They are more like $230,000. And when youre the only place in the country selling them, you really can ask what you like.
(which they certainly were at the time of the above posts)

Who is doing the conversion for $44,000 + GST Panther??? Give us all the info mate :o

no pics of the air bag, and yes it dosn't have the word corvette on it, this is a complete new dash, not the original one chopped up and glued back together, we are still experimenting with the application on the word corvette, until we are 100% happy with it, it wont happen, you would not beleive the hours and cost that has gone into providing just the letters

I bet I would;

Took me THREE hours just to apply (after measuring and lining up) the new CORVETTE letters on the C3 rear!

It would never pass RAWS if it was chopped up and glued so im led to believe.

Interesting...Would have to be due to integrity issues with the bonding I guess?

No idea, but it has to be a certain standard especially around the airbag. Panther will know why :o

your both correct, our trims are covered in New Zealand, for a few reasons, I did the lettering on my 86, I will post a pic tomorrow, and you will see what I mean by getting the detail correct, having the dies made is not easy or cheap either, thats the only thing about the conversion that bugs me, the guy that owns it is not the slightest bit concerned, he has big plans for this car

by the way, cut ,chopped and glued molded back together, wouldn't pass raws???, its already been done, once you start to see a few around you will tell the difference between the conversions, Iam not bagging any, they are just done differently
