This is my new build thread for my recently acquired 1987 Z02, LS3, Z49 equipped MKI Turbo Firefly. Available in Canada (and a small number exported to Puerto Rico) during the 1987 and 1988 model years, it’s colour choices were limited to red and white. This red version came from the Edmonton area and has 210,000km on it. Options include… nothing. The current plan is to strip it and use the shell I bought recently and swap everything on to it, but in Skatch you can plate anything 1987 and older without inspection so I might drive it as is.

I offered to buy these on 20/10/20 and they arrived yesterday. They polished up nice and will look great on the MKI with a layer of white Plasticoat on them.

Front brakes have new rotors, pads, calipers and all new hardware. I think it was all original.

Spent time detailing and scrubbing the interior.
