This Corvette Coupe For Sale hailed originally from Anaheim, California when it sold from the Cone Brothers Chevrolet dealership to its first owner on June 10, 1966. The vehicle would spend its early years cruising the streets of Orange, CA being serviced regularly at Cone Chevrolet and staying with the original family owners until approximately 1992. It would trade hands to another Los Angeles area resident falling into the care of NFL football player and Heisman Trophy winner, John Cappelletti, who would service it as necessary, enjoying his newly acquired Corvette until July 1994. He would then sell it to another southern California resident, Johnny Pagnini of Johnny Pag Motorcycles in Riverside, CA. He too would enjoy his classic car investment by driving it to 96,283 miles before asking Corvette restoration specialist, Automotive Expertise in Huntington Beach, CA, to commence a full overhaul of the original engine and transmission. So in June 2007, Automotive Expertise would meticulously rebuild both the engine and transmission preserving the original components where possible. The factory block was cleaned and magnafluxed, then carefully decked to preserve the factory stampings, then bored and honed, with align-honed main bearings. It would receive 8 new pistons and rings, new camshaft and cam bearings, main bearings, a ground crank, new rods, rod bearings, all of which would be fully balanced to standard 300 horsepower specifications. Both heads were resurfaced with fresh valve guides and seats, guide seals, new exhaust valves, valve springs, hydraulic lifters, and head gaskets. Others additions included a new water pump, fuel pump, oil pump, period correct Holley carburetor (original A.I.R. version included), drive belts, all fresh gaskets, hoses, ignition equipment, front wiring harness, timing chain set, battery, and all fluids! The complete engine/transmission rebuild on this classic Corvette for sale also included servicing the rear differential, factory a/c system, completely new braking equipment with new hoses, e-brake cables, as well as replacing the front and rear shocks. All service records of this car from 1967 to present day are included, along with the original Protect-O-Plate, factory brochure, and owner's manual. It would travel to Houston, TX in 2014, before coming home to St. Louis in April 2015 where it has been ever since. Immediate service upon arrival included all new fluids (Dot 4 brake fluid flush, transmission flush, coolant flush, renewed differential fluid, and engine oil/ filter). The tires were installed in January 2018 along with new front control arm bushings. The eye-catching Chevrolet Corvette continues to start, run, and drive with perfect ease! It has been driven a total of 10,689 miles since the overhaul 12 years ago. All features are in full working order including cold air conditioning, power windows, electric clock, power antenna, and all other safety items.
