This Corvette Stingray is a great looking and driving car. It is not a show car but shows off very well. This is the last model year in which you get both front and rear chrome bumpers. It has T-Tops and the back window is removable (last year for this option). This has the deluxe interior package which includes leather seats, telescoping/tilt wheel, wood grain on door cards, power windows and air conditioning. Power window motors and switches are new. All gauges work but the clock. This is mostly an original car with some good upgrades and a lot of new parts. T-top bags and car cover are included.

Body is straight and looks great. It is not perfect. A few rivets show right behind the headlights but don't show to bad. Drivers side front fender has a slight dip in it by the hood.
Wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes. New rotors, master cylinder and brake lines. Parking brake works great also.

Front end rebuilt in 2017. New upper and lower ball joints, upper and lower control arm bushings, etc. New power steering cylinders and control valve with all new hoses in 2018. Power steering pump replaced 2017.
This is a very nice Vette for being 46 years old. Everything works. Sounds great and drives great! Don't let this one get away from you. I'm only selling it because I'm unable to drive due to poor eyesight and no longer have drivers license.
