113 k$ to install a brand new Chevy engine + transmission in a '67 Corniche !
A fellow member of the french forum just bought this car for.... 15 k€ ($ 16.700).
Fixing the RR engine would have been cheaper.
Market value of the car would have been higher.
Well my two cents...anyone who spends 113k on a Chevy engine conversion should be sent to an insane asylum.
Secondly, I would leave a corniche alone and rebuild the RR engine, properly maintained its bullet proof. If it were a silver spirit I'd say make it in to a hot rod, not a corniche, too valuable and too much future value potential.
I have spent $ 25,000 so far on essentially overhauling the car with new and rebuilt parts (found a very meticulous mechanic in Ashland, Oregon) I am hoping that I made the right decision since the resale value of this car is a maximum of $ 45,000
The following company could have replaced the Rolls engine with GM for $ 20,000:
