Vehicle Description

1 of 240 LT-1s ever built with air conditioning! #s match and documented. I just bought it from a collector. He paid $58,000 for the car and spent about $17,000 on improvements. This car is dialed in! It has the original warranty protect-o-plate which has the factory options the car was ordered with. The car was sold new to David Kopecky 5-9-72 in Dallas Texas.

EXTERIOR: It has been repainted in it's original classic white color. I just walked around the car twice and did not see any damage or cracks. The body appears to be in great shape. The paint is actually polished very glossy. Of course the T-tops are removable and store behind the seat. Actually this year the window pops out as well and has it's own storage tray also behind the seat. Being an LT-1 it has the raised hood with the striping. Upfront the bumper looks like it's been rechromed, the grills are good original. It still has the water shields that protect the headlights. The rear bumpers are rechromed and sit level. License plate housing, emblems, correct antenna and mirrors are new. I open the door to find the weather strips are brand new. It has the original serial number decal still attached. It has a new set of reproduction Firestone Wide Oval tires on 15x8 Corvette rally wheels. The trim rings and center caps are new.

INTERIOR: The original radio and amp was sent out and rebuilt. New dash speakers and antenna assembly. The clock was rebuilt. All the dash and interior bulbs were replaced. New headlight switch and ignition switch. It has correct shifter with reverse lockout and chrome ball. New genuine leather upholstery. It has deluxe seat belts. It also looks like the carpet has been replaced front and back. The rear compartment doors are all in great shape. Overall the gauges, instrument panel, center console is all very good. It has a tilt telescopic steering wheel. The door panels are very good, has a few small cracks.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: VIN number matched, original LT-1 performance 350 motor. It has the correct GM aluminum intake and #s correct Holley carb. Correct finned aluminum valve covers and stock exhaust manifolds. It even has it's original smog equipment still attached and working. It also has the correct open element air cleaner and ignition shielding. The wiper motor, horn, alternator look new. The factory air conditioning was updated with the 134a freon. The fan shroud looks new, has the proper clutch fan and reproduction GM hose. New power brake system. Vacuum system was inspected and repaired, it has many new parts and hoses so the wiper door and headlights function correctly. It is a very nice looking motor compartment. Neat and orderly. There are not to many Vettes in existence that has an LT-1 motor, air conditioning, power steering and brakes under the hood!

UNDERSIDE: Rebuilt front and rear suspension. In front the upper and lower balljoints, idler arm, control arm bushings, sway bar bushings and end links were just replaced. New steering dampner and control valve. New rear spring, mounts and control arms. 4 new Delco HD shocks. Original vin # matching M-20 4-speed. The codes also match the protect-o-plate. Rebuilt 3.55 rear end, new cover. New fuel sending unit. He bought a rally wheel, installed a tire and had it balanced for a spare. Disc brakes at all 4 wheels, they were inspected and serviced, new front calipers and rotors. New side exhaust system. The raw fiberglass floors are undamaged and clean. The frame was cleaned and painted.

I drove this car home. It felt great, ran great. You will NOT burn your legs on the side exhaust. I got out wearing shorts and put my legs right on them.
You can enjoy this car too. There are Corvette clubs and functions. You can participate in getting this car judged which will raise it's value. It is an investment grade Corvette, extremely rare and desirable!

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 your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
