Hardtop C12 on Pcar

Our old C12 is back for sale. It's on Pcarmarket. I hope it finds the right home. This was one of my all time favorites.

Im of the opinion that car needs a 427ci LS engine. LPE wasn't ideal but if the car will be driven at all, it would be way more enjoyable.

Seems opinions differ on that one. When we had the car, it had the 427 and the original engine on the stand. That 427 was a screamer and a blast to drive. But it is nice the car is back to the original setup.

Pete Callaway just put a Callaway built 427 in his C12....making it perfect IMO.

I agree, as long as you have the original engine, why not keep the big cube motor in place?

Interesting it went to $113K no sale on BaT, new dealer pulls the 427 and relists for $165K w/o the 427.

I've got a new katech C5R 427 build for this very reason. :thumbs
