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
