Vehicle Description

EXTERIOR: This is certainly a good looker! The Tuxedo black is like a mirror, the chrome sparkles and the custom wheels add some Wow. The body looks great. It's really straight, all the panels fit really well. Specifically I'm looking at passenger door and it fits spot on, the convertible top lid and the trunk fit exceptionally well, the driver's door is square and flush, same with the hood and even the gas door. There are no signs of body damage or repairs showing through the paint. The paint is not flawless but you'd have to look to find one. Overall it is like a mirror, looks like you could dive in. Upfront the chrome looks like it's new, stainless strips on top of the fenders are polished and straight. Stainless around the windshield is shiny and bright, vent window pillars are really nice original. The door handles look new. In back the bumper, tail lights and emblem look new. It has a convertible black top that is excellent. The weatherstrips were replaced. It has 17 inch polished Torque Thrust wheels with performance tires. The look great and improve handling.

INTERIOR: I'm sitting in the car right now. The dash pad has been replaced and fits really good, visors are new. The original style gauges looks to be in excellent condition. Steering wheel is not cracked. The carpet has been replaced and has carpet floor mats. Upholstery and door panels are very good. They've added seatbelts. The shifter was upgraded with a Hurst. It has a cheap radio. Overall not perfect but I think it is very good.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has a rebuilt 1962 327 motor with 340 hp. It has a GM aluminum intake, Edelbrock carb with electric choke and correct pie pan air cleaner lid. It also has finned aluminum Corvette valve covers and stock exhaust manifolds. The motor is clean, it looks like it was recently apart. It was upgraded with Mallory distributor and coil. The cooling system looks proper- the radiator looks like the original with the correct shroud, clutch fan and expansion tank. The VIN number tag is on the steering column like it should be. New fuel tank and sending unit.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It looks very nice. Has a new rubber mat and cardboard divider panel. The bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are painted gloss black, weatherstrip is new.

UNDERSIDE: The bottom of the motor is clean, solid and proper. The frame is solid. The fiberglass floors look good, no damage that I found. Bottom of the motor is clean, has correct screw in canister oil filter. The Muncie 4-speed looks fresh. Rear end was just rebuilt with new bearings and seals. Brakes were recently all rebuilt. Exhaust is solid. Misc new parts like bushings, brake hoses, shocks.

This is a sexy looking vintage vette. Overall excellent body, paint and trim. Runs great. Get ready to be complimented!
