I think if you're going to bother building an older vehicle you might as well find something 75 and older so it's smog exempt...

I would only do it if you've ALWAYS wanted a '78 or similar 2nd Gen. Otherwise sell your LT1 car and trade up for something different. Vettes are getting cheaper. ;)

If that is your plan, then no, don't do it. You are going to invest A LOT of $$$ into doing a boosted project and you won't get nearly what you put into it back when you decide to sell. You're just going to throw money away. That's why I said, get the car you've ALWAYS wanted, then sink your money into it...

Agreed...a 2nd Gen has to be an early split bumper body style for it to look awesome, otherwise look for a different car.

If your gonna trade for something that old AT LEAST get something smog exempt, that's too big of a benefit to pass up.

I would say get it, but from you plans I would say either a third gen or an early second gen.

Late second gen is not anything a person will be willing to actually give top dollar for, anything from really 74-86 are pretty much the lost souls when it comes to Fbodies. I love 74-77 but would only get a 74-75 realistically. If you are shooting for the look of that 70-73 split bumper then buy one of those the cost to make it look like that will balance the price of the car out.

Unless you get that 78 for like $800 then go for it, if not then pass on it. That car should be tops a $2000 car if they had the 305 rebuilt recently.
