Around here there was a '77 Vette that went for 2k, wasn't bad but every window was broke out from kid vandals, and there were a couple of shots w/ a 12 gauge into the driver side door, probably the same kids.

I posted an 82 for sale- its in the classified section if interested.
Here is a picture.

Hope this isn't seen as advertising, it is within the topic here.

If you aren't in a hurry you should be able to find something. I have seen rolling C-2 and C-3 chassis for around $1500 in the past couple years. One was a 1984 for $1200.

My ex wife has a 76 that is about 80% complete, still needs floorboards, interior installation, (has all new parts) and installation of some bolt on engine stuff. (alt, ps pump, ac comp, etc.) it is a 4 speed car, T top, new emblems, 67 big block stinger style scoop, with new brakes (calipers, rotors and hoses), suspension and body bushings, new steering valve and ram, new radiator, F41 springs, new tires and rally wheels, rebuilt trans, new clutch, 454 engine, rebuilt but never fired, should be around 500HP. ceramic headers, fresh paint. Another 2-3K and this could be an outstanding car. She would like to get $9K for it. (Clean Florida Title) PM me for more info. There is a pic in my album called current project, this was taken when I finished squirting the paint. (2.5 yrs ago)

Beings that you are 16 there is a difference as to what you call a beater Vette and what someone considerably older calls a beater Vette. The main difference being affordability. What are you looking to spend for a beater Vette would more determine if it is actually a beater, a rebuildable, or so far gone you would have to pay someone to take it off of your hands. If you only have $300-500 and looking for a beater, then forget it. It won't happen. If you have $3000-4000 and looking for a beater then you will find something in that price range but will more than likely need to add that much more to it just to make it road worthy and safe.

Look up "oxymoron" in the dictionary -- there'll be a jumbo shrimp, a criminal mastermind, and a beater 'vette.

And yes -- I've seen any number of BEATEN Corvettes, but they go for 10G up.

Beater Vette

Here in Sacramento I see C3's and C4's at least a couple times a year for 2-4 K. Check Craigs list for Sacramento Ca.

The early C4s go for cheap around here, usually they have too many miles of rode hard and put away wet. toss in the electrical and instrumentation troubles inherent in the early ones, 3-5K is not out of the question. As mentioned earlier, you will spend at least that much more to make it somewhat reliable and safe.
