You are buying two packages with one deal- what can be better!
My late husband bought this Vette in the late 1980’s and spent five years doing a frame-off restoration (picture albums included in the sale) to the full Bloomington Gold standards. Not a detail was overlooked and it won numerous awards at various car shows. Then, in the late 1990’s either his youth spent racing cars in southern California or his need to tinker (former Professor of Mechanical Engineer at Villanova University) took hold. The original motor, seats, wheels & tires were all removed.
THIS MEANS it can be “restored” to its original condition when it came off the showroom floor with it's 427 BIG BLOCK, 390 HP 4-speed or sell the parts or sell the parts etc for a profit. (They are labeled and numbered) The original block, heads, and complete engine with a factory correct tri-power setup including intake, carbs, air cleaner, etc. is available along scads of other parts too numerous to mention and instruction manuals. Keep in mind, in 1968, the first year for the C3 generation, this is one of the 18,630 roadsters built.

Contour/Booster Seats from CORBEAU
He drove this car on race tracks around the country (CA, AZ, VA, NY, DE, NJ, FL & others). It’s unbelievably fast and sticks like glue to the road (just check out those tires). It has never been in an accident and is super clean - he cleaned it with Q-tips!!! It kept him busy hours a day and was his pride and joy. I am keeping his race helmet as my daily reminder of him, but the car in its current form and all the parts for the original vehicle must go as a bundle. The car itself was professionally appraised at $55, 000. Asking price for the WHOLE bundle is $45,900.00
This Corvette Stingray is a must see and drive.
Don't miss the opportunity to own this beautiful car!
