I Just received bad news on the 69-BB

I just got a call from the shop that inspected the 69 BB and here is what they said:

A) Frame rusted real bad, no holes but very weak in 5 places
B) Oil leakes in rear of engine and at the rear-end, heater core disconnected, Rad has very small leak
C) Shop also said this was not an orginal BB, The engine appears to be re-stamped and the Trany and rear end are 100% re-stamped

I called the owner and he claims this is all news to him. If the frame was in good shape I would have still bought the Vette at a discount $$$$ of my orginal offer. I guss I will continue to look. Quick lesson here get a pro to inspect an old vette. Best $100 I have spent

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this daja vu all over again?

A new low for this forum but definitely a new high for level of BS.

Ummm, wasn't it you that was going to stamp a block to sell it, or to make it look numbers matching or something of that nature. I guess you just experienced karma.

but i thought if someone had restamped the parts with the correct numbers, that made it a #'s matching car, and so much more desirable????.....
