I now own the project bike in post #79.I'll be pulling a few parts together from my stash and then selling it a bit more complete.probably in the 250 range if anyone is interested.
Got you on the list, even though it might be for a short time. I'll let you know if I come across anyone looking for a project.

All things being equal, how much of a premium do stick shift corvettes bring vs a standard kickback hub version?

I have a chance to buy a stick shift version... What to look out for when buying?

Your first question is hard to answer. From sales on eBay, a regular Corvette $250+ and for a 5 speed $600+.

The Corvette production lasted for 11 years and the Corvette 5 speed production was spotty and produced a day or two in each of it's 9 1/2 month total production time.

First thing to look for is all the correct drive train components. All the other components were the same as the regular Corvettes. Another thing to look for is it has all 3 cable guides and shifter mount. The type of cable guides on the 62 model are notorious for being broken or missing.

Here's the "5 speed" corevette! I'm thinking it's not an original 5 speed?!

That is a real 1962 Corvette 5 speed. The welded on shifter mount may have been broken off. The shifter mount and cable guides were spot welded verses being brazed on like the 61 models. Fork is bent.

From what I can see in that picture it looks like it has the original derailleur and spoke protector. The freewheel and rear hub is most likely the original also but can't tell from the picture. That stick shift looks like it came out of a Kenworth 18 speed. There are huret clamp on shifter mounts for the original set up if the mount is broken off then that shifter can be used on a Sting Ray. The front carrier and light are missing and the picture doesn't show the 50$ rear reflector. Fenders and rims look very nice, but pictures are deceptive with the bright work. What's the seller's price range?

And, was the serial number posted?

This one recently changed hands again so the new owner's name would be appreciated. You can PM me and I'll update the Registry.
The serial number posted by the previous owner H113651 doesn't match the one Krateness posted. I'm inclined to believe the number Krateness posted is correct. SN H115631.
