The originality of this Corvette is evident as soon as you walk up on the classic Corvette. This well preserved, Pace Car edition Corvette presents nicely in its factory original Black/Silver, two-tone paint.

The original fiberglass is in good overall condition but the seems in the front and rear fenders are beginning to show through the paint. The exterior is complimented nicely by the factory, polished aluminum wheels. The glass T-Top roof panels are in very good condition. The original Grey Vinyl and cloth interior is in very good condition with only minor wear present. Powering this great Corvette is its numbers-matching, L48 350 cubic inch V8 backed by its 350 Turbo-Hydramatic, 3-speed automatic transmission. Both the engine and transmission perform just as they should without issue. This Pace Car edition Corvette is nicely equipped with factory options such as: power steering, power disc brakes, air conditioning, in-dash tachometer, tilt/telescopic steering, power windows, power door locks, intermittent wipers, cruise control, rear defrost, and AM/FM stereo.
