This is a super solid and original 25th anniversary Corvette. This is a California car that was parked close to the beach so there is some surface rust/discoloration. The engine starts right up and sounds great and runs extremely well. It has a nice throaty exhaust and the car is in good tune. The 4 speed manual transmission shifts into gear fine and the clutch feels normal. The car needs new tires (nice honeycomb style wheels) and the rear tires barely hold air so we only drove it outside of our gate at 5 mph. The brakes work and felt normal. The drivers window goes down and the passenger side does not. The air conditioning is inoperable. The windshield is cracked. The odometer stopped working at 98,040 so the true miles are unknown. The paint is old and has various imperfections with a lot of patina. There are no major fiberglass cracks. The car is complete with the exception of the urethane front bumper cover. The headlights come up a little, however they will need to be looked at and ajusted.
The interior still has the very attractive red leather with just the right amount of wear. Great color combination.....The carpeting mostly on the passenger side has imperfections. Nice dash and instrumentation.
There is no doubt that this car is in need of some TLC both (light) mechanically and cosmetically, what we have here is a great starter kit for a restoration of fix up a bit and drive/enjoy as-is. The drive-train seems nice and solid with a great running engine. Visually the undercarriage is not pretty however it should clean up nicely and is very structurally sound/tact.
Overall this Corvette has good bones with an authentic and honest look. The car has been sitting for many years and should be completely gone through regardless of what you want to do with it. We have not tested anything other than we have listed, so what you see is what you get, nothing more, nothing less.The car is ONLY available to out of state or country buyers.
This car also available for sale in other venues and is subject to removal from the auction at anytime shouldit be sold. If you have any questions call Evan at 310-594-4224 or email. Shipping can be arranged worldwide. Thanks for looking!
