The car was first purchased new in 1985, in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, and I purchased it from the second owner in July of 1997, with 90,000 miles on it. It has remained in the Bay Area, and to my knowledge has always been garaged. I bought it from a friend because I always wanted a Corvette, but now due to my age, I figure it is time to sell it. Since buying it, I overhauled the engine, the total carburation, exhaust and brake systems. The car has never been in an accident, and it runs and handles very well, especially after the work I had done on it.
The interior is in very good condition, and the vinyl seats are still like new, with some fading of the rear carpet under the glass hatchback cover. The only mechanical portion of the car that does not work properly is the air-conditioning unit.
