help with trade

Ok guy have not had a third gen since I was 17 (only 23 now), but been out so long I dont know what a good deal is

on my side of the trade a 2003 suzuki sv650 s 5000 miles garage kept

the offer
1988 z28 ragtop, says it has corvette suspension pkg etc.. that the carpet is ruff, top is great 140000 miles says it runs like a top

i know my bike is worth 3000 , all i need to know is if the car is worth that? and what to look for to know it is what he says it is, even the motor he said ls3 350 i think......

will try and add a pic

thanks Jason

oh and deal is going down tomorrow morning so any help asap guys

check/compare VIN codes as well as well as RPO codes from thirdgen.org...

looks decent minus the rims...
based on that mileage, IMO - it wouldn't be worth it unless it were a 350 engine or extremely well running 305 which even then isnt worth more than 2500-3k

8th digit will be an 8, if it's truly a 5.7 350 engine.

First off THEY DID NOT PUT 350s in Verts from the factory, they were 305 cars at best.

when people start saying CORVETTE engine, suspension pck, corvette anything with the 3rd gens I get really really nerves, due to the fact that everyone thinks that the are that way from the factory. they are not. The 350 thats in the camaro is not the SAME as the 350 in the corvette, will explain that later.

OK if its truely an LS3 v8, then you want to see the paper work for the install & make sure it was put in the car.


over all the car looks good shape & yes I would pay $3k for that car, maybe even 4k. depends on how it truely ran & the over all shape of the car.



when you are buying a vehicle from someone who doesnt know anything about the car please ask for all paper work, maintace & what have you. If a new engine was installed make sure you get all that paper work as well.
Also make sure someone who DOES know what they are talking about goes with you. but tell them to keep their mouth shut & only talk to you lol.

have someone you know & Trust go over the car, Each engine is stamped with the vin number of the car & the engine code number.
the Lt1s should be right about the water pump get that number & run it through the computer see what comes up.

now the problem with that is the car came from the factory with a 305 engine in them, The bodys would twist with 350s in them thats why they didnt put them in & most people that say they have a 350 in the convertibles have either done some sub frame work on the car or is lying about it.

even for that car with a 305 & its still worth 3k.

Yeah honestly it would not have bothered me if he had said its a 305 from the beginning but then once he found out i wanted a mechanic to look it was well let me check the numbers, and yeah i ment to say it was a swap, then well just checked numbers it is a 305, so one of two things man didn't care enough about car to know what he had... or two he was tryin to pull a fast one and got tripped either way i dont want a car that someones just tryin to dump

Ok last thing on this guys, guy sent me a text said he'd take 2500 cash today for it, I still have not seen the car but this sounds little too good to let go even for a 305 vert, once again interior may need work

it does not hurt to look at the car, but Make sure even if someone doesnt go with you, make sure you test drive it
