1977 Chevrolet Corvette L82 T-Top 400HP with Blue Leather Interior
Engine rebuilt to 400HP; only around 10,000 miles since rebuild. New battery, new cables, complete rebuild 10-12 years ago at 78,000 miles (over $20,000 invested). Absolutely a beast! Starts, runs, and drives well.
Pioneer subwoofer and 6-disc CD changer. Has a cover. Comes with smoke T-tops (as shown) AND the original white T-tops. Original engine is for sale outside of the auction and can be worked out between the high bidder and owner if desired; it is not included with the car. Stored winters, very clean!
TONS of paperwork! A complete 3-ringed binder was kept for this vehicle with TONS of information. Original manual included along with the electrical manual and a parts book, etc. The blue leather interior is why we hand picked this gem of a muscle car; it is gorgeous!
Only known issue is that the A/C currently has a slow leak.
