This Corvette is exceptional. Better than most vintage cars. The fit, finish, function and integrity is impressive. When I was buying it I thrilled. Several times I have mentioned to coworkers how nice this car is. You don't have to take my word for it. Multiple Corvette judges have inspected it let us know how impressed they were by giving it top awards. That takes all the risk out of buying this one!

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.
