The most frequently asked question by Corvette enthusiasts but most find it on the tank. However, it never amazes the other places an owner will find a buildsheet. A few weeks ago, I heard from another owner and when I asked, he shared that he found it while tearing the interior of his 1979. He stated:
I found the build sheet for my car under the carpet in the back but it was for the wrong car!
I recall at an NCRS event at Lowe’s Motor Speedway, and the owner and I were going over the car when he reach underneath and retrieved an original, gear oil scented buildsheet from the strut bracket of his 1978 low-mileage Silver Anniversary Corvette.
I have concluded owners must have a genuine curiosity about their Corvette and be aware while doing routine maintenance, restoration or preservation that something may be hiding and they should proceed gingerly with their work.
