Outstanding driver Corvette that has won "People's Choice" awards at local car shows. An incredibly strong runner that has always been garage kept. This car left the factory with the L46 engine, alarm system, and optional shoulder belts.

The car has not seen rain, snow, or salt in over 25 years. The paint on this car is over 19 years old, yet still retains it's like new shine. Car was purchased as a barn find in 2007, and has had a frame-on restoration since then (detailed restoration history available on request).

This car has matching numbers on the heads, intake, carburetor, transmission, and differential. The block is a GM service replacement from the early 70's, and has been in the car since that time. The engine has ~15,000 miles on it since the last rebuild, and it runs great. She has true 11:1 compression, but due to the LT-1 cam (gobs of overlap), and the hardened valve seats, she can run on premium fuel. The LT-1 cam makes this car sound mean. . .even with the stock optional off road exhaust.

I drive the car on nice days during the warmer months. I commute in it frequently, and it has never failed me. Far more reliable that I ever expected a vintage car to be.

Regarding the photos. The undercarriage photos you may notice evidence of old differential pinion seal leak. That has long since been fixed along with all new seals on the differential. The front and rear main engine seals weep a bit ever since I switched to synthetic oil. Conventional oil didn't leak at all (go figure). That said, it does not leak enough to warrant replacement. The oil you see in the photos is from 15,000 miles of use without being wiped off, as I don't see the point in hiding anything.

She is a beautiful car that needs to be seen to really appreciate, and I hope that she finds a good home. I'm only selling her to finance my current project car. I do not need to sell her, nor do I have unrealistic expectations of the cars value. If you are looking for a great car to get started in the collector car hobby, this is your car. Contact me for more information.
