Interior looks nice but could use some new pieces. Everything is readily available.
Currently the speedo isn't working. I think the speed sending unit is bad as it was working just last week. Hoping to have this resolved sooner than later. Been using my GPS as a speedo.
All 4 fender flares are 1" wider than stock. Looks factory and looks like what Chevy should have done from the start. It does not have that stupid 1970's overkill look to it at all.
Paint has some minor scratches here and there, the car is a driver not a trailer queen.
I have the original wheels for it, will sell them for $500 over auction close.
Why am I selling it? I spent the entire winter working on it and most of this spring. Time to move on and into something that doesn't ride on 1960's suspension.
Will seriously consider trades on a C5 convertible. No black interiors though.
Will pull auction down early if I find a local buyer / trade.
