1 owner until 2012! It was then given a high quality, body off the frame restoration by a professional Corvette shop. It is a factory black over red car with vin #s matching motor. Has both tops. Very fresh, it doesn't even look like it's been driven yet.
EXTERIOR: It is absolutely striking. The body and paint were not this good when they left the factory new. This body is straight and the body parts fit outstandingly well. The gaps are tight and flush. You can read the fine print on our contract in the reflection, it is like a mirror. I walked around it twice and can't find any flaws, no stress cracks, no chips. It is not full of reproduction trim. All of the chrome and stainless were sent to the east coast to be restored. Every single piece is pristine. The stainless around the windshield, top of doors and fenders is polished like chrome. The jambs are painted. New weatherstrips and window seals. New windshield and side glass. The hubcaps and spinners are pristine, the rims are painted gloss black. There are new reproduction Firestone tires. The convertible top is white, in good shape. I was told it still the original. The hardtop was repainted, the rubber, glass and stainless trim is nice original. White headliner is bright.
INTERIOR: It's restored inside to factory condition. This car always had a red interior. New correct carpet. The seats have been rebuilt, new cushions and new correct upholstery. Dash pad is replaced. The entire instrument area is restored- gauges, knobs, wonderbar radio all look like new. Door panels, visors, mirror have been replaced. The shifter plate is new, has correct lock out shifter.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: #s matching motor, the actual vin matches this car. It was recently, completely rebuilt. The motor compartment is meticulously restored to original condition. It has original manifolds, valve covers, even the right details on the valve covers. It has the ignition shielding, even the lower pieces by the spark plugs. The original pie pan air cleaner sits on top of the correct carburetor with correct fuel filter and lines. It has correct GM hoses and clamps. New wiring loom. It is very fresh looking, the paint isn't even burnt off the manifolds.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The fiberglass is clean with a coat of gloss black. The red divider board is new. The rubber mat is original and brittle. Under the mat the spare and tire board are there. New weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: Wow, it is beautiful underneath this car. The pristine floors were painted a crisp, glossy white and it really looks sharp against the detailed black chassis. The body was removed from the frame and everything was restored to like new. The bottom of the motor is still spotless. The 4-speed is vin # matched to the car and looks like new. The suspension, steering and brakes are rebuilt. Shocks, lines, bushings, axle straps, nuts and bolts are all new. The exhaust is new and upgraded to 2 1/2 inch. I think it is beautiful underneath this car.
