Best advise I can offer is to keep looking on EBay. They do show up occasionally. You can also search your local Craigslist and surrounding areas.
Here’s one sold last  November:

Or if you want Beige, here’s a BIN

That’s about a 3.5 hr drive.

If I were in the market, i’d be taking a road trip

Thanks for the tip. I bought it I got it. Nice body but needs dental work! Just looking for chrome now. Thanks for the help, Mark

Mark - whew, glad you made the purchase. I didn’t want it to get lonely all by itself. I’m glad it went to a good home that will restore it. Eric’s lead will point you to the chrome bumpers and stuff, bee ready to take out a small mortgage!  

If you really get hooked, here’s a basket case Corvette,  just northwest of Chicago

https://rockford.craigslist.org/atq/d/corvette-tether-gas-powered/6475424500.html

“Make me an offer” ?

Edit: if you have not read thru it, here’s a link to Really good Corvette resto. You might PM him to get details on those plastic latches, so you can rebuild the front hinges the same way.

Excellent looking work!! Body polished up nicely. The two listing of chrome are still active on Ebay. both still under $100! but wait till the last minute or 4 seconds for them dastardly snipers Sad
