Red manual rear view windows. I also have a set of power mirrors and harness if interested.

I might be willing to ship, but obviously shipping the rear clip will not be cheap.

Warmest Regards...

Oh, forgot to add, this also includes the fastback rear wiring harness.

If you come close to the asking price I'll throw in two of the 18" x 7.5" wheels with yokohama 225/50/18 rubber with 60-80% tread left... why only 2 you ask, because the person who purchased the frame up threw two of them in his truck when I wasn't looking.. talk about pissed... The wheels are Drifz 207's painted silver.

Any suggestion how to transport this? Flat trailer behind my pickup perhaps? Are the bumper support/honeycomb included too (as needed to convert from base model)?

Well hopefully someone has better luck with these parts than I did. I spent friday night struggling with a rusted trailer hitch ball only to find out that I didn't have enough drop in the hitch to allow the trailer to mount appropriately. Saturday morning I drive to U-Haul to get a trailer, they don't have the tools required to mount the ball for their tongue. After a trip to the parts store, back to u-haul, and I'm on the road to Atlanta area, roughly a 4hour drive. Everything was going great until I stopped for gas, about 90 minutes away from Marc's place. I wasn't even empty, but it seemed like a good time to fuel up, grab some snacks, etc. Well that wasn't the best of ideas because the truck started to hiccup as soon as I got on the highway, and stalled out. Luckily I was able to coast to the side of the road where it was well lit and safe. 5 hours later, a friend shows up with a car load of tools, and a new fuel pump. Another few hours later, I somehow managed to get the truck running again after changing the fuel pump on the side of the road. Stupid me, tired and exhausted, and nauseous from the smell of fuel, pulls onto the highway without the hood fully latched. Both hinges broke, and it creased the hood, FML. All in all, a terrrible day, and I didn't even end up with the parts. I finally made it home at 3:30 this am, after returning the trailer to U-Haul. Bah...









And the result of my own stupidity (Both sides are like this):

How much would shipping be to Michigan? (48706 Zip Code)
Surprisingly enough, I just picked up another rust free frame, but it came without body panels of any kind!

Maybe send it via truck line like SAIA?

Honestly, not too sure. I looked into just shipping the rear GT clip and related parts for an interested member on a 4'x5' crate and that was going to be about 300$ alone.

Just for clarification, after Jncomutt's failed journey this weekend he decided not to get the GT panels so they are still for sale.

If you still have these when I get my tax return next month, I want them if they can be shipped for under 300 to kansas.

Unfortunately, there is probably no way the entire set of panels could be shipped for under 300$

I was quoted 300+ just for the GT clip on a 4' x 5' crate.

I did.. never answers his phone regardless of what number I call him from. Contacted the sheriff and as I expected he said take it to small claims court... It's not worth my time for a set of DrifZ's 130$ wheels with cheap worn tires on them. Least he didn't get the ones with the Yokohamas. Now if they were two RAYs or Volks or HRE's.........

I've had fun flagging his craigslist posts though..
