A BIT OF HISTORY AND DETAILS OF RESTORATION
THIS CAR WAS SOLD ON 10/68 AT JAMESON CHEVROLET,BELIEVED TO BE A 4 – OWNER CAR. WE HAVE SPOKEN TO THE PAST OWNERS WHO ARE AVID CORVETTE GUYS.
THIS CAR SAT FOR 15+ YEARS IN A CLIMATE CONTROLLED CORVETTE COLLECTION. WHEN WE PURCHASED THIS CAR FROM OWNER 4, LL THAT WAS NEEDED TO MAKE IT ROAD WORTHY WHERE NEW BRAKES, OSES, LUIDS 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, SING ONLY THE BEST PAINT & MATERIALS AVAILABLE.
THE SHOW QUALITY REPAINT WAS DONE USING A PPG – DELTRON BASE COAT - CLEAR COAT THAT WAS LATER COLOR SANDED AND BUFFED TO A DEEP RICH, ET-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, T 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, HE 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, HE 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, NCLUDING THE CLOCK WHICH WAS INOPERATIVE SO WE REMOVED IT AND RESTORED IT ON THE BENCH. NOW THE ORIGINAL FACTORY GAUGES WORK AS THEY SHOULD INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL CLOCK. THE CENTER CONSOLE AND ALL THE ORIGINAL INTERIOR PANELS WERE REMOVED, LEANED AND RE-DYED IN THE CORRECT 421 CODE SADDLE AND REINSTALLED. KEEPING THE CAR ALL ORIGINAL AND RESTORING THE ORIGINAL INTERIOR ITEM BY ITEM IS A MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE PROCESS THEN SIMPLY REPLACING THE ALL ORIGINAL PARTS WITH NEW ITEMS.
FRAME
WE STARTED OFF WITH A FRAME AND BIRDCAGE THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY ROCK SOLID NOT A SPECK OF RUST EVER. WE THEN REMOVEDEVERYTHINGFROM THE FRAME AND STARTED THE RESTORATION.

ALL THE ORIGINAL BORN WITH HARDWARE; BOLTS, UTS, ASHERS ETC WERE CLEANED, IRE-BRUSHED & REFURBISHED. WE THEN APPLIED THE CORRECT FACTORY STENCIL MARKINGS AND TECH-INSPECTIONMARKS ON EVERY ITEM. SEE THE BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES. THESE STENCIL MARKINGS INCLUDE, HE CHASSIS NUMBERS, HICH WERE APPLIED TO A FULLY STRIPPED AND PAINTED RUST FREE CHASSIS AND DONE IN THE CORRECT GM BLACK.
THE FIBER OPTICS ENDS WERE CLEANED AND TESTED. BOTH FRONT HEADLIGHT WASHER’S ARE PRESENT AND WORKING.
THE CORRECT PAINT COLORS WERE USED ON EACH ITEM ALL BOLTS, UTS, ASHERS ON CHASSIS AND ENGINE BAY WERE PAINTED IN SATIN CLEARED TO PREVENT DISCOLORATION AND FUTURE SURFACE RUSTING. THIS BABY WILL LOOK GREAT FOR YEARS TO COME.
