1971 Chevrolet Corvette

1971 corvette convertible 454 4 speed non matching early 70's motor. Its a real 454 car. This car has been reported to have only 12,000 original miles on it and Box A title shows 12,000 miles. I have no documentation from the original owner and cant confirm it so i would sell it as a 112,000 car.
The Good:All gauges, arning lights, oor buzzer and even the clock works!Head lights go up and down great.Wipers work as they should.The steering ram cylinder was leaking at the seal so i replaced that, he hoses and the control valve.Top is new and goes up and down easily.Carpet appears to be original and in excellent shape throughout.New fuel pump.Tires look new.New battery.New 750 carb.Frame has never had rust and underside is clean.Starts up fine,trans shift like new, o noises,plenty of power.Aftermarket aluminum radiator with a dual electric fan.Still has clutch drive fanHas power steering and power brakesThe not as good:Recently painted but driver quality to me.
Pan gasket has slight drip nothing major.
Some weather stripping, ot all needs replaced.Chrome is ok not perfect.Some trim rings have curb rash.
Windshield has crack.
I have described the car the best i can. This is not a restored car and maintains most of its originality. It drives with no issues at 70mph. Could use an electric choke on carb as its a little cold blooded.
Will help with shipping if needed.
