Same owner the last 44 years! #s match motor, trans and rear. Has
very desirable optional 350-350 hp and side exhaust. 72,456
original mile car.
EXTERIOR: It has a great look. Sits proud, gotta love the side
pipes and the chrome louvers in the front fenders. The body is in
excellent condition. I believe it's a no hit body. All the panels
fit really well. It is repainted the original Riverside gold with
an extra dose of metal flake. It really sparkles in the sun. It's
been polished out very smooth. I did just notice there is a
hairline crack at the very top peak of the passenger front fender.
All the chrome on the car is bright and shiny. The front bumper and
grills fit nice. It still has the water shields behind the grill to
protect the headlights. In back the bumpers are shiny and sit
level. Has an original antenna, door handles are bright. The chrome
covers were replaced ($1,500). It has the optional chrome louver
inserts in the fenders The door jambs have been repainted,
weatherstrips are real good. The glass on is all very good. The
rear window pops out and stores in a tray behind the seats. T-tops
also pop off and have their original storage bags, they also fit
behind the seats.
INTERIOR: Unabused original interior in very good condition. No it
isn't perfect, but not beat up, cracked or modified. Door panels
are very good. The original upholstery is very good but the
cushions are disintegrating and could use replacing. It looks like
the carpet front to back is in very good original shape. The
instrument area and center console is nice. It has the original
style chrome reverse lockout shifter and the original AM-FM radio.
Interior lights work. Kick panels are real nice. In back the three
compartments are good. It has deluxe shoulder belts, T-top bags and
a nice soft car cover. There is also a new plastic housing for the
e-brake, the original does have a crack.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: VIN number matching original to the car 350
with the optional 350 horsepower. This version is a sturdier engine
construction with thicker bulkheads, main cap bearings, longer
bolt, 4 bolt main bearing caps and improved cooling. This motor was
rebuilt about 1,000 miles ago and runs strong. It was left stock-
manifolds, air cleaner etc. Has GM finned aluminum valve covers. It
even has it's ignition shielding. All the components look proper-
fan, radiator, shroud. It has its original style fuel filter. The
wires and vacuum lines are tidy. It features power steering.
UNDERSIDE: It not detailed and spray canned. It is still impressive
to see how well preserved and proper everything is. Bottom of the
motor is still spotless since the rebuild. Has new high torque
starter. The M-20 Muncie 4-speed is vin #s matching and was gone
through. The 3.55 posi is the original to this car. The frame is
solid. The fiberglass floors are not damaged, still raw not painted
over. It still has it's spare tire carrier and lock. The power
steering unit looks fresh.
This is a very well cared for, unabused Vette. The 350 hp, 4-speed
and a 3.55 posi should be lots of fun. Aside from all the fun this
is an investment too!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
