BELIEVED TO BE A 4 – OWNER CAR. WE HAVE SPOKEN TO THE PAST TWO OWNERS BOTH OF WHICH ARE AVID CORVETTE GUYS. THIS CAR SAT FOR 15+ YEARS IN A CLIMATE CONTROLLED CORVETTE COLLECTION. WHEN WE PURCHASED THIS CAR FROM OWNER 4 ALL THAT WAS NEEDED TO MAKE IT ROAD WORTHY WHERE NEW BRAKES HOSES FLUIDS ETC. IT WAS IN FAIR CONDITION BUT HAD AN OLDER REPAINT SO WE DECIDED TO STRIP IT DOWN INSIDE AND OUT AND HAVE THE 100% NO HIT BODY REPAINTED IN ITS CORRECT FATHOM GREEN - CODE 983 USING ONLY THE BEST PAINT & MATERIALS AVAILABLE. THE STUNNING SHOW QUALITY REPAINT WAS DONE USING A PPG – DELTRON BASE COAT - CLEAR COAT THAT WAS LATER COLOR SANDED AND BUFFED TO A DEEP RICH WET-LOOK SHINE. WE THEN INSTALLED ALL NEW WEATHER-STRIPPING THROUGHOUT. THE CHROME IS ALL ORIGINAL AND BEAUTIFULLY PLATED. ALL THE GLASS IS ORIGINAL AS WELL AND IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION. THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS LIKE LOOKING INTO A MIRROR IT IS ABSOLUTELY DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS FROM EVERY ANGLE AS IT SHOULD BE FOR A CAR OF THIS CALIBER. THE INTERIOR WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE CARPETING THE INTERIOR IS ALL-ORIGINAL RIGHT DOWN TO THE DOOR PANELS AND SEAT COVERS WHICH HAVE THE FACTORY BUILT DATES STAMPED ON THEM. PLS SEE PICTURES PROVIDED. WHEN THE CAR ARRIVED THE CARPET WAS STAINED AND A BIT FADED SO WE REPLACED THE OLD CARPET WITH A NEW NOS 80/20 LOOP AND PADDING SET AND BEGAN TO REMOVE AND RESTORE EVERY PART OF THE INTERIOR ONE AT A TIME ON THE BENCH. THE GAUGE CLUSTER IS ALL ORIGINAL AS WELL INCLUDING THE CLOCK WHICH WAS INOPERATIVE SO WE REMOVED IT AND RESTORED ON THE BENCH AS WELL. NOW THE ORIGINAL FACTORY GAUGES WORK AS THEY SHOULD INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL CLOCK. THE CENTER CONSOLE AND ALL THE ORIGINAL INTERIOR PANELS WERE REMOVED CLEANED AND RE-DYED IN THE CORRECT 421 CODE SADDLE AND REINSTALLED.
