A BIT OF HISTORY AND DETAILS OF RESTORATION
THIS CAR SAT FOR 15+ YEARS IN A CLIMATE CONTROLLED CORVETTE COLLECTION. WHEN I 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 BURGUNDY - CODE 988, 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 AND A FULL CERAMIC PAINT TREATMENT WAS APPLIED FOR MAXIMUM SHINE AND BEAUTY. 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. 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 REBUILT AND IS WORKING AS IT SHOULD. THE ORIGINAL FACTORY GAUGES ALSO WORK AS THEY SHOULD. THE CENTER CONSOLE AND ALL THE ORIGINAL INTERIOR PANELS WERE REMOVED, CLEANED AND RE-DYED IN THE CORRECT 421 CODE SADDLE AND REINSTALLED.
THIS AMAZING RESTORATION WAS LED AND PERFORMED BY A 30-YEAR VETERAN CORVETTE MASTER TECH BY THE NAME OF MANNY BUSTILLO WHICH ALSO GOES BY THE NICK NAME “VETTEITALL.” MANNY AND HIS TEAM HAVE RESTORED SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL C3’S YOU WILL EVER COME ACROSS.
