#s matching motor, trans and rear. A body off frame restoration was
finished by D & M Corvette in 2000. A collector owned the car with
several others. He hardly drove his cars and kept them stored in a
dry building. He recently passed and the collection was sold. This
car was taken to a professional shop for complete inspection and
EXTERIOR: The body shows real well, I'm walking around the car and
don't see any damage. The panels fit very nicely, the headlights
open and close properly. The paint job goes back over 20 years and
it's very bright red with a glossy finish. If you're looking for
flaws you will find some but it presents itself real nice. Up front
the bumpers and emblem have been replaced. In back the taillight
assemblies were replaced, bumpers shine nice. New gas cap lid. The
power antenna was rebuilt. It has an optional lift off hard top
that's painted to match and overall in good condition. The white
convertible top was replaced, it looks new. The knock off wheels
still look new. The tires are brand new. New weatherstrips on
pillars and doors. And of course it has side exhaust, my favorite
part on the car.
INTERIOR: Very tidy and detailed. There's new firm cushions in the
seats, new upholstery. The center console is real nice and has a
Hurst shifter. The gauges were all restored. The speedometer head
was replaced, upgraded quartz movement in the clock. The knobs look

some light scratches on the glove box door and couple cracks on the
steering wheel. All new wiring harness throughout the entire car.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Vin number matching 327-300 hp motor. The

filter, choke tube and dual snorkel air cleaner. It has upper and
lower ignition shielding. Reproduction GM hoses and clamps. The
clutch fan and shroud look new, it has the correct expansion tank.

floors are in the raw which is correct. There is no damage, it has
complete spare tire carrier.
Nothing better than shifting gears in a red Vette roadster
listening to the rumble of the side pipes with the top down. This
is a good one to do it in. Frame off restored #s matching car!
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
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.

showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
