How To Inspect A Corvette For Rust

This isn't going to be a huge article that drags on for hours and hours, I will cover the areas that you need to look for rust in 1963-82 Corvettes, it will be a basic article designed to help you save money on the purchase of your Corvette.

A Corvette can be a very illusive thing, you think rust, how is that possible it made out of fiber glass, for this article we won't be talking about the body of the car we'll be talking about the frame, and a few other areas of America's sports car.

I know you love corvettes, and I do to they are without a doubt a very special car, and considered to be America's only sports car, but when you're buying one what you don't know can hurt you, and it probably will, so it's time for me to lend a helping hand.

Obviously the entire car is not fiber glass, the car sits on a frame made of steel, and steel will rust it that can't be changed, but it can be fixed, so let's dive in to this article head first, if you're thinking of buying a Corvette this will help you for sure.

First of all let's start with the wind shield of the car, it is fiber glass wrapped around steel, and obviously steel will rust, so let's begin by looking around the frame of the wind shield, if it's rusted badly it may show as fiber glass separating from the post at the bottom of the wind shield.
