DESCRIPTION

This is a beautifully restored classic Corvette with some very desirable upgrades. It has a reliable GM crate motor, air conditioning and electric assist power steering.



EXTERIOR: This is the "classic" Corvette fully trimmed with chrome, white wall tires and side coves. I didn't find any body damage. The Inca silver is laid out evenly. The clear coat is extra glossy, it looks like it was dipped in clear and polished smooth. The chrome and trim shines brightly. Up front the bumpers and grill look like they've been rechromed, new center emblem. The side moldings look new. In back the bumpers have been rechromed, emblem replaced. It has reproduction hubcaps with the spinners on reproduction Firestone whitewall tires. All new Coffman convertible assembly. New frame, weather strips and black top. Jambs are glossy, new weatherstrips.



INTERIOR: The interior was restored using premium Al Knoch carpet, door panels and seats. The dash pads were replaced. The original gauges were rebuilt and function properly. Upgraded with a retro Am-Fm wonderbar radio. Under the dash is a $1500 electric power steering assist on the column. It has a 3 spoke polished woodgrain steering wheel. The shift bezel is all new, has correct reverse lockout shifter.



ENGINE COMPARTMENT: New, very reliable GM crate 350-290 hp motor. It has aluminium intake, chromed dual feed Quick Fuel carb, and HEI ignition. Dressed up with chrome valve covers and reproduction air cleaner. New aluminium radiator. New hood latch assembly. The battery is new. It runs cool with a new aluminium radiator, flex fan and the proper shroud. The passengers are kept comfortable thanks to a new heat and air conditioning system.



TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The fiberglass is smooth and painted very neatly. It has a new rear seat divider, plywood tire lid, rubber mat, weather strip and latches.



UNDERSIDE: It is exceptionally clean under this car. The frame is solid, smooth metal painted black. The fibreglass floors are clean. The front end has new bushings and shocks. Looking up at the motor it still looks brand new including the fuel pump and the starter. It has a T-10 4 speed transmission. It looks clean, the linkage looks fresh. The brakes have been redone, new brake lines and hoses. The emergency brake cables are hooked up. New shocks in back. The dual exhaust system looks brand new.



This is a slick looking Corvette built to drive! Try finding one that looks stock but has a/c, power steering and a GM crate motor.



I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
